You know how it was no fun to watch those “Star Wars” prequels; it sounds like they were no fun to make either. Well, that’s according to two of the actors who played minor roles in “Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace,” anyway. British comedian, actor and presenter Peter Serafinowicz provided the voice of Darth Maul in Lucas’ first prequel, while Terence Stamp took on the cameo role of Chancellor Valorum, and it sounds like they both had similarly disappointing experiences.

About a year ago, we pegged Peter Serafinowicz as one of the music video directors we expected to make a breakthrough into features in the immediate future. The comic actor, perhaps best known for voicing Darth Maul in "Star Wars," had made a couple of excellent videos for Hot Chip and Alex Metric. And indeed, he's now gearing up for his directorial debut, in which he'll star as his comic creation Brian Butterfield.

Much to our surprise, one of the most popular stories we've run in the last few months was the news from the comedian Peter Serafinowicz that he was working on a film featuring his cult creation Brian Butterfield, an obese, incompetent middle-aged man who seems to botch everything he turns his hand to, but it speaks to the extent to which Butterfield, and Serafinowicz, has grown more and more popular in the four years since "The Peter Serafinowicz Show" was on the air, thanks principally to the proliferation of his work on the Internet, and the actor/writer/director's star status on Twitter.

Who would have thought, twelve years ago, that the man voicing Darth Maul, the villain in the miserable "Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace," would turn out to be such a potent comic talent? But over the last decade or so, Peter Serafinowicz has proven himself to be one of the funniest men around.

Will Now Spend The Rest Of His Life Saying 'It's Still Being Written' In InterviewsIf you're not familiar with Peter Serafinowicz, rest assured, he's a very, very funny man. First coming to prominence as the voice of Darth Maul in "The Phantom Menace," the actor spent years cropping up in the best of British comedies like "Spaced," "Black Books" and "Look Around You," as well as a major supporting role in "Shaun of the Dead." In recent years, however, he's gone from strength to strength; with his absurdist sketch show "The Peter Serafinowicz Show" becoming a cult hit (watch a highlight below), he's started to make waves in the US, providing most of the few laughs in the Vince Vaughn/Jon Favreau vehicle "Couples Retreat," and consistently stealing the show in "Running Wilde," the now canceled sitcom from "Arrested Development" creator Mitchell Hurwitz.
