It's not uncommon for big name celebrities to have unlisted cameos. Richard Branson can be seen for about eight seconds of Casino Royale going through security. Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has two cameos in Shaun of the Dead — once as himself, and again as a zombie in a background shot. Now here's the part where we talk about Daniel Craig's rumored cameo in Star Wars: Episode VII.

According to The Sun (via Metro and others), Craig was on the Star Wars set at Pinewood Studios last week for two days of shooting. Said the report, "Daniel is close friends with JJ Abrams. He asked for some sort of secret cameo role — and was happy to have his name left off the posters."

Apparently his face won't even be seen, but we're sure it'll be obvious to anyone who sees the movie with Craig, when he laughs at a fairly innocuous moment and points up at the screen shouting, "hey look! There I am! That's me!" That's how we'd react, at least.

Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled for release December 18th, 2015. Update: And since you all have some really good ideas in the comments already — all involving Daniel Craig in various levels of nudity — keep it going!
