JFace: Formatting control created by ActionContributionItem

Is there a way to format the control that is generated by the fill() method of the ActionContributionItem? I have an Action which is attached to a ActionContributionItem which in turn is displayed as a button using:

actionAci.fill(parent);

I'd like to attach a GridData object to the button widget to specify alignments and whether or not it should grab excessive space. Is this possible somehow? I haven't found a way to push through to the control as it is possible with i.e. ListViewer.getControl().
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
