He's known as JJ Abram's lucky charm which stems from the fact they were childhood buddies and since then JJ has given Greg roles in most of his projects, albeit his lesser known works - Lost, Star Trek, Star Wars.

Intrigued by the headlines declaring Star Wars record-breaking figures (more than $1 billion and counting worldwide), I took myself off to see the film at my local cinema. I wish I hadn't bothered and saved myself ten pounds. What's more, I now have no intention of seeing any more instalments in the franchise, nor will I pay to see another movie by director JJ Abrams after this.

Star Wars surpasses genre and transcends viewing age. It is not a children's film. It's an adult film that happens to be suitable for children. As a result, it doesn't patronise children, nor does it attempt to second-guess what kids will find interesting and entertaining.
