Didn't find any thread mentioning it but Ted Burnett that played him passed away then.

Wow... that sucks. I was just reading his "tale" in the "Mos Eisley Cantina" book yesterday.

Sorry to hear this. Being as the movie is 30 years old, we have lost many fine talents from the 1977 classic, Peter Cushing, Alec Guinness, Phil Brown, Jack Purvis, William Hootkins, Peter Diamond, and I'm sure there are many others. Some we will hear about, but hopefully not as far away as this.

William HootkinsPorkins isn't dead. He lives on in every strip of fatty bacon that we shove into our mouths.:pleased:

Very sad. We should all hoist a few in memory of the Surly One.

Did you ever notice how different his voice sounded between "We don't serve their kind in here" and "No blasters! No blasters!"? I wish they would've left his real voice in the mix.
