Greg Grunberg played X-Wing pilot Snap Wexley in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and though he didn’t make an appearance in The Last Jedi, Snap is set to come back for The Rise of Skywalker. We barely got to see Grunberg in the final trailer, but he’s posted up this fun video of him building the LEGO kit for Snap’s A-Wing.
Check him out:
Just in case you didn’t know, Grunberg is actually good friends with J.J. Abrams, and it’s said that they’ve known each other since kindergarten. Grunberg has appeared in most of Abrams’ projects besides Star Wars, having appeared in Star Trek, Lost, Alias, and a lot more. Hopefully, Abrams plans to give Grunberg a bigger spotlight for TROS. I’m honestly kind of bummed he isn’t piloting an X-Wing though.
As for the character of Snap Wexley, a lot of fans kind of treat him as a mix between Wedge Antilles and Jek Porkins. He could be a bit on the hefty side, but he’s still an ace pilot who can keep up with the likes of Poe Dameron. Snap was said to have been away on a mission by the time TLJ rolled out, so maybe this time he’s back working with the Resistance, and more important as ever.
