Mark Hamill visited Jimmy Kimmel last night to talk about his current projects. While there was just a tiny bit of Star Wars talk, in the segment, it’s Mark Hamill so I figured we would post the video. As far as Star Wars talk goes, they made mention of Hamill’s recent trailer talk on Twitter, and his beard for the movie.
Even though there isn’t much here about Star Wars, it’s always nice to hear Hamill speak. His history in the saga, and other films gives him a unique perspective on life and Hollywood. Check out the video above.
Mark talks about his new show ‘Knightfall,’ getting into lots of hair and make-up, releasing the exclusive trailer for the new Star Wars movie, and getting his start on ‘General Hospital.’
