HOLY CRAP! I FOUND PORKINS!

Recommended Posts

I found him at the Yuma Air Show. It looks like he is slimmer then I remember him in from the future, and he hasn't yet decided he likes the goatee. He is currently an F-5 pilot, and has yet to try the T-65 X-Wing. Hell, I think the X-Wing still has yet to be invented.

 

Anyways, here he is in the future:

No....I work with Porkins.

 

I would get in trouble for posting a pic of him....but he is a spot on dead ringer for Porkins. I mean dead on....same face, same thin nasty looking beard. I swear if I did not see Porkins on the big screen 30 years ago, it was the same guy

 

 

We even call him Red Six.

Sorry, but I have you beat by over 3 decades.....I worked for Porkins, or rather, Porkins was one of the shift foreman at a job I started at in 1977.... :yikes:

 

The Autumn after the release of Star Wars, I went to work for a transporation company. As I was new (and therefore the lowest man on the totum pole), I wound up turning wrenches on the Midnight-8AM shift, and the foreman on that shift (a fellow by the name of Gary) was a dead-ringer for Porkins. He was like 6'1", 300 lbs, same scruffy red beard, and often wore amber-tinted shades (it was the 1970s, afterall).

I've only seen him one other time I can recall. He was one of the 2 Army intelligence guys talking to Jones and Marcus at the start of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Since that was 1936 he's certainly long dead by now.

Not true. He was also a Lt. for the Gotham Police department in the late 80s when Mr. Mom put on a Bat suit

 

"Hey Eckhardt! Think about the future!"

He spent a good 30ish years in the UK doing theatre. Apparently he was quite the thespian. And some VO work.

Yes, but I didn't recall that, so my statement stands. :grin:

Damn....there's just no winning with a Jedi.

 

On a lighter side.....imagine being an actor with a "little extra padding" and landing the role of "Porkins"....what are the odds?
