According to Digital Spy the star of television shows such as ‘Alias’ and ‘Heroes’ confirmed that he’d be a part of the new film when a fan asked him about it 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.”
