Erik Bauersfeld is a well known dramatist for radio but perhaps more famously he is known as being the voice for the GREATEST Star Wars character of all time, Admiral Ackbar. Erik also happened to be the voice of Jabba the Hutt’s majordomo, Bib Fortuna. Though sadly as you’ll learn from the video below he never received any actual credit in the films for his voice over work when they were originally released, thankfully that has been fixed in the DVD release of Return of the Jedi.
Thanks to io9 for the heads up on this story!
You can check out Peter’s own blog post about it all, he is the one interviewing Erik in the video above.
