Star Trek veteran George Takei has jumped ship and will voice a role in STAR WARS TV spin-off THE CLONE WARS.
The Heroes actor and British reality TV star will portray nuclear warlord Lok Durd in an upcoming episode of the animated sci-fi series.
And, again, the skinny star is playing an overweight character.
He tells TV Guide magazine, "I was cast as a grotesquely obese guy in Disney's Mulan, and now again in Clone Wars.
"I just love the way the new (George) Lucas animation technology makes my fat jiggle."
