RIP Uncle Owen: Phil Brown Dies

Phil Brown, the man who immortalized the grizzled Uncle Owen in Star Wars: A New Hope, has died.

A few years back, Josh saw him at the San Diego Comic Con and took this picture. It appears that being too grizzly can be fatal.

So long, Uncle. You raised a good kid.


  1. He might be dead, but he’d better have those units in the South Ridge repaired by midday, or there’ll be hell to pay.

    He was grizzly, but in a fantastic way.
