There's a lot of secrecy surrounding director
And he has very specific talents he made sure to display in case Abrams happened to be watching.
Talent 1: He can re-create Jabba the Hutt's death scene from "Return of the Jedi" with spooky accuracy, flapping tongue and all.
Talent 2: Though he's done it on "Conan" before, he can re-create the look and sound of a dying tauntaun as seen in "The Empire Strikes Back."
Will there be an opening for a dying tauntaun or a dying Jabba the Hutt in the next "Star Wars" movie? Who knows? Stranger things have happened.
And if there is an opening, then it would be a crime if Bill Hader didn't get at least one of those spots. After all, he's been working on that Jabba the Hutt impression since age 3.
