Fett is primarily played by Jeremy Bulloch in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Bulloch was cast as Fett because the costume happened to fit;he did not have to do a reading or a screen test, and Bulloch never worked from a script for either film.
Filming the role for The Empire Strikes Back lasted three weeks. The actor was pleased with the costume and used it to convey the character's menace. Bulloch based his performance on Clint Eastwood's portrayal of the Man with No Name in A Fistful of Dollars;[similar to the Western character, Bulloch cradled the gun prop, made the character seem ready to shoot, slightly tilted his head, and stood a particular way. Playing Fett in The Empire Strikes Back was both the smallest and most physically uncomfortable role Bulloch has played; Bulloch said donning the heavy jetpack was the worst aspect of the role.
Bulloch spent four weeks working on Return of the Jedi. He was unaware of Fett's demise before filming began and was "very upset" by the development; he would like to have done more with Fett. Still, Bulloch believed killing Fett made the character stronger, and that his "weak" death makes fans want the character to return. Bulloch thinks a scene created for Return of the Jedi Special Edition in which Fett flirts with a woman is not in keeping with the character's nature.
Logan had not seen the Star Wars films prior to being cast as Fett, but he watched the original trilogy at Lucas' request.The actor had to rely on his imagination for the bluescreen filming.
I'm not really a Star Wars nerd but I watched Empire over Christmas and remembered how much I liked Boba Fett and found this interesting because I also like the man with no name.
