10 Roles You Didn't Realize Were Played By Luke Skywalker

- Page 1

Mark Hamill has been a household name since 1977, thanks to his iconic role as Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, which he recently returned to with the new movies! However, his career extends far beyond Star Wars, and in particular, these 10 roles are ones that we all loved, and often probably didn't even realize it was him.

Batman: The Animated Series - The Joker

The other role he's probably best-known for, Hamill has lent his voice to Gotham City's Clown Prince of Crime many times since the early 90s. Be it in cartoons like Batman: The Animated Series or the Arkham series of video games, his Joker is considered by many to be the definitive take on the character; equal parts funny, mysterious, and menacing.

Jeannie - Cory Anders


Before getting his biggest break as Luke Skywalker, Hamill voiced the protagonist in this cartoon followup of the hit sitcom I Dream of Jeannie. The series only released 16 episodes, but stayed in syndication for a few years.

Wing Commander Series - Col. Christopher "Maverick" Blair

A video game series best known for mixing space opera storytelling with starship battles, Origin Systems began recording live actors to portray the characters in Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger. Hamill was cast as the series' protagonist, Col. Christopher Blair. He would return to the role for Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom and Wing Commander Academy.

Spider-Man - Hobgoblin

Apparently never one to pass up a role as a comic book villain, Hamill played Jason Macendale, AKA Hobgoblin. You can definitely hear him slip into some of his Joker voice during this performance.

Some of his later roles are also pretty surprising...
