In probably no surprise to anyone, J.J. Abrams has cast Greg Grunberg in Star Wars: Episode VII.
Grunberg has had major roles on both Felicity and Alias and has also had cameos on Lost and Star Trek, all of Abrams' biggest projects.
In a Twitter Q&A, Grunberg announced his casting.
It is unsure what his role will be, Grunberg had the small role of voicing a stepdad character in Star Trek, so at the moment there is no news of how big or how small his role will be.
The Grunberg/Abrams friendship began in the late '70s when they started shooting home movies together, which is what got Grunberg into acting, so it's pretty much become a staple that whatever Abrams does, Grunberg will be a part of.
Star Wars: Episode VII id due for release December 18, 2015.
