Simon Pegg to Voice Dengar in Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Michael ‘MPsy’ here…

Alright folks…I just had a geekgasm! Brit zombie smasher and Hot Fuzz police offer Simon Pegg will be voicing cyborg bounty hunter Dengar in the animated ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘ tonight! For those unfamilar with Dengar, he is one of the bounty hunters whom Darth Vader enlists to hunt down the Millennium Falcon in the original trilogy film ‘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.”

So true Pegg…so true. In this new episode entitled ‘Bounty’ we see Dengar teaming up with Boba Fett, Bossk, and Asajj Ventress on a job to protect an important shipment being sent through the interior of a planet via hover rail. We’re pretty sure something is going to happen that causes their mission to go a little bit…sideways.
