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...

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


'Clarissa Explains It All' Reboot Is Apparently In The Works, And Melissa Joan Hart Is Involved

We first met Melissa Joan Hart in 1991 when she stepped onto the scene as Clarissa Darling. She was cool, unique, and iconic in her time. She's credited as the first female lead of a Nickelodeon show, and because of her they were able to make many other hit series like The Secret World of Alex Mack and The Amanda Show. But Clarissa was truly one-of-a-kind.  I mean, how many people do you know who owned a baby alligator named Elvis? Her show was different then a lot of others, because she would directly address the audience. She dealt

'Men In Black' Reboot Reveals Who They've Cast As The Stars Of The New Movie

I know, I know, no more reboots! Everyone is sick of our favorite movies getting made over and over again, but Hollywood seems to be out of ideas and they've got to make something. This time it's going to be a remake of arguably the best Will Smith movie ever: Men In Black. Sony plans to go the Jurassic World route, and introduce new characters in the already established world. So I guess it's not so much a reboot as a spin-off. The new movie is not set to feature either Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K or Will Smith's Agent
