J.J. Abrams Thinks The Academy Diversity Issue is "Shameful"

Steve Martin looks handsome while posing for the cameras at the 2016 ACE Eddie Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Friday (January 29) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 70-year-old comedian also caught up with his Father of the Bride collaborator and writer Nancy Meyers.

Also in attendance that evening were Joy‘s director David O’Russell and Star Wars: The Force Awaken‘s director J.J. Abrams.

J.J. recently opened up to The Daily Beast regarding the Oscars diversity issue and admitted his disappointment.

“I think we all have a hell of a lot to do, and I think it is insane to me that we still have to have a conversation about inclusivity. It’s shameful,” he said.

J.J. Abrams Knows Who Rey's Parents Are in 'Star Wars'

J.J. Abrams keeps on getting asked about Star Wars: The Force Awakens despite having loads of other projects to promote and the latest info he revealed is about Rey’s secret identity.

Daisy Ridley‘s character is shrouded with secrecy in the film and the audience is not told who her parents are.

“I know quite a bit,” J.J. told reporters at the TCA Tour on Tuesday (January 12), according to EW.

“Obviously it’s not for me to talk about in this moment because this is Rian [Johnson]’s story to continue now. The last thing I’m going to do is reveal something that he would be upset about. I want to make sure that Rian gets the courtesy that he showed me,” he added.

“My enthusiasm for Episode VIII is enormous,” J.J. continued. “I’m very much excited for and very jealous of anyone, especially Rian, who gets to work so closely with this extraordinary cast and crew, truly an amazing group. In that regard for sure, but I’m also relieved to have gotten a chance to do a Star Wars movie.”

J.J. Abrams Responds to the Lack of Rey Toys for 'Star Wars'

J.J. Abrams is opening up about the outcry over the lack of Rey toys in stores for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

After fans noticed there was a lack of toys for Daisy Ridley‘s character, it was just discovered the other day that the character is not part of the new Monopoly game themed around the film.

“I wish I had more details about merchandising and the schedule,” J.J. said (via EW). “I’m learning things as you are. I will say that it seems preposterous and wrong that the main character of the movie is not well represented in what is clearly a huge piece of the Star Wars world in terms of merchandizing. […] I read that she wasn’t in the Monopoly game and was quickly making phone calls about this because if it were true — and it is true, and now Hasbro, of course, has said they’re going to put Rey in — it doesn’t quite make sense why she wouldn’t be there. She’s somewhat important in the story.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams may be having second thoughts about his decision to not direct further Star Wars sequels.

The 49-year-old director is passing off duties to Rian Johnson and Colin Trevorrow for Episodes VIII and IX respectively, but Star Wars actor Greg Grunberg says J.J. is having regrets.

Greg, who plays X-Wing pilot Snap Wexley and is a lifelong friend of J.J., says the director told him his thoughts about the new script.

“He read it and said something he never, ever says. He said, ‘It’s so good, I wish I were making it.’ He may have said something one time on Lost with Damon [Lindelof], but I never hear him express regret like that,” he told The Washington Post.
