Boba Fett

Fictional Villain

Born: 1978
Birthplace: The Movies
Best known as:

The Star Wars bad guy in the T-shaped visor

Bounty hunter Boba Fett is a popular villain in the long-running Star Wars movie saga created by George Lucas. Fett's first film appearance was in The Empire Strikes Back (1980), where he helped nefarious Darth Vader capture Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and then claimed Solo's frozen body for transport to the lair of Jabba the Hutt. Fett wears a jet backpack and a battered green helmet with a distinctive T-shaped visor. Though his movie screen time is rather small, Boba Fett has played a larger role in the novels and comics spawned by the Star Wars films.

Extra credit:

Boba Fett was originally played by actor Jeremy Bulloch... Young Boba Fett is played by actor Daniel Logan in Attack of the Clones (2002)... The same movie introduces Jango Fett (played by Temuera Morrison), from whom Boba Fett was cloned... Fett made a brief apperance in the Star Wars Holiday Special (1978).
