Greg Grunberg, best known for his work on “Alias” and “Heroes,” turns 49 today. His next big projects will be the new NBC series “Heroes Reborn” and in the feature film “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Grunberg worked with “The Force Awakens” director on “Alias,” “Super 8” and “Star Trek.” There was also tight security about the spy TV series and the two feature fims he made with Abrams and so Grunberg understands the kind of secrecy the director keeps around his projects.

That means no clues about his “Force Awaknes” work.

About all that’s known is that he spent six weeks in London shooting his part of the Christmas release. More will be known about his role in the film when his 50th birthday rolls around.
