Jon Hamm to voice Boba Fett in upcoming 'Star Wars' audiobook
UPI News Service, 09/19/2017
Jon Hamm is set to voice fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett in an upcoming "Star Wars" audiobook that celebrates the 40th anniversary of "A New Hope."
The project titled "From a Certain Point of View," will feature stories from over 40 different authors that reimagine moments from A New Hope from the perspective of a supporting character.
Hamm joins a cast that includes Neil Patrick Harris as an Imperial Officer aboard the Death Star, Janina Gavankar who lends her voice to upcoming video game Star Wars: Battlefront II, "Clone Wars" and "Rebels" star Ashley Eckstein and author Daniel Jose Older among others, Screencrush reported.
"Since we have over 40 authors in this collection retelling different moments from 'Star Wars' literary history, we wanted to use the audiobook as an opportunity to work with an all-star cast of narrators," book producer Nick Martorelli said to StarWars.com.
"We matched our veteran 'Star Wars' narrators with stories that suited their talents, and from there we dreamed big and reached out to people who might have been interested in celebrating this landmark 40th anniversary project."
"From a Certain Point of View" will be released on Oct. 3.
