We recently learned that a certain classic Star Wars character won't have a cameo in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, word has come today that another character will pop up briefly in the upcoming prequel.
Jimmy Smits, who played Senator Bail Organa in the prequel films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, confirmed on The Talk that he will be back for Rogue One. "Can you say the word cameo?" he laughed. "Can you say the words small part?"
Of course, while Organa -- Princess Leia's adopted dad -- was blown to bits by the Death Star in A New Hope (offscreen), he would be alive and well during the events of Rogue One... and presumably working with Mon Mothma and the rest of the burgeoning Rebel Alliance.
Smits also reprised the role of Senator Organa in The Force Unleashed game. Who else could show up in this film? Is it too much to hope for a dianoga cameo?
