Thought i saw Bossk in the new ep8 hd trailer

Just watched the new ep8 HD trailer and thought I saw Bossk falling down a hole but slowed it down and think it was just some random pilot in a looky-liky get up, got really excited for a bit there :) really excited to see the film now looks better and better with each release.
