Finally, we have an answer to the burning question: When legendary Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew needed a reprieve from the iconic suit while filming "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," who stepped in as his double? Prepare yourself...
His name is Joonas Suotamo, 6-foot-11-inch-tall Finnish basketball player, ex-Penn State athlete and current devastating hottie.
??? BABE ALERT ???
And it's clear he is having THE BEST TIME as part of the official "TFA" family. Here he is with Mayhew, both on and off set.
Now, with more John Boyega.
And in an image sure to bend the space time contiuum with its sheer force of handsome, here he is bro-ing out with Oscar Isaac.
While Mayhew will always be the OG Chewbacca in our minds, Suotamo may've just stolen our hearts. Especially because he knows a gentleman keeps industry secrets to himself. Regarding the amount of screen time he had in TFA, he told Business Insider, "I will never get into it...that's for people to guess and figure out."
Let's hope his next acting role is a bit more...revealing.
