Awesome: Mark Hamill

  • Managing to become one of the most prolific and respected men in the voice-acting business is already pretty awesome , but remember that Mark Hamill did it when most of the world was calling him a washed-up has-been and insisting that Luke Skywalker would be his last noteworthy role. Think about it: of all the children of the 1990's who grew up watching both Star Wars and Batman: The Animated Series, how many of them ever once suspected that Luke Skywalker and The Joker were played by the same man? Getting to play two of the most iconic characters in modern popular culture would be a great achievement for anyone, but getting to play two such radically different characters—and win massive acclaim for both performances—is an accomplishment that few other actors can boast.
