Mythbusters' Grant Imahara joins the Renegades cast!

Grant Imahara will take a break from inventing cool robotics and blowing up stuff to join the cast of Renegades!

Grant is one of the hosts of Discovery Channel's Mythbusters. Before that, he spent nine years as an animatronics engineer and model maker for George Lucas's Industrial Light and Magic. Grant worked on many blockbusters including The Matrix sequels, Galaxy Quest, Terminator 3, and Star Wars: Episodes 1-3 (although he is NOT responsible for Jar Jar). He put the lights in R2-D2's dome and gave the Energizer Bunny his beat. He also created the often rude and irreverent robot skeleton sidekick for late night talk show host Craig Ferguson. 

Grant will play an aide to Admiral Chekov.

      Any Chance he's going to build a robot and then blow it up. Just Joking,

      Sweet. I am really forward to this version of Star Wars. Oops, I mean Star Trek. He he he.

      Now I'm even more excited!

      Hooray! It's fun to see Grant get cameos, but I'd rather hear that he's creating props for the show and not just getting screen time. I suppose we should have given more money if we wanted that though.

      Hooray for Geoff Peterson's dad!

      This is great news! Our family loves Grant on Mythbusters. He should makes a great addition to the cast. Will he be helping with any of the technical aspects of the production (special effects, etc.)?

      Very nice!

    8. Creator Katrina Sauvé on December 20, 2012

      Chekov: I was never that young.
      Kirk: No, you were younger :)
