Rumors on Twitter say that James Earl Jones has passed away.

Looks to be only rumors so far. I suspect it's not legit.

Random Twitter people saying he died of complications from diabetes, but until something credible emerges, this just seems like another hoax - nothing from the usual gossip rags, which I'd expect to be leading the charge is the news was real, tbh.

So far, still alive, from what I can see. But if he is dead, he'll be my first hit.

So, source for death reports is some twitter bot called the Just Died Bot, which scrapes Wiki for news of celeb deaths and tweets RIP messages. My guess? Someone messed with JEJ's Wiki entry, it was up for long enough that the bot sent out the message, and it caught the notice of a couple of twitter users - rumours have mostly died out after the first hour or so.

Peter Mayhew is 74 today!

Makes me wonder, who was the oldest tall (let's say 2m+) person in history?

You have this guy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felipe_Birriel who reached 78 years, was there anyone who reached even more advanced age?

Lando's supposedly "pansexual" in the new Disney Star Wars: Solo film. Supposedly he has an intimate relationship with his droid and flirts with Han Solo a bit:

Fairly reliable source indicates that Terry Windell has died:

He's the guy that animated the lightning bolts from the Emperor on Return Of The Jedi.

 

Other credits include Ghostbusters, the two Poltergeist movies and ET: The Extra Terrestrial. Oh and directed some Star Trek episodes for TV.
