Nute Gunray from Star Wars played by Silas Carson and Tom Kenny.

Nute Gunray is a fictional male Neimoidian in the Star Wars film series who was played on screen by Silas Carson and Tom Kenny. Nute Gunray holds the rank of Viceroy within the Trade Federation.

Nute Gunray is the Leader of The Trade Federation seen prominently in star Wars I - The Phantom Menace. He is a weak and greedy figure who gets corrupted by a shadowy Sith lord known as Darth Sidious.

Nute is persuaded to increase the trade taxes from Naboo, Padme Amidala refuses to pay for the taxes and so Nute blockades the planet. Nute is part of Palpatine's plan to gain control of the Galactic Senate and then take full control of the galaxy.

After Padme Amidala is forced to flee Naboo to try to persuade the Galactic Council, Padme returns to Naboo to force Nute Gunray to stop his blockade of the planet.

The Trade Federation joins Count Dooku on Geonosis as Palpatines plans to create a schism in the galaxy begins to be fulfiled. Although defeated on Geonsis, it is not until Anakin Skywalker has fully transitioned to Darth Vader that Nute is killed on Mustafar.
