Boba Fett may not be getting the standalone movie that Star Wars fans have been hoping for, and Jon Hamm hasn't ever been given the Batman role that many DC Comics fans have been hoping for. However, it looks like both of these fan-favorites have found a way to work together.
In honor of the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, a new book is being released, giving brand new background information to the events of A New Hope. Titled Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View, the audiobook version has enlisted an all-star cast to tell the various stories of the characters that fans have come to love.
Leading the cast is Mad Men star Jon Hamm, who will voice the infamous bounty hunter, Boba Fett.
During an email interview with StarWars.com, producer Aaron Blank revealed what some of the bigger cast members will be doing for the book.
"This was a fun opportunity to do a full-cast Star Wars audiobook, which we've only been able to truly do thus far with Ian Doescher's William Shakespeare's Star Wars audiobooks because they're written as plays," Blank explained. "We got lucky this time in From A Certain Point of View with all the multiple first person points of view. In addition to multiple perspectives, short stories mean a small time commitment in the recording studio, and that enabled us to pursue some big names! We know some of these readers — like Jon Hamm (reading as Boba Fett) and Neil Patrick Harris (reading about an Imperial officer in the Death Star) — might not be available for an entire audiobook, but we were able to bring them on board for this project."
