    I heard this over at the AICN talkbacks. Is it true? And do you think he'll have a big role?

    It's been confirmed, but I haven't heard about this Hand guy. Fillion's character is named Bolb Fafla and he apparently travels in a ship that has been described as 'piss yellow.'

    Nathan Fillion too? Sweet! :D Providing Leonardo diCaprio doesn't do his famed tree impression, things are looking damn good for this cast :cool:

    I hope he's not gonna be some lame-ass like Jar Jar. We don't need more slapstick comic relief!

    Maybe just an old ship from the time of the republic, perhaps a leftover cargo ship from the Clone Wars era? With a bug or another animal name? Where did he do that before? :rolleyes:

    There's a rumor that Nathan will fly a ship called the Centennial Albatross. I wonder if this is the ship that was parked outside the Senate in ROTS.

    AICN is the sword of truth.

    Hope the part is a big one - Captain Tightpants rules!

    Are you sure? I heard a source stating it was called the "Annual Penguin".

    Well, you never know with these online rumors. "Annual Penguin" does make more sense, given the huge popularity of these flightless birds.

    Does that mean that Universal might be getting the rights to Star Wars away from 20th Century Fox? Because Fillion's been doing stuff for them mainly.
