Ron takes a look at the man inside R2-D2, the one and only Kenny Baker. As Star Wars fans, we may only know Mr. Baker as the man who portrayed the little droid but it turns out the man is known for so much more. Throughout his career, he was a part of may stage productions and acting troupes. He was also very well known as one half of the comedic duo, the Minitones. With his partner, Jack Purvis, also a little person who starred in Star Wars, they created a wildly successful act in England and throughout the world. Kenny Baker is an actor that never let his stature slow him down. Join us as we give him what is by no means a “granular” salute!
