    You guys are right, but no has gotten Fake Wedge's name yet! =)

    On a side note, it wasn't planned that Wedge was going to be a recurring character at the time ANH was made, so that made the switcheroo that much easier to handle. Lucasfilm officially acknowledged that there were two Wedges when Decipher made their first expansion to the SW:CCG, and wanted to make a Wedge card. This first version of Wedge features fake Wedge and subsequent ones feature Denis Lawson.

    Here are answers to both sets of previous questions, since the posters both posted some at about the same time.

    The Max Rebo Band played at the Palace, and two members are Droopy McCool and Sy Snootles. A Klatooinian drummer named Umpass-stay accompanied them in the SE, but not in the original film.
    Incom made the X-Wing, and the designers defected to the Alliance with the technical plans for the starfighter.
    A car accident cut short Lucas' dreams of racing cars, making him decide to go to film school while in recovery.

    Here is a single new question, not so hard:

    Almost up to the start of filming SW, Luke had a different last name in the various script drafts. Was it

    a) Darklighter
    b) Starkiller
    c) Starwalker
    d) Skylighter

    Does that make it my turn?

    eeeee!

    The colors of the M&M's are Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Purple, Green and Brown. With the exception of the Tan one, what color is the other M?

    Ok some behind the scenes questions. What was the first special effect shot made in Star Wars?

    The IMDB says the first shot completed by ILM was when the escape pod leaves the Tantive IV.

    Here's an Artoo question. In the original trilogy, how could you generally tell at a glance whether, in a given scene, Artoo had Kenny Baker inside him, or whether Artoo was a radio controlled robot without an actor inside?

    If R2 was 3 legged than it was a robot, if 2 legged Kenny Baker.

    Brendon reminded me that I was holding out on the identity of Fake Wedge.

    The actor's name is Jack Klaff, and is credited as Red 4- John D in the credits.

    Here's the story, taken from alt.wedge.fan:

    For 19 years, Wedge fans around the world recognized Denis Lawson as the one and only actor who played Wedge. Some confusion resulted due to the Star Wars novelization, which assigned the line "That's impossible...even for a computer" to Wedge. The actor, however, is clearly not Denis Lawson, and a little research done in 1991 revealed that John D, not Wedge, said this line in the movie.

    Or so it was thought.

    Then, in 1996, an event occured that rocked the world of Wedge fans. Decipher at long last released the Wedge Antilles card for Star Wars:The Customizable Card Game. This had been delayed until the second part of the A New Hope cards to spread things out and eagerly awaited by Wedge fans who played the CCG. The discovery that the card's picture was not of Wedge, but instead of John D, played by Jack Klaff, was rather shocking. Assuming Decipher had made a mistake, several Wedge fans emailed them about it. The response was amazing, and the story soon was posted it alt.fan.wedge.

    B: KLAFF'S INVOLVEMENT

    As it turned out, Klaff was the original Wedge actor. Soon after Smith's discovery, Jason Winter, Decipher's online representative, posted to alt.fan.wedge "In Star Wars [A New Hope], Lucas originally got the actor Jack Klaff to play Wedge. He did so in the briefing room scene, where he said "That's impossible, even for a targeting computer." We have confirmed
    with Lucasfilm that indeed, this is Wedge Antilles. Later, Jack "became unavailable". Denis Lawson was the actor who played Wedge in the Death Star attack scenes, as well as later in ESB and RotJ."

    Sandy Wible, another Decipher rep, commented "Well, I'm not sure that he [Klaff] actually appeared in the Death Star scenes, or whether that was just an error in the credits. The credits are flat wrong in at least two other places, so it's not unbelievable."

    So, in fact, Fake Wedge is Real Wedge. ;)

    Okay, since my brain is frazzled from work, I'll give an easy question.

    In what other movie, besides Star Wars movies, did Jeremy Bulloch play a character named Fett?

    I looked this up - the film is called "Number One, longing. Number two, regret." Huh. Interesting. Is it a good movie?

    Here are more Jeremy Bulloch questions. (answer either) In the Empire Strikes Back, in what scene can you see Jeremy without his Fett costume? And, in what scene is the Fett costume inhabited by somebody else?

    Bonus: Who was the somebody else?

    That scene would be whan Leia,Chewbacca and Threepio (in pieces)are being escorted by one officer and 3 or 4 stormtroopers,before Luke spots them. The Imperial officer is Jeremy Bulloch.

    Benn a long time since I got the chance to post a question,so...

    Jedi Master Yaddle is not seen in Ep. II,what is the reason? And/Or Deppa Billaba is one of the Jedi Council to NOT go to Geonosis,where was she/what was she doing?

    Tell me if this is correct before I go and ask something- was yaddle not in Ep. 2 because she was stationed at the Jedi training center on Kamparas?

    Name a movie that is NOT the Phantom Menace, yet it has Ian McDiarmid (who played Palpatine) as an old man in a dark conspiracy, Ray Park (who played Darth Maul) spinning his sword in his hand as an evil character, and Star Wars stunt coordinator Nick Gillard teaching the swordfights to the actors.
