Boba Fett’s Book Features Hollywood’s Busiest Actor


LaMarr is an in-demand artist, and the team behind “The Book of Boba Fett” should consider themselves lucky to have been able to nab such talent. We play a game at my house called “Is that you, Phil LaMarr?” where we’re trying to figure out if a character’s voice actor is Phil LaMarr, or someone trying to capture his similar style. Nine out of 10 times it’s actually Phil LaMarr, but just in case the voice actor is not Phil LaMarr, this is a great way to learn more about some of the most underrated artists in the business. Disney, Pixar, DC, Marvel, Hanna-Barbera, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and more have all been enhanced by LaMarr’s work on their shows.

The decorated actor is fairly identifiable as a live performer, but his voiceover work is what made him an icon. He’s the titular “Samurai Jack” and “Static Shock,” Green Lantern on the animated “Justice League,” Ollie Williams the weatherman on “Family Guy,” and like, 500 other things. However, one of his biggest claims to fame is voicing Jamaican bureaucrat and Planet Express accountant Hermes Conrad on “Futurama.” For seven seasons and four movies, LaMarr has dealt with intergalactic alien and human hijinks, so becoming a Pyke boss is absolutely in his wheelhouse. The Pykes seem to play a major role in “The Book of Boba Fett,” so there’s a strong chance we’ll see more of LaMarr throughout the season. In case we don’t, we have over 500 other options for even more fun.
