* SelfDeprecation: On his Facebook page, he made a post on the first ''Film/RogueOne'' trailer, in which it says, "Pretty sure I don't have any lines in this one either." [[note]] In the ending of the last ''Franchise/StarWars'' film, ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', which is the only part of the movie he is in, he does not have any lines.[[/note]]

Better known as [[Franchise/StarWars Luke Skywalker]], SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker or [[VideoGame/WingCommander Christopher Blair]], Mark Hamill (September 25, 1951-) was considered one of the best young talents in the 1970s. Though praised for a strong performance as Luke Skywalker in the ''Star Wars'' trilogy, he could never match the success of his most famous role. Despite being {{typecast|ing}}, he was frequently in demand and performed in several lesser known films before turning more to theater ([[DoingItForTheArt not just to pay the bills, but because he preferred it]]), eventually getting juicy lead roles in big plays on Broadway like ''{{Theatre/Amadeus}}'' and ''Film/TheElephantMan''.

More recently, he's built on some early experience to become one of the most acclaimed voice actors in the industry. He's often found playing dynamic, outright ''evil'' villains (ironic, considering his previous typecasting as a hero), most notably SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker as stated earlier - many consider his performance to be the definitive interpretation of the character. [[MeanCharacterNiceActor He's a nice guy in real life, despite the typecasting]].

* EvilLaugh: Due to voicing SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker for well over 20 years, he has this down to ''[[http://youtu.be/lb8fWUUXeKM an art form]]''.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: One of the friendliest, nicest celebrities you'll ever meet, quite unlike SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker.

* Did a guest shot as himself (leaning heavily on his legacy as Luke Skywalker) on the season 10 episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' "Mayored to the Mob", where Homer becomes Mayor Quimby's bodyguard after saving Hamill from a sci-fi convention of rioting nerds. He also did a "secret" guest role in the same episode as the DrillSergeantNasty Leavelle who teachers Homer how to become a bodyguard. Reportedly, he requested that he be allowed to play a character.
