Greg Grunberg Says He Has A Role In Star Wars: Episode VII

13 September 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lens flares and frustrating “mystery boxes” aren’t the only things that constantly pop up in the filmography of J.J. Abrams. Another thing that appears quite often is Heroes and Masters of Sex actor Greg Grunberg, a childhood friend of Abrams’ who has shown up in almost all of the director’s cinematic works to date.

He’s had roles in Felicity and Alias, played Oceanic Flight 815 pilot Seth Norris in the Lost pilot, is in Mission: Impossible III, and even has small cameos in both Super 8 and Star Trek. He was, however, noticeably absent from Star Trek Into Darkness, which wasn’t very well received by fans…. That can’t be a coincidence, can it?!

Now it looks like the working relationship between Abrams and Grunberg will extend beyond our galaxy and into a famous one far, far away, as according to Grunberg himself, he has a role »

Jj Abrams regular Greg Grunberg to have Star Wars Episode 7 role

13 September 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Greg Grunberg has joined the cast of Jj Abrams' Stars Wars Episode VII.

The Heroes actor confirmed the news in response to a fan on Twitter.

Grunberg posted: "Yes @smgulz it Is safe to assume I have a role in #StarWarsEpisodeVII - If I say more than that, Jj will have me killed."

Grunberg and Abrams are childhood friends who used to make home videos together.

The actor has since popped up in many of Abrams's productions including Felicity, Alias and Star Trek.

Earlier this month, Star Wars Episode VII cast Game of Thrones actor Miltos Yerolemou.

Both Grunberg and Yerolemou will be joining previously cast Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong'o, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, Gwendoline Christie, John Boyega, Max von Sydow and Daisy Ridley.

Original Star Wars actors will also be featured in the film, including Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew. »

The Last Sci-fi Blog: The Rules We Hope 'Star Trek 3' Will Follow

13 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

With Star Wars: Episode VII stealing all of the headlines for the past year or so, things have been awful quiet on the Star Trek 3 front. We know that franchise writer Roberto Orci is taking over the director's chair from J.J. Abrams, but that's really about it. We don't even have a proper release date, which is just plain weird for a major motion picture in the 21st century. Since everyone knows so little, it's only appropriate for the fans to wish and hope that Star Trek 3 course corrects after the last film. So, without further ado, here is the Last Sci-fi Blog's Star Trek 3 Wish List of Things That Need to Be Considered for the New Movie.   Boldly Go Until the most recent movies, almost every single Star Trek movie and TV series were about...

J.J. Abrams Casts Greg Grunberg in Star Wars: Episode VII

12 September 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Hey look! It's Star Wars news the doesn't include set photos! J.J. Abrams and Greg Grunberg (Heroes) have a long history together. The two are childhood friends who made home movies together in the late seventies. That grew into a professional relationship and Abrams cast him in Felicity, Alias, and a TV pilot called The Catch. As far as films go, the actor had a small role in MIssion: Impossible III, he provided the voice of Kirk's stepdad in Star Trek, was a TV actor in the background of Super 8, and now he's going to show up in Star Wars: Episode VII. Grunberg confirmed the news himself on Twitter saying:

"Yes @smgulz it Is safe to assume I have a role in #StarWarsEpisodeVII - If I say more than that, Jj will have me killed."

It's also safe to assume that Grunberg's role won't be a big one. It's »

"Star Wars" Gets Familiar Faces & Setting?

12 September 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Greg Grunberg is teaming up with his childhood friend J.J. Abrams again, the former dropping a tweet indicating that he's set to have a cameo in the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII".

Grunberg has been with Abrams for sometime. He was a regular on the Abrams-produced "Felicity" and "Alias," had a cameo as the pilot of the ill-fated Oceanic Flight 815 in "Lost," and had small appearances in "Mission: Impossible III," "Super 8" and even "Star Trek" (he was the voice of James Kirk's stepfather). Here's his tweet:

Yes @smgulz it Is safe to assume I have a role in #StarWarsEpisodeVII - If I say more than that, Jj will have me killed.

