Look, the jig is up: Josh Gad has been whiling away the hours on the set of Murder On The Orient Express by trying to trick Daisy Ridley into divulging plot details of her other gig, a science fiction series about wizards and talking dogs called Star Wars. While first his ruse was pretty transparent, Ridley has continued to get tricked by him, and he even summoned the spectral presence of Dame Judi Dench to coerce her. Apparently none of it worked, so he has now pulled out the extremely big guns.
Bryce Dallas Howard, Penelope Cruz, Chris Pratt, Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, and many more are now in the action. For what it’s worth, Chris Pratt does not actually get around to asking her any questions, mostly just mentioning other film series that he happens to be in. Realistically, though, the time has come for Josh Gad to quit. We are much better off poring over non-English titles and promotional packaging for clues about the upcoming eighth episode of the popular, long-running family drama. Or, you know, just waiting, but who wants to do that?
