Personal Quote:

Trivia:

He was originally brought in by George Lucas to feed lines to other actors auditioning for La guerre des étoiles (1977) because he wasn't allowed to audition (Lucas wanted new faces for the film). He eventually won Lucas over and the role of Han Solo went to him. See more »
