JJ Abrams and R2-D2 Make an Appearance on 'Last Week Tonight' From the Set of 'The Force Awakens'

By: Dominic Jones

Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams made a surprise appearance, alongside R2-D2, on last night's episode of HBOs news/comedy program Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.  The two appeared when host John Oliver was testing out his new Salmon Canon (yes, that is really a thing) by firing it at various celebrities.  Of course, a pair of salmon made their way to Pinewood Studios (among many, many other locations) where they found their targets on the set of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Check out the hilarious video below,

That was very cool of Abrams and R2 to appear in the video.  Absolutely hilarious!
