Outstanding, brilliant, gracious. Jeremy Bulloch, who will appear in Episode III as the captain of a Rebel ship, worked with filmmakers this year for an independent feature, Number One, Longing. Number Two, Regret, and Star Wars short, Order of the Sith.
Neil Wassell’s project, Number One…, features “Fett,” played by Jeremy Bulloch, which the production company web site, in its thrilling neo-noir thematic blue and black, highlights as Detective Fett driving to the scene in his “5LAVE 1”-plated Porsche.
When police arrest a man for questioning over his neighbour’s murder, investigating cop Beatrice Kenosha (Jenny Agutter) enters a period of dark fascination with the mysterious stranger and his entangled, suppressed past – but only after he escapes her custody.
Order of the Sith features Jeremy Bulloch, Dave Prowse (Darth Vader) and Michael Sheard (Admiral Ozzel, Empire).
On June 22nd last year, the project led by filmmaker Marcus came to Jeremy Bulloch’s home turf in London to discuss and hopefully shoot the greenscreen scene. Despite being an hour late and speeding along in the rain, the original Boba Fett graciously offered him a cup of tea and they got down to business. By the end of the night, it was settled and Mr. Bulloch was to be in the Star Wars fan film.
“The performance he gave was outstanding – absolutely brilliant – and it emphasised the difference between a professional of 45 years and our own acting. I was so pleased I had the biggest grin on my face.”
