Another name has been added to the cast! Actor Greg Gunberg (Heroes) took to Twitter yesterday and announced that he has a role in Star Wars Episode VII! Gunberg tweeted "Yes @smgulz it IS safe to assume I have a role in #StarWarsEpisodeVII - If I say more than that, JJ will have me killed."
Yes @smgulz it IS safe to assume I have a role in #StarWarsEpisodeVII - If I say more than that, JJ will have me killed.Gunberg is a childhood friend of Episode VII director JJ Abrams, so it makes sense that JJ would put him in the movie. That being said, I doubt it will a substantial role, mostly likely just a cameo.
