J.J. Abrams' good luck charm Greg Grunberg reveals his 'Force Awakens' character Snap Wexley

Greg Grunberg, childhood friend of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" director J.J. Abrams, has appeared in many Abrams movies and television series, including "Felicity," "Alias," "Lost," "Mission: Impossible III" and "Star Trek," thus earning the nickname of Abrams' lucky charm. So it makes sense that Grunberg appears in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

But we didn't know he was getting his own action figure.

When you are solidified into pop culture iconography in the form of a "Star Wars" action figure, you know you've really made it. And Grunberg's children are well aware of that.

"When you get a gift for your kids and the they don't want to open the box, that's cool," he said on the red carpet for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." "They're like, 'No dad. I want to go to college. I'm not opening this.'"

Ahead of the world premiere, Grunberg, who plays Stormtrooper Snap Wexley, chatted with The Times about camping out for "Star Wars," his role and what fans should expect of the awakening force. Check out the video above.
