His body, to be stuffed into the open, steaming guts of a Tauntaun...

\rip "I've found them, repeat, I've found them," man...

Besides ESB, he also played Jennifer Connelly's father in "Labyrinth".

Zev's dead baby. Zev's dead.

Sad news, but it does make me itch for Adywan to finish the Revisited edition. Looking forward to that.

Nice! There's a connection I wouldn't have even thought to look up... now I'll see it every time.

I just began wondering: is there a "Labyrinth" trifecta in play? First John Henson, then Christopher Malcolm. Who's next?

Playing the role of Rebel pilot Zev Senesca, Scottish actor Christopher Malcolm's presence in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK was a memorable one, in both the scene where he finds the missing Luke and Han in the snowy wilderness of Hoth, then proving his courage in battle alongside the rest of Rogue Squadron against the immense threat of the Imperial Walkers. Two worthy sequences in an altogether terrific movie.

I understand speaking respectfully of the dead, but I wouldn't exactly call a one-line wonder "memorable".  I couldn't remember him, and I'm pretty sure his character didn't have a name until the EU started giving every single extra a detailed backstory.

I just watched ESB last night. Those ice speeders were damn near useless against the walkers. I guess if they slowed them down, they served their purpose. I was enjoying thinking back to seeing it in the theater when I was fourteen. Something kids will never experience today; having the credits roll, and realizing it was going to be years before you found out how the story would end.

Says the guy with a head injury that obviously can't remember anything.

I was amazed by just how many things William Hootkins was in that I saw growing up and never recognized him from anything else! I never put two and two together when I saw "Raiders" or "Flash Gordon," "Batman," etc. To me that was always the epitome of an awesome character actor.

Without looking it up, I'm pretty sure the line was:  "Echo Base this is Rogue 2.  I've found them.  Repeat:  I've found them."

That's just going off memory.  So yes, it is memorable.  And I haven' seen ESB in at least 7 years.

When did 67 become "all too young"?

Ever since the boomers all retired at 60 and declared the 90's to be the appropriate age of decade of death, even though the life expectancy of Americans is 70 years.

He was also in Highlander:

He was part of a lot of awesome movies in the 80s, wasn't he?

He is also originated the role of Brad Majors in the original stage production of "The Rocky Horror Show."
Damn, this guy was cool.

What always irked me about the Hoth battle was how stupid the speeders were for attacking the walkers from the one direction they were shooting at. Attack them from the sides, the rear, or from above. Anything but right in front if them.

When George Lucas says people in space do things a certain way, you don't argue, damnit!
