"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
The cameras will begin rolling again later this month on director J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, Heat Vision reports, after production was put on hold for two weeks due to Harrison Ford’s on-set injury in June.
During the hiatus, Mark Hamill’s son Nathan took a photo of his father outside Pinewood Studios’ Star Wars stage (below), showing the actor with his “contractually obligated” beard (the elder Hamill is posing with Lavar Bear, one of his son’s creations).
Hamill and Ford join fellow franchise veterans Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker, and newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie.
Star Wars: Episode VII opens Dec. 18, 2015.
