When George Lucas was reworking Star Wars for the re-releases in 1997, the scenes with Han Solo and Jabba the Hutt, he wanted to add Boba Fett.  Mark Austin, who worked at ILM at the time, was in close proximity and was asked to try on the Fett helmet, it fit. They used Austin instead of making Fett partially digitized.

Teamed up with some other Star Wars actors and some wrestlers to help raise funds for Sloatsburg youth programs in Sloatsburg, New York.
*When Han goes to his ship, he is met by Jabba the Hutt. This scene was originally filmed in 1976 with Declan Mulholland in Jabba's place. Declan is replaced here by a CG Jabba who's younger and thinner than he is in ROTJ. The music used here is borrowed from Jabba's Palace in ROTJ.  Han convinces Jabba to give him an extension on his debt and Jabba and his henchmen leave, followed by Boba Fett who pauses to survey the scene.
