He was a great Palpatine in The Clone Wars. He was so close 2 recording all his lines for the final season just missing out on the final episode. Tim shouldn't get big credit for it as he was only in that episode. RIP Ian.

It's a little disconcerting seeing him as the ultimate "light" character in GLTAS and then seeing him as the ultimate "dark" character in Clone Wars. O_O

RIP, he was a great actor!

Assuming Green Lantern TAS gets another season guess there's going to be a new VA.

As for Palpatine/Darth Sidious in SW: TCW, it would make sense to use Ian McDiarmid (who Abercrombie was imitating).

Imdb isn't the most reliable but it would seem he's available if offered the opportunity (nothing since 2009).

Of course imdb doesn't cover theatre projects and for all I know maybe McDiarmid has a busy theatre career at the moment.

Well, that's disheartening. He was a good Palpatine. Who will they get to replace him?
