Mark Hamill Waves Goodbye to Joker

Everyone knows who Mark Hamill is. If you don’t know him by name, then it’s guaranteed that you know him by face. He’s the dude that is known for playing the infamous kick-ass Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars flicks. You know, the son of Darth Vader who gets his hand amputated for talking back to daddy? Yea, that guy.

When he wasn’t saving the galaxy from Sith douche bags, rescuing Han Solo from the clutches of Jabba the Hutt, or making out with his twin sister, Mark Hamill was doing other great roles in films such as the World War II movie The Big Red One (and no, it wasn’t a porn), and the comedic Covertte Summer.

But Hamill’s passion wasn’t really acting in front of the camera. He was more passionate with voice acting – something that, I must say, he is excellent at. His most popular role is that of Batman’s arch-nemesis the Joker in the animated series and, most recently, Batman: Arkham Asylum. Returning once again for the sequel Arkham Asylum 2, Hamill has stated that he’s apparently done with the character after this take.

“This will be my last, there’s no question about that. But it’s the last hurrah.”

I would love to agree with good ol’ Mark there, but my Jedi powers tell me that he will come back and voice the character once again in the future. If anyone is feeling brave enough to make bets, please let me know in advance so that I can get my Italian bookie.
