Tim Curry to take over for Chancellor Palpatine in Clone Wars

The sad passing of the legendary Ian Abercrombie, voice of Clone Wars' Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious, left a great disturbance in the Force. But another giant has stepped up to fill in the Emperor's cloak.

The Huffington Post is reporting that Clone Wars big boss Dave Filoni has cast Tim Curry to finish out the Emperor's rule. Curry will debut this Saturday in the big season finale, so ready your ears, padawans.
