Fode and Beed was a Troig Podrace announcer. Both heads acted as separate beings, with the red colored head named Fode and the green colored head named Beed. During races, Fode and Beed would provide color commentary; Fode would speak in a Basic drawl while Beed would provide information in the Huttese language.
Behind the scenes
Fode and Beed first made their appearance in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, and appeared in subsequent media related to The Phantom Menace and podracing. They were portrayed by comedians Greg Proops and Scott Capurro respectively. During pre-production attempts were made to have them appear in make-up with the rest of their bodies covered in blue-suits for compositing later. Ultimately the marriage of their live-action performances with CGI was not realistic enough and the character became fully computer generated. At that point Proops and Capurro were playing Beed and Fode respectively. The reason for the reversal of their roles remains unknown. The first Fode and Beed action figure used the original actors' faces.
