Jon Hamm is joining the "Star Wars" family as this classic character
Another A-list actor is joining the Star Wars franchise. And no, he won’t be appearing in The Last Jedi (that we know of).
Lucasfilm just announced that Jon Hamm will read the part of Boba Fett in the upcoming audiobook From a Certain Point of View. The book, which will be released on October 3rd, celebrates the 40th anniversary of the franchise by telling 40 stories from the perspectives of background and supporting characters in the galaxy far, far away.
The Mad Men star will be joined by Neil Patrick Harris (!!!), Daniel José Older, Saskia Maarleveld, Jonathan Davis, Carol Monda, January LaVoy, and Star Wars alums Ashley Eckstein, Janina Gavankar, and Marc Thompson.
* You can say that again, Han! *
Producers Nick Martorelli and Aaron Blank understood that the audiobook was quite the undertaking.
But they revealed to StarWars.com that they wanted these unknown stories to be brought to life.
From a Certain Point of View features stories from all over the Star Wars universe.
The book is written by more than 40 authors, including Meg Cabot, Wil Wheaton, and Gary Whitta. We’re so excited to not only read about the supporting characters, but also to be able to hear their stories brought to life.
From a Certain Point of View will be released in hard copy, e-book, and audiobook form on October 3rd.
