Recently, he posted a great video of Jason Momoa doing his best Wookiee impression and Suotamo's latest celebrity post features Simon Pegg. While Pegg is best known for appearing in films such as Shaun of the Dead and Star Trek, the actor was also featured in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as Unkar Plutt.

“Great running into @simonpegg again at the TROS premiere, although we did have a chat about the unnecessary modifications that Unkar Plutt made to the Millennium Falcon 😬😉 #StarWars,” Suotamo tweeted.

Suotamo is referring to the fact that Unbar Plutt added a compressor to the Millennium Falcon, which “puts too much stress on the hyperdrive.”
