While Bulloch is credited as Boba Fett, he only physically played the part with Jason Wingreen providing the voice in the original series.

Years later, he reappeared in the series during Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, where he portrayed Captain Jeremoch Colton, a man from Alderaan who piloted Kenobi, Bail Organa and Yoda to the bustling planet of Coruscant.

Proving his love for the saga, he made small cameos in Star Wars fan films Order of the Sith: Vengeance and its sequel Downfall – Order of the Sith in support of Save the Children.
