Greg Grunberg appears in pal JJ Abrams' 'Super 8'

Greg Grunberg is revealing that he has a small role in "Super 8," the latest film from his longtime friend J.J. Abrams.

Grunberg previously said only that he'd beg for a part in the film. But he told The Associated Press on Wednesday that people will have to "really, really search to find me" as he portrays a sitcom actor in "Super 8."

Grunberg and Abrams have been friends since kindergarten. Grunberg starred in Abrams' home movies growing up and has appeared in most of his professional films and TV shows, including "Felicity," "Alias," "Lost" and "Star Trek."

Grunberg says of Abrams: "He calls me his lucky charm."

Grunberg stars in the comedy "Love Bites," which premieres on NBC Thursday at 10 p.m. Eastern.
