Hey! Nigel Godrich Has a Line in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Just prior to the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we learned longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich makes a cameo as a Stormtrooper in the movie, effectively making it impossible to discern Godrich from the expansive cast. Well, as it turns out, Godrich did, in fact, have a line in the blockbuster flick.

Supervising sound editor Matthew Wood has revealed the voices behind many of the film’s extras, including Godrich. Wood identifies the Radiohead producer as FN-9330, a Stormtrooper who discovers Chewbacca on an elevator in the First Order’s (that’s the Force Awakens regime born out of the Empire of the original Star Wars trilogy) Starkiller Base. What does Godrich the Stormtrooper say upon seeing Chewie? A memorable, startled “Hey!”

While Godrich’s contribution to The Force Awakens may be succinct, it will nevertheless help us spot his cameo upon second (or perhaps 10th?) viewings.

When he’s not appearing in high-profile movie productions, Godrich has been working with Radiohead on their ninth album. Though the follow-up to 2011’s The King of Limbs has yet to receive a title or release date, some hopefuls and truthers believe it could arrive any day now.
