‘Parks and Rec’ Alum Ben Schwartz Says He Cameoed as a Stormtrooper in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Is it ‘Han-Ralphio’ now?

In honor of “Star Wars” Day , “Parks and Recreation” alum Ben Schwartz shared a photo on Twitter, revealing that he made a cameo in J.J. Abrams’s “The Force Awakens” as one of the stormtroopers.

You can call him “Han-Ralphio” now.

“On this beautiful #MayThe4thBeWithYou, I feel like I can finally reveal that I played a Storm Trooper in @starwars The Force Awakens,” Schwarts tweeted today. “It was an incredible honor and years later, I’m still smiling from the experience but please do not tell BB8.”

Schwartz and “SNL” alum Bill Hader were credited as voice consultants on the film for the sound effects for BB-8. Schwartz told GQ about the experience of working on the film back in December 2015.

“The coolest thing about J.J. is that he’s working on what could be the biggest movie of all time, and he’s still down to collaborate with a Muppet-man like me — a stupid idiot like me,” Schwartz said. “We tried having me talk into a mic that synthesized the voice immediately, and that kind of worked. I cannot express to you how fun it was. We just played. We had every synthesizer.”

Other celebrities such as Daniel Craig, composer Michael Giacchino and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich also famously made cameos in the film as stormtroopers.