Greg Grunberg (@greggrunberg) September 11, 2014

Onto today's speculative rumors. It is safe to assume that planetary locations from the original "Star Wars" trilogy are set to be revisited in the upcoming films.

'Star Wars 7' Casts J.J. Abrams Regular Greg Grunberg

12 September 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Longtime fans of director J.J. Abrams will likely know that he casts his old childhood friend Greg Grunberg in most of his movies and TV shows. Many have wondered whether or not the actor will appear in the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII, which is currently in production, but now that speculation can be put to rest.

Earlier today, Greg Grunberg confirmed on his Twitter page that he does, in fact, have a role in Star Wars: Episode VII, although he naturally wouldn't give any details about who he is playing.

So my pal #JJAbrams says the good word is Apostrophe

Greg Grunberg (@greggrunberg) September 11, 2014

Yes @smgulz it Is safe to assume I have a role in #StarWarsEpisodeVII - If I say more than that, Jj will have me killed.

J.J. Abrams casts his pal Greg Grunberg in Star Wars: Episode VII

12 September 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like J.J. Abrams has cast his childhood pal Greg Gunberg in the eagerly-anticipated sequel Star Wars: Episode VII, with the Heroes and Masters of Sex star taking to Twitter to reveal that he has a role in the film, stating that, “If I say more than that, Jj will have me killed.” The two have worked together extensively in the past, with Grunberg featuing in Felicity and Alias, as well as appearing in minor roles in Lost, Mission: Impossible III, Star Trek and Super 8. Presumably, his part in Episode VII will follow suit, and is likely little more than a cameo.

Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release on December 18th 2015 and sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis »

Yoav Goren, Immediate Music

12 September 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The work of Yoav Goren has been featured in movie trailers for The Wolverine, Rush, 47 Ronin and Star Trek: Into Darkness among many others. On September 12, Goren gives a talk entitled Trailer Music: New Trends/ Modern Techniques at the Production Music Conference in Los Angeles.

The Emmy-winning composer and producer and co-founder of Immediate Music talks to Elbert Wyche about the formation of his company, the oft-misunderstood trailer music industry and the creative process of scoring movie trailers.

Tell me a little about your start in the industry and how it led to the formation of your company Immediate Music.

We have to go back a little over 20 years to get to the beginning of the story. I was working at a music store in Santa Monica and one of my regular clients was a composer who I got friendly with. We discovered we liked the same kind of music, which is the »

12 September 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

As if you needed another reason to love Sir Patrick Stewart... Dawn Garrigus, a young Star Trek fan from Georgia who suffers from a life-threatening disease, wanted to attend Dragon Con 2014 in Atlanta about two weeks ago and the Make-a-Wish foundation made it so...and took it a step further. The organization's Georgia branch arranged to have the little girl and her family attend the fan convention, where she was surprised with a one-on-one meeting with none other than Stewart, who played Captain Picard in the series Star Trek: The Next Generation and its related movies, The Huffington Post reported.

'The Tick' Reboot Will Be Darker, Edgier and All-New | Exclusive

12 September 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, The Tick creator Ben Edlund confirmed that a reboot is in the works, which will likely debut on Amazon. No one involved with the project can say too much about it at the moment. But Patrick Warburton did chat with us about the possible return of everyone's favorite big blue superhero, whose live-action series ran just 9 episodes before being cancelled by Fox in 2002.

Unable to provide any substantial plot details, Patrick Warburton tells us that the show will be darker and edgier than the original. Creator Ben Edlund has a new take on the show, which will utilize some of the VFX and CGI that wasn't available 12 years ago.

Patrick Warburton is currently celebrating the return of his 1999 cult classic Hollywood noir The Woman Chaser as it premieres on Netflix September 20th. We took the opportunity to ask if any other original cast members will be back for the new Tick. »

Watch ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Gag Reel

12 September 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With the release of the Star Trek: The Compendium in the USA, that includes Jj AbramsStar Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-Ray, they’ve shared this rather entertaining gag reel from the latter – and as always with these there’s a lot of fun to be had.

