Simon Pegg Guests as Dengar in The Clone Wars
Simon Pegg (of Star Trek and Shaun of the Dead) will lend his voice talents to Star Wars: The Clone Wars this week as he plays Dengar, a bounty hunter in the employ of Bobba Fett. The Dengar character is not a new character, as he was already seen accompanying Fett in The Empire Strikes Back, even though the character was not specifically named.
The episode this week is entitled “Bounty”, and has Asajj Ventress joining a team of bounty hunters after losing her life’s purpose. Said team of bounty hunters is being led by a young mandalorian named Bobba Fett. The group of bounty hunters find themselves in an alien world where they undertake a dangerous yet profitable mission that will test the limit of their skills, and the strength of Asajj’s character.
Star Wars airs at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT Friday on Cartoon Network.
