Frank Oz (voice of Yoda, "The Empire Strikes Back," "Return of the Jedi") is best known for his voice work, but has also directed movies such as "Little Shop of Horrors," "What About Bob?," "In & Out," "Bowfinger" and "Death at a Funeral." The longtime Muppet star also voiced characters on "Sesame Street" from 1969 to 2013. Oz also reprised the voice of Yoda for all three films in the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy and directed an episode of the TV show "Leverage" in 2011.
