Sam Witwer is Darth Maul

Sam_WitwerAccording to Nuke The Fridge,  when Darth Maul returns in the animated STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS on Cartoon Network, he’ll be voiced by a familar genre actor.
Sam Witwer (SMALLVILLE’s Doomsday), and currently the vampiric star of SyFy’s take on the UK supernatural drama BEING HUMAN. will take on the role of the popular character of  Darth Sidious’ apprentice—who seemed to be pretty much indisputably dead, cut in half and the two parts fallen down a power shaft in THE PHANTOM MENACE.
Witwer has also appeared in the Steven King movie THE MIST, and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. In the STAR WARS universe he’s provided voices for THE CLONE WARS and the video games THE FORCE UNLEASHED (Starkiller) and STAR WARS: THE ULTIMATE SITH EDITION.

'Star Wars' TV Series On Hold

StarWarsTVMaking it’s way just now across the internet are remarks from George Lucas from May, indicating that his proposed STAR WARS TV series is on indefinite stand-by.

“The live action TV show is kind of on hold because we have scripts, but we don’t know how to do ’em. Because, they literally are STAR WARS, only we’re going to have to try to do them…a tenth the cost. And, it’s a huge challenge…lot bigger than what we thought it was gonna be.”

The statement was made to a select group of viewers at a 30th Anniversary screening of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK held at Chicago’s Field Museum.
As I recall, back when the series was first announced, George Lucas and Co. said they planned to shoot the series using mostly off-the-shelf high end “prosumer” 24P video cameras, equipment, and software. One must imagine that Lucas has backed away from that idea, appealing as it might be to his indie-filmmaker sensiblities.
Lucas also said at the function that he wasn’t going to make a a seventh STAR WARS live action film, suggesting that the questioner watch the GGI CLONE WARS.
