Ira Keeler worked as a model maker for Industrial Light & Magic. He worked on many films, including Lucasfilm Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, as well as Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
Keeler made a brief appearance in the Star Tours ride film, as a crewman who ducks out of the way of an out-of-control StarSpeeder 3000. A popular misconception was that this actor was actually George Lucas.
