Join EW.com tonight for a live chat with Star Wars: The Clone Wars star James Arnold Taylor, who will take your questions on viEWer from 7:45 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. ET and provide running commentary for tonight’s episode.
James is best known to Clone Wars fans for voicing the animated incarnation of Obi-Wan Kenobi for both the hand-drawn and CGI incarnations of the series, as well as in numerous Star Wars videogames. And, by the Force, has this ever been a doozy of an arc for Obi-Wan on The Clone Wars or what?
Last week, he faked his own death and assumed the tattooed form of chrome-domed bounty-hunter Rako Hardeen — all the better to infiltrate a Republic prison and earn the trust of a baddie hoping to kidnap Chancellor Palpatine. Little did he know that he’d have to contend with fearsome Duros gunslinger Cad Bane, as well. Tonight finds “Hardeen” on the run on Nal Hutta, trying to evade a Dark Side-brimming Anakin, who thinks he killed Obi-Wan Kenobi. Basically, there are about as many cases of mistaken identity here this side of Revenge or Ringer.James Arnold Taylor has really outdone himself with his vocal acrobatics for Obi-Wan/Hardeen, on top of the usual challenge of finding a voice that’s part Alec Guinness, part Ewan McGregor. He also voices Plo Koon on the show and is the current voice of Fred Flintstone as well as Cartoon Network’s Johnny Test.
Have your questions ready for the start of our live chat at 7:45, and be sure to catch up on all things Clone Wars with EW’s weekly recaps.
