Jeremy Bulloch (born February 16, 1945) is producer Robert Watts's half-brother. Bulloch played Boba Fett for most of The Empire Strikes Back and all of Return of the Jedi. The actual voice of Boba Fett, however—before being replaced with Temuera Morrison's in the Special Edition DVD—was Jason Wingreen.

He also played the role of Lieutenant Sheckil, an Imperial officer seen escorting Princess Leia Organa, Chewbacca, and Lando Calrissian through the corridors of Cloud City just after Luke Skywalker's arrival for his showdown with Darth Vader.

Bulloch later returned for a cameo as Captain Jeremoch Colton piloting the Sundered Heart in Revenge of the Sith.

Jeremy joined David Prowse, Michael Sheard and Orli Shoshan in UK fanfilms Order of the Sith: Vengeance, and its sequel Downfall. Jeremy played the father and commanding officer of the main character, Fuser Marucs. The films were made in support of Save the Children.

He was kind enough to make a cameo as himself, a convention attendee, in the Paducah Imperials FanForce feature length fan film Star Wars Fanboy, ironically muttering the words of Han Solo from Return of the Jedi, "Boba Fett, where?"

Bulloch is also best known to sci-fi fans for appearing twice in Doctor Who in the stories The Space Museum (1965) and The Time Warrior (1974). He was also featured in the documentry Beginning the End about the making of the story The Time Warrior which was part of The Time Warrior DVD.

Behind the scenesEdit

When Jeremy Bulloch's son saw The Empire Strikes Back, his only comment was "Daddy, why were you wearing a bucket on your head?" Hence the web documentary on Jango Fett was called "Bucket Head."

The reason why Jeremy Bulloch played the Imperial officer was due to the original actor being unable to perform for the minor role.

According to what Jeremy Bulloch declared in an interview, the famous line (from The Empire Strikes Back) Boba Fett growls, watching a pair of Stormtroopers loading Han Solo on the Slave I, gave him a few problems: although Fett says "Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold" on-screen, Bulloch recalls actually saying "Put Captain cargo in the Solo hold" during that take.[1]
