JJ Abrams and Chewbacca take Twizzler challenge on Jimmy Kimmel

As the director of the new Star Wars movie, J.J. Abrams is pretty busy. But he also does a lot for charity. When Jimmy Kimmel challenged him and Chewbacca to take the Twizzler Challenge, he accepted.

Just like that infamous scene in The Lady and the Tramp J.J. and Chewie each bit the end of a Twizzler and ate their way towards each other. Okay, J.J. did most of the eating. But Chewie did participate. In fact a bunch of his hair ended up in J.J.'s mouth causing him to spit it out and nearly choke at the end which was pretty funny.

J.J. then challenged Jennifer Aniston and Guillermo to take the challenge. Needless to say, Guillermo is pretty happy about the challenge and looking forward to twizzling with Jen. If she accepts, of course.

The stunt was part of The New York Collaborates for Autism (NYCA) Twizzler Challenge, which raises funds to support autism schools, programs and services across the country. You can learn more about the challenge and donate to the cause here. Take a look:
