James Bond star Daniel Craig will not be making a cameo in the forthcomingStar Wars movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The 47-year-old actor, busy putting the finishing touches on his fourth movie as the British spy Spectre, asked "Why would I ever bother doing something like that", according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"Pffft. Play an extra in another movie?" the superstar said about the possibility of a short part in the seventh instalment of Star Wars, entitled The Force Awakens.

Simon Pegg had revealed that the big screen icon would be making a brief turn as a Stormtrooper.

"Talk to Simon Pegg. He obviously knows way more than I do. He's just jealous because he's not in Star Wars. He's got some issue with (Star Wars director JJ Abrams). I don't know what it is. You need to talk to Simon about it," he added.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens gets a theatrical release on December 18, 2015, while Spectre will be out on October 23.
