Not much is known about DJ, a new character in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” but Empire has a new photo of actor Benicio Del Toro in character.
“This character could come straight out of a Bob Dylan or Tom Waites song, or even a Dostoyevsky novel,” Del Toro says. “He’s like something out of Dickens; there have been characters like him in all kinds of literature.”
The mysterious DJ appears to fall into a moral grey area, which seems to be a theme for many characters in the upcoming “Star Wars” installment. “He’s like a knife: if you grab him by the blade, he’ll cut you. If you grab him by the handle, he can be very, very useful,” said Del Toro.
