Here is one of those Oscar style a year in the death of retrospect's courtesy of the BBC. It's a little UK-centric but I think there is enough for none British JD members to appreciate (if that's the right word to use). Apologises in advance if it's one of those UK only pages on the BBC's website

Vader 'Lightsaber Double' Bob Anderson

Damn.  I had really been hoping to add Bob Anderson to my Vader autograph collection.  Very sad news.  But some of the sword fights he left us with in films including Star Wars and beyond will always be with us.  His work on Lord of the Rings alone is very noteworthy.

And looking through his IMDB page, it seems that he was also an Imperial Officer in TESB.  Does anyone know from which scene?

Dang...RIP, Detective Manny Esposito.

Slice you open like a tauntaun, faster than the Autobahn,
Or a motorbike in Tron, do the deed and then I'm gone.

Damn, the Wise Man, Mr. Pitt and the voice of Palps/Sidious on the Clone Wars, that's quite a body of work.

I seem to recall Jim Rome had a funny story about that guy...something about him being a lousy tipper or something like that.

Even more reason for me to pick up the Criterion blu-ray of Anatomy of a Murder later this month.

Just hope it isn't due to her use of drugs.
