Wow! That split screen is eye opening! I have not seen the originals since I lost my vhs tapes when I left the USMC in 2000. I want to own them again!

Hamill has always seemed like a genuinely good dude. I also agree with almost every one of his comments on the original Star Wars trilogy. They definitely let a huge opportunity go with Boba Fett.

Anyone know why he never did any other movies? Is Luke just such a grand role you can't ever come back from it? Did he not try any other roles? What was with all the Joker references?

I don't know about your other questions, but Mark Hamill is HUGE in the voice acting business. He is pretty much considered the best voice of the Joker after his work in Arkham City, Arkham Asylum, and the Batman cartoons over the years.

Here is him as the Joker.

He is a voice actor in a lot of stuff that you wouldn't even know about unless you looked it up.

He is Skips on The Regular Show, Firelord Ozai on Avatar: The Last Airbender, voices Robot Chicken a good bit.

He seems to enjoy that work.

Well Mark Hamill is among the greatest male voice actors of all time, with only Billy West and Mel Blanc being better than him. He's made quite the career doing it and it gives a project a lot of credit if he's a part of it.

He really is. I was reading his iMDB page and he is the voice of a lot of characters that I know and I couldn't even tell. None of them sound alike.

The guy is good.

Yeah, I'm starting to second guess if Billy West is better than him, since he hasn't really done all that well in the dramatic side of cartoons. Granted Hamill tends to side on the dramatic side of things though.

But Mel Blanc is without question the greatest voice actor of all time. There are few facts in show business as far as rankings are concerned, but this is one of the few. Mel Blanc was the Looney Tunes and voiced pretty much every character but Elmer Fudd. Pop culture, film, and animation wouldn't remotely be in the same place it is today without him.

You mean you don't include Seth McFarlane and the many characters he voices on his 50 different shows?

Seth is good, but one of the all time greatest, no. His impressions are pretty easy to do really. Anyone can do a Stewie, Peter, or Quagmire impersonation pretty well. Try doing Porky Pig or Daffy Duck and see how easy that is. Really Fry, Zoidberg, and Zap Brannigan are much harder to impersonate than any character from the Family Guy universe.
