Boba Fett is Star Wars’ most infamous bounty hunter.
Introduced in The Star Wars Holiday Special and made his big screen debut in The Empire Strikes Back, the character left his mark on the franchise. Many actors have stepped into his armor or voiced him over the years. Here are all the actors who have played Boba Fett.
1. Don Francks and Gabriel Dell
It’s intriguing that after all these years, fans don’t know who initially voiced the infamous bounty hunter during his first appearance in the Star Wars Holiday Special. The role was uncredited then, and the conflicting reports point toward either Don Francks or Gabriel Dell.
While Dell was a prominent actor in his own right, Francks tends to receive credit because he was the voice of Boba in Star Wars: Droids. Until we get an official confirmation, the actor who first played Boba Fett is a mystery.
2. Jeremy Bulloch
Despite a storied career in film and television, including the James Bond franchise, Robin of Sherwood, and Doctor Who, Jeremy Bulloch is best known for playing Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Bulloch found himself in the movie thanks to his half-brother, Robert Watts, who was an associate producer for the film.
Watts was tasked to find someone who could fit in the Boba Fett armor and called Bulloch, who made the costume fitting. Channeling Clint Eastwood’s character from Man with No Name, Bulloch became an instant fan favorite.
3. Jason Wingreen
After serving in the Air Force during World War II, Jason Wingreen fully jumped into acting and co-founded Circle in the Square Theatre in New York’s Greenwich Village. He is best known for his recurring role as Harry Snowden in All in the Family and the follow-up series Archie Bunker’s Place. Wingreen provided the voice for Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back.
After 2004, Wingreen’s voice was replaced by Temuera Morrison to tie into the Prequel Trilogy. Despite that, playing Boba Fett changed Wingreen’s life as Entertainment Weekly featured a quote from him in his obituary, saying: “I’ve signed a lot of photos of Boba Fett. I was living a quiet, peaceful, unencumbered life until that news broke, and when the news came out in a Star Wars magazine, for which I’d done an interview, the letters just never stopped.”
4. Alan Rosenberg
Alan Rosenberg voiced Boba Fett in 1983’s The Empire Strikes Back radio dramatization produced by National Public Radio as part of the NPR Playhouse. As a prominent television actor, Rosenberg received an Emmy nomination for his guest role on ER.
His other roles include Civil Wars and L.A. Law, and Rosenberg was also the president of the Screen Actors Guild from 2005 to 2009. One fun fact, his first cousin is Donald Fagen, the co-founder of the rock group Steely Dan.
5. Ed Begley Jr.
Taking over the role of Boba Fett from Alan Rosenberg, Ed. Begley Jr. voiced the bounty hunter in the NPR radio dramatization for 1996’s Return of the Jedi. Along with his work as an environmentalist, Begley Jr. has appeared in hundreds of movies and television shows.
