Here with some sad news. Michael Sheard has died at the age of 65, losing his struggle with Cancer. Most stateside know him from his bit parts in Spielberg and Lucas' films. Specifically as Admiral Ozzel from THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK who had that great moment where you really get a feeling for just how badass Darth Vader is and how cold and ruthless he can be. "You have failed me for the last time, Admiral."
He also had the brief, but memorable role as Hitler in INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE. Remember he signed Dr. Jones' Grail Diary. Sheard also had a bit part playing a Nazi U-Boat Captain in RAIDERS as well as playing Himmler in 1973's TV movie THE DEATH OF ADOLF HITLER.

RIP Admiral Ozzel you will be missed! :crybaby:
