Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea set to appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi

Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea is reportedly appearing in Obi Wan Kenobi in cameo.

Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has made several film cameos throughout his career, but appearing in the Obi Wan Kenobi series will be his first appearance at a Star Wars property. The guitarist will wield a unique, “cool” blaster. The artist has already appeared in films such as Back to the future, The great Lebowskiand more recently baby driver.

A musician’s last cameo at a Star Wars property was Thundercat in Chapter 4 of Boba Fett’s Book, in which he only appeared for a short screen time. While it’s unclear how big Flea’s role will be in the film, as it wasn’t part of the show’s main marketing, it will most likely be a minor cameo.

In February, series director Deborah Chow actually directed the rock band’s music video for black summer from their new album Unlimited love which could have been the starting point of Flea’s pipeline to make an appearance in his project.

By the way, Ewan McGregor once said he was a fan of a Scottish band of the same name called the Red Hot Chili Pipers. McGregor also recently expressed interest in reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi after the series ended.

During interview with Total FilmEwan McGregor was asked if he would be interested in returning as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the future, beyond the Obi Wan Kenobi series.

“If we were to have the opportunity to do it again, I would totally go for it,” McGregor said, in response to the question of his willingness to return as the titular character.

“Here we go again,” he jokes. “It’s like knocking on Disney’s door again!” This of course refers to the years when McGregor was questioned and introduced himself, the subject of returning as Kenobi.