I don’t know why we love watching things go so terrible wrong in dramatic moments but maybe it’s because we feel we’d never be able to keep a straight face when chasing Khan through a starship, you know, as you do. In this quick selection of clips, you get some Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and our favourite Brit Benedict Cumberbatch having a moment, check it out below:

Sure there’s only been the two new films so far, but that Star Trek: The Compendium still looks impressive and if you wanted »

Revisiting Star Trek Tng: Best Of Both Worlds

12 September 2014 1:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James' Star Trek Tng season 3 look-backs conclude with a justifiable classic: Best Of Both Worlds...

This review contains spoilers.

3.26 Best Of Both Worlds

The Enterprise arrives at Jouret IV to respond to a distress call. Unfortunately, once they arrive, they find that there's a smouldering crater where the colony used to be. Has O'Brien made another mistake with the co-ordinates, they wonder? But no, to their astonishment, he was correct. The colony Is gone. And Starfleet thinks the Borg is responsible.

With this in mind, Starfleet dispatches chief desk-jockey Admiral Hanson and Borg tactical specialist Lieutenant Commander Shelby to the Enterprise. Apparently it's been her job to figure out ways to defeat the inevitable Borg attack (she's presumably well-positioned to do so having never seen a Borg, much less fought one. This might explain why they later admit all their Borg super-weapons are 18 months from being finished.)

Shelby and Riker are dismissed, »

Tiff: Douglas Trumbull screens 'Ufotog,' makes case for immersive filmmaking

11 September 2014 7:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Filmmaker and legendary special-effects guru Douglas Trumbull gave a special demonstration at the Toronto Film Festival, screening 10 minutes of Ufotog, his high-intensity, 3-D immersive work-in-progress that he filmed at 120 frames per second. Most Hollywood movies are filmed and projected at 24 frames per second, the industry standard for almost 100 years, even though digital camera and projector technology has opened the door for much greater speeds. In 2012, Peter Jackson filmed The Hobbit at 48 frames per second—and though the film grossed more than a billion around the globe, many viewers flinched at the film’s “soap-opera” look.

Alex Kurtzman Discusses a "Much Darker" Venom

11 September 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Star Trek co-writer Alex Kurtzman is currently developing a Venom movie for Sony Pictures that he will direct. Venom is a crazy and cool character and one of my favorites in Spider-Man's universe. I like his dark personality and what he brings to the stories that he's in. Kurtzman discusses this stuff in a recent interview with MTV, and talks about why he wanted to work with the character.

"Well, Venom is sort of the flip side in that there are certain lines that Spider-Man won’t cross because he’s Peter Parker and Peter Parker will only do certain things and Venom is an entirely different character. Venom, in a weird way, is the representation of every line that will get crossed. He’s a much darker character. I wouldn’t even really say more complicated because I think they’re both very complicated characters, but I think »

Watch: 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Gag Reel Full of Cast Flubs & Dancing

11 September 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For some reason, with only two films in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, someone at Paramount Pictures decided it was a good time to release Star Trek: The Compendium. Since it only has Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-Ray along with a whole slew of extras for each film, we're not sure that we'd call that a compendium, but whatever. The good thing to come out of it are some unseen extras from the sci-fi sequel from J.J. Abrams, including a hilarious gag reel featuring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and even Benedict Cumberbatch making the most of their movie mistakes. Watch below! Check out the gag reel teaser for Star Trek Into Darkness found on YouTube (via SlashFilm): Star Trek: The Compendium is available for purchase right now and includes Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-Ray along with digital »

Chris Pine Gets Naughty with Benedict Cumberbatch in 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Gag Reel

11 September 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I have anything but fond memories of the 2013 Star Trek sequel Star Trek Into Darkness and those memories grow increasingly negative with each passing day as I hope Roberto Orci can turn things around with Star Trek 3 in 2016. However, I'm always up for a good gag reel and one has just arrived for Into Darkness after just being released on the new Star Trek: The Compendium DVD and Blu-ray bringing the first two J.J. Abrams' directed Star Trek feature into one release with new features. The blooper reel runs nearly six minutes long and has more than enough goofs to go around. via Slashfilm yt id="BzUpOP_IwfA" width="500" »
