The Raid Actors Join Star Wars Episode VII Cast

Three of The Raid and The Raid 2 cast have reportedly joined the cast of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Twitch Films has learned that The Raid lead Iko Uwais,  Yayan Ruhian (Mad Dog/ Prakoso actor), and Cecep Arif Rahman, the finale fighter from The Raid 2 credited as The Assassin, are all set to appear in the 2015 sci-fi film.

There’s no word yet on who exactly these actors will be playing, and in what capacity. But it’s important to note that all three are martial arts experts, and are highly skilled with all sorts of weapons. This’d further reinforce director J.J. Abrams’ commitment to using real-life stunt people. and avoid the heavy usage of CGI.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18, 2015 in the United States.
