Greg Grunberg Confirms Cameo Appearance in Star Wars: Episode 7!

Greg Grunberg & J.J. Abrams

Actor Greg Grunberg best known for starring as Matt Parkman on the NBC television series Heroes confirmed on Twitter that he will make a cameo appearance in Episode VII. This is not surprising at all, considering that Grunberg and J.J. Abrams are childhood friends and he briefly appeared on most of Abrams’ project…

 

 

The actual confirmation came as a reply to dorksideoftheforce’s question:

 

 


Also for those not familiar with Grunberg, the guys from DorkSideOfTheForce shared more about the actor:

They have worked together on many projects in the past including ABC’s Alias. Grunberg actually makes very small cameos in all of Abrams’ films. For instance in Star Trek, (2009) it’s Grunberg’s voice scolding the young Jim Kirk as he races away in his step-father’s car at the beginning of the film. He can also be overheard in Super 8 on a radio saying “I always wear lipstick on my shirt” when Joe Lamb goes to rescue Alice Dainard in the aliens lair. He was also the pilot of Oceanic Flight 815 who gets killed by the still unidentified smoke monster in ABC’s LOST. Abrams has been quoted to say that Grunberg is his “lucky charm”.

    Mmmmm i don’t know what to think.
    If there are one or two cameos from some collegues i prefered to be in costumes or with helmets, in a very very very minor roles.
    More tan 3 cameos would be a party, probably distracting, not a SW film.

      Like in Episode I with Warwick Davis and Samuel L. Jackson (he gets more relevance in the next movies, but in TPM I consider it just a cameo)?
      Or Ahmed Best and Anthony Daniels in Episode II?
      Or George Lucas himself and all his offspring en Episode III?
      Most of the crew who worked on the PT did a cameo on it. I think they did it too in the OT, but at a lesser extent. Then again, they were complete strangers to the public, nobody noticed it.
      I can stand several cameos, even from well known people (and so far, the only person I know that “announced” a cameo is Simon Pegg; I did’t even have heard of this Greg Grunberg until today) as long as they are not a blatant “hey, look at me” thing

        If the general public didn’t know any of these crew members, then they were just extras, not cameos. And so it’s perfectly normal, because every film obviously has need for extras.
