'Star Wars' Cast: Where Are They Now?
Chewbacca, played by Peter Mayhew: Standing at 7'3", Mayhew was cast in the original 'Star Wars' series solely because of his impressive height. He reprised his role as Han Solo's Wookiee sidekick in 2005's 'Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith'. Since then, Mayhew made appearances as Chewie on shows like 'Late Show with David Letterman' and 'Glee'.
