ScreenCrush is reporting
that actor Tim Curry, who took over the role
of Palpatine in Star Wars: The Clone Wars
upon the death of Ian Abercrombie, will be playing the Emperor in the new animated TV series Star Wars Rebels
In a where-are-they-now article
about the cast of Charlie's Angels
-- in which Curry played Roger Corwin -- ScreenCrush's Britt Hayes writes, "He mostly does voice work these days, and has lent his voice to ?Star Wars: The Clone Wars? as Palpatine, a role he will reprise for the upcoming ?Star Wars Rebels? animated TV series."
When I asked Lucasfilm about this report, their response was, "We haven't made any casting announcements for Rebels yet."
Thanks to Rebelscum reader RJ for the tip!
