The actor only had four lines of dialogue but the character has become a favorite with his own fan club.

In 2004, when director George Lucas re-released the original trilogy, Jason Wingreen’s voice was replaced by Temuera Morrison, who played Boba Fett’s father, Jango Fett, in the prequel movies.

The role of Boba Fett was physically played by Jeremy Bulloch.

Jason Wingreen also appeared in many TV series. He was a regular on The Untouchables and appeared in the original Twilight Zone and Star Trek series.
