writes: I was reading an article ("Episode III Set Diary: Wrapping Up Week One") on the Star Wars Hyperspace site and I ran across an interesting tidbit. It seems that Jay Laga'aia
, who plays Captain Typho in Episodes II & III, broke his leg while filming fight scenes for "Return of the King." He showed up on the set of Episode III fresh out of his cast, but still on crutches. Unfortunately, there were no details on how the injury happened. According to your site, Laga'aia
played Ugluk in "TTT",' but IMDB doesn't list him in any LotR movies. At any rate, it certainly sounds like he'll be in the third one.
