Dave Bautista has revealed that he has auditioned for some of the recent Star Wars films - but obviously didn't get a part. Nevertheless, the actor continues to be interested in joining the franchise.

"I’ve actually auditioned for a couple of Star Wars [movies] and they’ve turned me down," Bautista told Flickering Myth. "It was always a dream of mine to be in a Star Wars film.”

The actor doesn't reveal which films or roles he auditioned for, but said that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a particular favorite of his.

"I can’t say I’m the biggest fan of the latest installments. I particularly loved Rogue One," said Bautista. "I thought it was a really great film and I love that they went a little bit dark with it. I thought it was really interesting."

The next Star Wars film, Star Wars: Episode IX, is scheduled to debut in theaters December 20, 2019.
