The Late Show with Stephen Colbert/YouTube

For nearly two years, fans have been waiting patently for more information about the final installment of the Star Wars franchise. But the actors are remaining tight lipped, even as fans grow more anxious.

Keri Russell is no different. She wasn't in the last two films, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, but she has a role in the yet to be named finale. She stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on March 26, and she refused to reveal a thing.

Russell is known for playing the titular role of Felicity on the show Felicity. Most recently, she portrayed Elizabeth Jennings on FX's The Americans, which had it's series finale last May.

Colbert is rewatching the entire series, and mentioned he had not seen the finale yet. Russell showed off her secret keeping skills by not revealing a single spoiler.

Then Colbert asked Russell about her Broadway debut in the show Burn This, in which she works with Adam Driver.

Colbert asked her if she was the star of the show.

Russell responded:

"Well in my mind, Adam, because he has this great showy part, I always though it was Adam's play and we started rehearsing and I thought, I'm in this a lot more than I thought."

Driver also plays Ben Solo/Kylo Ren (the son on Princess Leia and Han Solo) in the newest arc of Star Wars. Russell gets to work with Driver again because she has a role in Star Wars Episode IX.

Colbert first brought up Star Wars by asking what Russell's son thought of her involvement.

He even asked if he visited the set, to which she responded:

"He didn't get to visit the set, because we shot in London in Pinewood where they shoot the original, but I do have the coolest costume. I will say."

Colbert then tried to get Russell to reveal the title of the new movie and what her roles were, even insisting that director J.J. Abrams wouldn't care because they are friends:

"J.J.'s a friend of mine, he wouldn't mind if you told me. We're all friends of J.J's here."

Keri Russell held her ground, adamant the she wouldn't tell. As a last resort, Colbert tried to guess what kind of character she would play.

With a camera focused on Keri's face, he read his guesses:

"Your character is Yoda's ex wife, Rachel who runs a profitable business on Tattooine. You and Yoda met on Okay Cupid, and he said he was six foot two.

Your character is pretending to be a member of The First Order but is actually a Russian spy with a lot of wigs.

Your character isn't integral to the story, you just keep walking into random scenes asking if you left your keys there."

Being the professional she is, Russell didn't let anything slip, though she did find the humor in his guesses. Colbert's last guess, especially, was a fan favorite.

He says:

"This is my big guess. This is my final guess. This is based partially on the length and color of your hair, your character is Chewbacca's step sister, Chewbecky."

People seemed to like the idea of Chewbecky:


And of course they had their own theories:




Russell is clearly good at keeping secrets, maybe because she played a Russian spy on TV for six seasons. She wouldn't even give away the name of Episode IX.

Guess we'll just have to wait for the movie to come out to get all the answers. Let's hope we can make it til then!

If you've never seen the comedy classic, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," there is a scene where Arthur, King of the Britons, encounters a black knight guarding a bridge. Arthur quickly figures out the stalwart knight will not let him pass, so the two do battle, with the king severely injuring his enemy in the process.

He cuts off all his arms and legs.

Yet the black knight persists, insisting his injuries are, "but a scratch."

Turns out this happens to people in real life, not so much with swords and knights, but with can openers and ice skates.

We are currently in a market that favors workers over employers – many workers feel empowered to seek out different positions and have reevaluated what they want in their careers amid the financial fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many workers left their jobs in search of greener pastures because they were ready for a change, and others were more than happy to leave behind toxic workplaces that only burned them out.

As you can imagine, they've become rather adept at noticing red flags during the interview process and beyond.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor taylortaylortaylorrr asked the online community,

"What is a red flag from an employer that people might not immediately recognize as a red flag?"

Computers are not everyone's strong suit. Generation z is now reaching adulthood, and they've had computers, smart phones, and iPads since birth.

For anyone in an older generation, this wasn't the case. Computers weren't even advertised for the home until the Superbowl of 1984, and even then it was priced at $2,500.

Come the turn of the 21st century, computers are a staple in the home, but the advancements in the last two decades have left some people scrambling to keep up. Things that might seem basic to some are shockingly uncommon to others.
