Is it a coincidence that the one overweight member of the Red Squadron in STAR WARS was named Porkins? Red Six flew alongside Luke Skywalker, but Jek Porkins didn’t last long, his X-Wing Fighter being shot down by an Imperial TIE Fighter while making an attack on the Death Star during the Battle of Yavin 4. Portrayed by actor William Hootkins, the 2000 Hasbro Power of the Jedi action figure of Porkins is today’s featured entry into Hasbro’s Force Friday Countdown Calendar. Hootkins, who died in 2005, was born on this day back in 1948. He also played another memorable role for many, that of Lt. Eckhardt in Tim Burton’s 1989 BATMAN film.
