Richard LeParmentier Dies at 66

motti[1]Sad news today from the STAR WARS universe… Admiral Motti died.  More specifically, the actor that played Admiral Motti, RICHARD LEPARMENTIER passed away at the age of 66 in Austin, TX while visiting family.  The death was unexpected and cause unknown. 

While best known (by me) from his role in STAR WARS, he also starred in a number of British television series as well as WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT and was a reporter in SUPERMAN II.  He will always be fondly remembered as the first big reason that nobody wanted to f%$# around with Darth Vader.

“Don’t try to frighten us with your sorcerer’s ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient Jedi religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you enough clairvoyance to find the rebels’ hidden fortress… {accckkkkk!}”

RIP, RICHARD LEPARMENTIER.  You will live forever in my Blu Ray collection.

Thanks to our intrepid reader “Joe” for reminding me of it, here is a FAMILY GUY tribute to Admiral Motti:

  1. That scene makes me laugh every time I see it.

  2. I like Family Guy’s reference to this scene:

    Lord Vader, your inside references to the Los Angeles real estate market haven’t given you the clairvoyance to turn a profit on that condo in Glendale. Nor has it…
