Chewbacca actor has surgery

Actor Peter Mayhew, who portrayed towering Chewbacca in the “Star Wars” films, has had double knee-replacement surgery at a Texas hospital.

Mayhew was recovering Wednesday at Plaza Medical Center in Fort Worth. Angie Mayhew says her 69-year-old husband had the surgery Monday and hopes to walk again. She says her spouse has been using a wheelchair for two years.

Angie Mayhew says her husband also had a tendon-stretching procedure to stabilize his legs. Peter Mayhew was born with a condition known as gigantism, which causes excessive growth. He’s 7 feet 3 inches tall.

The British-born actor’s medical issues will be the subject of an upcoming documentary, “Standing in the Stars — The Peter Mayhew Story.”

The Mayhews live in Boyd, about 20 miles northwest of Fort Worth.

Bogus lawyer charged

Authorities say a man who told police that he was an attorney for two cast members of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” falsely represented himself as a lawyer.

The Record reports 53-year-old Mark McGuire, of Franklin Lakes, was arrested last week and charged with unauthorized practice of law.

Authorities say McGuire spent more than 45 minutes with Jacqueline and Christopher Laurita as they were interviewed by police after a March altercation in Ridgewood. Detectives later discovered McGuire had falsely represented himself.

McGuire was released. A telephone number for him could not be located Wednesday.

The Lauritas are due in court Sept. 26 in the assault case. The man who says he was assaulted by them is due in court the same day on related charges.
