I am kind of sad that JJ and his crew need to draw inspiration from TDK.

Why?
Because Abrams and his posse are fans of TDK and this is their way of paying tribute.

Re: What's up with Weller's character?

Since Peter Weller doesn't seem to get many lead roles in big releases, I don't suspect he'll be around for the next movie after stId, unless the minor role continues.

I'm getting the feeling that he may have a small role screen time wise, but it may be an important role plot-wise. So in that sense, his role may not be "minor", even if it is short.

I have nothing to back that up, of course. It's just a feeling.

Or go straight from performing neurosurgery to playing a rock gig at a club, while spouting off philosophical ideas.
