Faces of Boba Fett guests announced

Sorry for the delay in the update but between work and attending Star Wars Weekends 2010.

The official C5 site updated with the announcement that two faces behind the mask of Boba Fett will be making an appearance at C5

Dickey Beer and Jeremy Bulloch

Dickey Beer will make a first-time Celebration appearance, and will be available in the Autograph Hall run by Official Pix, Lucasfilm’s licensee for official photographs and signatures.

Beer has a wealth of behind the scenes stories, including of the many roles he performed in Return of the Jedi. On the skiff in the Sarlacc pit scene alone he performed stunts for both the Boba Fett and Luke Skywalker characters, essentially fighting himself in one scene. Beer’s busy career in stunts, stunt coordination, and production includes roles in Terminator 3, Hancock, and Pineapple Express.

Jeremy Bulloch, the actor behind one of the most famous helmets of the Star Wars Saga, will appear at Star Wars Celebration V this August, greeting fans and signing in the Autograph Hall. Bulloch, always entertaining and personable, is scheduled to appear on stage for interview and question & answer time as well.

While he might be known best for his role as the bounty hunter Boba Fett — the fan-favorite character that is the “face” of Celebration V in the show’s logo — Bulloch has also had some face time of his own in the movies, portraying Captain Colton in Revenge of the Sith, and Lieutenant Sheckil in The Empire Strikes Back. He is well-loved by fans at his Star Wars appearances.

Outside of the galaxy far, far away, Bulloch’s extensive television and movie credits include roles in “Doctor Who,” “Robin of Sherwood,” and three James Bond movies.
