    I just learned today that the actor who portrayed Donovan from the Last Crusade (the guy who died from super-accelerated aging after drinking from the fake Grail) also played General Veers in ESB. That was news to me.

    Well this was a wish that has come true. I saw Indiana Jones toys out at Wal-Mart last night. Little 3 3/4 inch figures. Also Playskool has some of the deformed figure and there is even a Indy potatohead. The funy thing I was was there was a Playskool Indy figure packed with a "Ghost of the Ark" . . . he hehe . . that's right let you kids think its a cute Casper the friendly Ghost and then scare the crap out of them with the movie . . . he he he

    He was also in a James Bond film ("For Your Eyes Only," I think), making him the only actor with a role in each of those three film franchises.

    Julian Glover died? That's a bummer. How come there's not news of this all over the Star Wars sites?
    Great actor.

    In his continuous nature to be at the control of large beasty things, he also did the voice for the mammoth-sized spider "Aragog" from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I could've sworn he actually died awhile back, but I guess I was thinking of the guy (Michael Sheard) whom played Admiral Ozzel as well as Hitler in many things including The Last Crusade.

    I wonder how many other Imperial Officer actors played Nazis?

    Julian Glover, a good piece of casting. Did you know the actor who played Hitler was Admiral Ozzel? Or Porkins was the Army Intelligence agent in Raiders?

    That's right, he was the villain in that one. But he wasn't the only actor with a role in each franchise I believe, there are a few other actors with smaller roles.

    He misspoke, he meant the character died, not the actor, Julian Glover is alive last I saw and has 3 movies coming out soon.

    Seeing as how this toy line is a bit more than a theory now, I think I'll move this thread.

    And now that I see how there's no way or reason to merge this with the "other" Indiana Jones" thread... I suppose you're right Caesar.

    Thanks for digging this one up BTW.
