Katee Sackhoff lends voice to 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars'

How's this for a little genre cross-pollinating: Katee Sackhoff of "Battlestar Galactica" fame is guest-voicing a character in the latest episode of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars."

Sackhoff voices the armored warrior Bo-Katan in "A Friend In Need," premiering at 7 p.m. Jan. 13 on Cartoon Network. "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau will voice the warlord Pre Vizsla. They are part of the Death Watch, which has been absent since their attempt to take over Mandalore in Season 2. Now they're stronger and far more dangerous.

In the episode, "Ahsoka Tano is reunited with Lux Bonteri, the handsome young Separatist who opened her eyes to the fact that the war isn't always black and white. When Lux suddenly barges into a peace conference between Separatists and Republic delegates, he involves Ahsoka in a dangerous search to find justice for his mother's death. Dave Filoni directed the episode.
