A brilliantly funny and inventive comedian. He also made a one-man recording of "A Christmas Carol" based on Dickens' live-reading abridgment. His collection of answering machine messages was priceless.

For all the star wars fans

"Don't try to frighten us with your sorcerer's ways, Lord Vader."

reports that Star Wars actor Richard LeParmentier has passed away at the age of 66. He has appeared in over fifty films and TV shows, but is best known as Admiral Motti, who mocked the Force and Darth Vader's "sad devotion to that ancient Jedi religion." He pays for it when Vader finds his lack of faith disturbing and Force chokes him.

He also played a police lieutenant in Who Framed Roger Rabbit and worked as a screenwriter for British TV. It's unknown what caused him to die right now.

At one point he was married to British actress Sarah Douglas, who played Ursa in Superman II.

We lost actor Allan Arbus this week at the age of 95. He played psychiatrist Maj. Sidney Freedman on "M*A*S*H." He was a recurring character rather than a regular character, but I always enjoyed his performances when he was on the show.

Dr. Sidney Freedman, imparting dry wisdom to the 4077th's beleaguered staff, as he did in his final appearance in 1983:

"Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice; pull down your pants and slide on the ice."
