Not, the Star Wars character, no. And not Ray Park, the man behind the red and black paint. No, we’re talking about the voice of Darth Maul, British comedic actor Peter Serafinowicz. You may have blocked out most of The Phantom Menace, but his voice-over work was a major highlight.
At any rate, Hurwitz has announced that he plans to add Serafinowicz to the cast of the film version of “Arrested Development.” Hurwitz, Serafinowicz and Will Arnett all worked together previously on the failed Fox sitcom “Running Wild.” Yeah, you blocked most of that out too, didn’t you? However, Serafinowicz is a goddamn wacky delight on Twitter and also had a prominent role in a few of my favorite episodes of the British series “Spaced.”
Does anyone else get a GOB vibe from him in that episode? He’ll blend right in with the rest of the “Arrested Development” cast. Added bonus? He ain’t hard to look at.
