Shortly after Disney bought Lucasfilm and announced plans for three new Star Wars movies, the original trilogy's stars were approached about their involvement. Not by Disney.as far as we know.but certainly by the press. First came word that Harrison Ford, who made vests look macho as Han Solo, would possibly be interested in returning the franchise. And now his onscreen lady love Carrie Fisher as well as Jeremy Bulloch, who played fan favorite Boba Fett in Episodes V and VI, have affirmed they would each be happy to return to a galaxy far far away. TMZ caught up with Fisher earlier this week at the Los Angeles International Airport, and took the opportunity to ask her how she felt about being a Disney princess ("Fantastic, [it] made my day") and whether or not she'd consider a role in the upcoming trilogy, to which she responded matter-of-factly, "Yes, sure. »
Following Disney's acquisition of LucasFilm last week, speculation has been running rampant ever since as to which of the actors from the original Star Wars trilogy may reprise their roles in 2015's Episode VII. We've already heard from a few of the core cast members, but Unleash The Fanboy managed to catch up with Jeremy Bullock (a.k.a. Boba Fett) to ask him whether or not he would be interested in making a return as the iconic bounty hunter. "It would be lovely to see Boba Fett back!" he told the site. "The technology now exists to make his jet pack even more realistic and exciting. I'm sure if Boba Fett were to return they would go with someone younger, but I’m still fit and can jump around. I’d love to be involved in some way, maybe a cameo as an ageing Bounty Hunter in the corner somewhere. »
Darth Vader may wear all black, the Emperor may be able to shoot lightening out of his fingers, and Darth Maul may have a bitchin’ double lightsaber, but the biggest badass in the Star Wars universe will always be the notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett. It’s hard to explain just what it is that makes Boba Fett so freakin’ cool, so we asked the three men who played the majority of scenes as the man of few words but many kills to do it for us. That’s right, as part of EW’s new Reunions issue, we brought »

On their first full-length, Wild Cub sound much more experienced than one would expect a band that has been together just under a year to, as the duo officially came together last November. But a quick peek at their collective resume quickly explains that away: Nashville music veteran Jeremy Bullock has worked with the likes of Madi Diaz and Pico vs. Island Trees, while Keegan DeWitt previously scored films in addition to his solo career. The album also sounds startlingly more hi-fi than a record put together in the makeshift studio in Bullock’s home would suggest, but on Youth, that »
