Simon Pegg is giving Christopher Lee and Julian Glover a run for their money as an all-time franchise hopper. That’s because the Mission: Impossible and Star Trek star is finally set to make his trip to that Galaxy Far, Far Away. This Friday on Star Wars: The Clone Wars (check out our recaps here!), he’s playing Dengar, one of the bounty hunters that Darth Vader summons to track down the Millennium Falcon in The Empire Strikes Back.
“Dengar is one of the elite,” Pegg tells EW. “If you’re on Darth Vader’s bounty-hunter speed dial, you are the best in the galaxy.” Sure, we only see Dengar for the briefest of moments in the movie, but like IG-88, Bossk, or Zuckuss, the mummy-wrapped bounty hunter has accumulated a massive cult following over the years. Not to mention one amazing Robot Chicken parody. EW’s got your very first look at Dengar in action. Check out the clip from this Friday’s episode, “Bounty,” after the break: READ FULL STORY
