Warwick Davis's strategy of basically daring J.J. Abrams to refuse him has apparently worked out: He's going to have a brief role in Star Wars: Episode VII after all. Davis played Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi and had various roles in Phantom Menace; thinking out loud to IGN last year, Davis mused that in the new film, he could play a bad guy or even a Jedi, adding that "a villain with a lightsaber is the ultimate goal, if that's not asking too much." He just wants people to see his face! Davis cautioned that he wasn't "dying to get back inside an Ewok suit," but after Life's Too Short, he'd probably still prefer it to a frog suit.
