On-screen father and son duo, Temuera Morrison and Daniel Logan, reunited during a television spot last week to promote Con Nooga – an entertainment convention based out of Chattanooga, Tenn.
During their appearance on WDEF News 12, Morrison was asked about his thoughts on the rumored Boba Fett spin-off film. Morrison, who lives in New Zealand, started by saying he loves the opportunity to attend conventions state-side, because it gives him a chance to see his son (read, Daniel Logan.)
Morrison said when he heard Disney had bought Lucasfilm, that he figured this was a good time to show his face around. It was noted that Morrison’s age falls in line with how old Fett would be post-Return of the Jedi.
He also said he’s seen fans lobby for him to play the role of Boba Fett in new movies through social networking sites. The primary reason being Boba was a clone of Jango, so of course he’d look like his father.
It should be noted though, this isn’t necessary a requirement. In the comics, such as Twin Engines of Destruction, Boba Fett is shown to have his face scarred and destroyed by the digestive acids of the Sarlacc. Therefore, in theory, any actor could play the bounty hunter – since their face would be disfigured, not having to resemble Morrison’s likeness from Attack of the Clones.
