Ok, here's the deal. I'm in the process of clearing up all the rumors regarding characters Treat Williams supposedly played in The Empire Strikes Back. (Read through the article if you're interested.) At this point in the process, I'm attempting to document all instances in which officially-licensed LFL products have actually addressed the issue of Williams' role in the film. One of these instances apparently happened through the now-defunct Star Wars Hyperspace feature known as "Photoreceptor," which showcased rarely seen images from the Star Wars saga.
On November 3, 2004, Photoreceptor released an image entitled "In For a Treat," which evidently had to do with Treat Williams being in the film, apparently relating to the character Jess Allashane. Please read through the Jess Allashane talk page, specifically discussions 2 and 5, which pertains to this. In discussion 5, you will see that Azizlight actually pipelinked this picture's original URL, which is now defunct. This URL has several hits through Internet Archive, but each gives a "Got an HTTP 302 response at crawl time" error message when you try to open it.
Unfortunately, through the infinite wisdom of StarWars.com, Star Wars Hyperspace, Photoreceptor, and all of these rarely seen images can no longer be accessed. Some Photoreceptor images can still be found on random fan sites, but the "In For a Treat" image does not appear to be one of them. So I'm trying to figure out exactly what this image was, and I'm hoping someone out there remembers this.
Specifically, I'm looking for the following: a) What did the image depict? b) Was there any text that accompanied the image? c) Anything you can elaborate on regarding the discussions on the Jess Allashane talk page. I find it strange that Gonk seemed so sure that SW.com was asserting that Treat Williams played Jess Allashane, but Azizlight was not so sure.
I remember that one. This is the image you're looking for. I'm pretty certain the accompanying text didn't make any connection between Williams as Allashane and was only about him visiting the set to see Carrie Fisher, joking around with her and -in doing so- posing for this photograph. What I'm not sure about is if the Photoreceptor feature said anything about him actually appearing as a background character in TESB. --Borsk Fey'lyaTalk 15:56, August 30, 2012 (UTC)
