Greg Grunberg who plays Snap Wexley in J. J. Abrams The Force Awakens, continues his history of cameos in his friends creations, by appearing in Abrams Spider-Man comic!
Even if readers don’t know Grunberg’s name, they will certainly know his face–as an actor, at least, and not necessarily as Abrams’s human Easter Egg, childhood friend, and ongoing good luck charm.
After playing a regular on Felicity, a CIA agent in Alias, the dying pilot on Lost, a ‘friend’ of Ethan Hunt’s in Mission: Impossible III, and the voice of Jim Kirk’s stepdad in Star Trek, Grunberg got promoted to the big time in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. His role as Temmin “Snap” Wexley, star pilot of the Resistance alongside Poe Dameron, gave him an extensive role in the Star Wars comic books and novels. And in Spider-Man #2, he makes his leap to the comic book page in Marvel’s world (albeit an alternate one in which Mary Jane was killed, and Spider-Man quit).
