Dermot Crowley - Posters of Montmarte

Dermot Crowley
Hey there,

Small break to make you aware of a radio program based on the posters of Toulouse Lautrec called The Posters of Montmartre.
Dermot Crowley (General Krix Madine - ROTJ) has a role as George Footit, an aging circus performer with an alcohol problem.

If you've never seen/heard Crowley (said Crow-lee) in anything other than Return of the Jedi then you will be a tad surprised at hearing him as Footit. I was.

The radio series on BBC 7 is played in 5 parts and plays each day. Two parts have already been broadcast.

Part One

Part Two

Here is the link for the "Listen Again" page at BBC Radio. The last three parts will be Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Enjoy!

You may be surprised especially because the voice of General Madine was performed by John Hostetter (http://www.johnhostetter.com/res-vw-dubbing.htm) and not Mr. Crowley. This is the case with many of the supporting characters in the Star Wars films who were played by British actors. Thanks for the links!

You're very welcome, only too glad to share.

Yes, of course, that explains so much. Especially since Mr. Crowley is from Cork, Ireland. hehe I knew many of the actors were dubbed by others but finding those people has proved rather difficult until recently. Do you know of any others? Drop me a line!

And...thank you. I can add Mr. Hostetter's page to the database!
