Actually he was not the original if I am not mistaken. He was just the guy who did the sword choreography?

Considering it happened a whole 3 days ago, doesn't make it old news. What make it even sadder is the guy was DENIED to play Vader in the end scene of Episode 3. Lucas looks out for his people doesn't he?

He was the stunt double who did the light saber battles in Episode 5 and 6 if I recall correctly.

well that could have been because they 9lucas films) thought he was the one who leaked info about "return of the jedi" to the press.
Now Minsc is in charge SWORDS FOR EVERYONE!

I knew a guy around that age who was a very capable swordsman. It was staged either.

Bob Anderson was a stuntman, and yes, he played Vader in "The Empire Strikes Back", and "Return of the Jedi", if I'm not mistaken from what I heard. He also played a swordman in Lord of the Rings hehe.
