It's already been a massive year for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, with the band landing the biggest-selling rock album of 2022 so far with Unlimited Love – but now, bassist Flea has gone one bigger by starring in the highly-anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

The first two episodes of the Star Wars spin-off hit Disney+ late last week, so we won't spoil anything for you if you haven't been able to get stuck in just yet, but Flea has added to his long list of acting credits with a role in a galaxy far, far away as bounty hunter Vect Nehru. Needless to say, it's great fun watching him attempting to carry out the task at hand…

The synopsis for Obi-Wan Kenobi reads: "The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat – the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader."

The first two episodes are available to watch on Disney+ now.
