“I got to go out to the 'Star Wars' set recently, because a lot of my friends are working on it crew-wise,“ he explained in a recent interview. "I might have been Harrison Ford's worst nightmare, because I'm like, 'Those movie are so cool, man.' Like I've just heard about them. I admitted that to J.J. Abrams as well, and he looked at me like he maybe wanted to kill me for a second. They were very nice."
