Yep, as it turns out, Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega has professed his love for the brutal but fascinating series. Boyega finally had a moment to take a breather, and he decided to fill his time with Attack on Titan.
Boyega said "My prayers have been said and my kneecaps moisturized. Now time to watch Attack on Titan for the whole day." It's unclear if he meant just season 2 or if he was starting from the first season, but either way, Funimation was happy to point him in the right direction.
Funimation said "1. Shea butter works wonders for the knees 2. Watch the dub or sub of AoT on FunimationNow! http://Funimation.com/attackontitan."
Sure there's a promotional advantage they get out of sharing the link, but you have to hand it to them for giving some rather informative advice on knee care. It really shows they care, don't you think?
It's not a bad time for Boyega to catch up either, as Attack on Titan season 3 has already been approved by Wit Studio. The next season is slated to air sometime in 2018 and should be even bigger than the reception for Attack on Titan season 2, which was already enormously successful.

He probably doesn't have much free time these days, especially considering all of the upcoming promotional work he will take on for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Hopefully, he can get caught up before he has to start the march to December.
You can find the description for Attack on Titan season 2 below.
Eren Jaeger swore to wipe out every last Titan, but in a battle for his life he wound up becoming the thing he hates most. With his new powers, he fights for humanity's freedom facing the monsters that threaten his home. After a bittersweet victory against the Female Titan, Eren finds no time to rest—a horde of Titans is approaching Wall Rose and the battle for humanity continues!
