    That is indeed sad news. Mr. Diamond was an integral part of the Orignial Trilogy. He will be missed.

    So he was also the stick-wielding Tusken Raider in ANH. Too bad.

    I'd never heard of the man until you posted this thread and the link, thanks for sharing. He'd been a part of a lot of the movies that I've really liked. Looks like he had one heck of a career.

    By choosing not to decide you still have made a choice.

    That just happens to be his most recognizable role. He was more importantly the stunt coordinator for the movies. He was the man behind the Lightsaber duels, as well as playing a bunch of background characters in the three movies.

    I was also surprised to see no mention of this on starwars.com. I guess I foolishly assumed they would have something to say.
