I'm so glad that he didn't just stay as the Luke Skywalker, but have a long career in the Voice Acting field! Thank you for all your awesome work, Mr. Hamill! :D

Happy Birthday Mark Hamill!

He has played two of the most iconic characters in all of fiction. In live-action as the legendary archetypal hero Luke Skywalker and then of course voice acting wise as the Clown Prince of Crime himself, The Joker! Both of these performances are just excellent and it's very amusing just how different these two classic characters are.

Luke had an excellent character arc that really showed him growing up and maturing into a fine Jedi warrior. I was just amazed by how far the character came in Return of the Jedi. And then what hasn't already been said about the Joker? Mark is THE DEFINITIVE voice of The Joker as far as almost everyone is concerned. He created such a unique and distinct voice that just made us go "Yup This is the Joker", I think a lot of it was helped by the great writing of Batman the Animated Series and the voice direction of Andrea Romano, but it's hard to believe that he initially wasn't even cast as Joker, he originally came in to voice another character in another episode but as they were having difficulties with their original Joker voice (Tim Curry), Mark stepped in, blew everyone away and the rest is history. Whenever Mark reprises The Joker, it's such a treat even if he is sort of retired in the role.

Luckily he has continued doing voice work ever since and I have loved so many of his roles including The Trickster (which was awesome since he's played him in both live-action Flash TV shows and voiced him too), Spectre, Sinestro, Solomon Grundy, Tony Zucco, Fire Lord Ozai, Abraham Kane, Yamma, Stickybeard, Skips, Hobgoblin, Red Skull, Klaw, Maximus, Gargoyle, Nightmare, Wolverine, Darth Bane, Chanukah Zombie, Buzz Buzzard, Tweakey da Lackey, Woodrow Burns, Walter Hobbs, Fear Feaster, Punch Bowl and the Mysterious Old Man.

The last couple of years have been very kind to Mark. He's coming back to reprise Luke Skywalker for Star Wars Episode VII, which I am looking so forward to. I can't wait to see how he pulls off an Older Luke Skywalker, and not just that but he's finally going to be voicing The Joker in The Killing Joke, a story he's always wanted to play the Joker in. I am so freaking hyped for the both of them. It's also great to see him doing more live-action roles too and still doing voice acting. Overall Mark Hamill is easily one of the best all-time VA's.

They got him back for one last hurrah in Arkham Knight. It was smart of them to keep his appearance a secret.

You can hear his voice in the newest Star Wars trailer. I guess his Joker voice finally wore off.
said at 9:54 PM on Sat Apr 18 2015
@Stare at the Sun Talking about that, you should check on Youtube for this video where they asked him to do the "I am your father scene", but with Darth Vader being the Joker. It's so funny.
said at 8:35 PM on Tue Jul 28 2015
@Stare at the Sun He only recorded the echo-y voice effect. The lines in the trailer are all taken directly from Return of the Jedi, back when he was 30 years younger.

The interesting part about Mark Hamill's entire career is that once you get to the Joker-esque part of his career and beyond, you can't unhear Joker. I for one hear Joker in every character he's portrayed afterwards
said at 12:36 AM on Thu May 28 2015
@Smarttamarr94 Truth be told, I now hear the joker in most of his previous roles too.

He was interviewed on Preston and Steve today!! They talked about how they used his likeness for a hostage in The Kingsman comic, his voice work over the years with the Joker (obviously) being the most talked about, as well as Skips. Mark even points out the fact that he tends to be typecast as villains. He also talks about what it's like to be working on Star Wars again and being on the set, and how he's been trying to get a film adaption of his comic, The Black Pearl, off the ground. I believe he just needs to find a distributor. All in all, another great interview!!!

This guy i think should be the voice of Ganondorf in Hyrule Warriors if he use Emperor Griffon voice adding raspy, deep and yet evil tone of voice, acting and performance if done right for me.

Man, Mark Hamill is officially a Star Wars Legend. If I did my own action cartoons, I'd be lucky if I could get him to play a character. Rather it's an ally or a monstrous villain, I don't care who he does!

Luke Skywalker and the Joker are why he is a legend. His Muska definitely deserves praise as well.

The man keeps saying that he's going to retire the Joker voice. And every other time, he comes back and does the voice anyway.

He'll be back. >>

I think I speak for everyone here when I say that I'm really gonna miss Mark Hamill as the Joker. But Arkham City really was the perfect note for him to end on.

Dear BTVA Administrator, On The Joker Voice Compare Page You Said Mark Hamill's Voice Got Deeper As He Got Older And He Started To Sound Like Himself, Just Wan't To Know Your Opinion, In The 2000 Batman Beyond: Return Of The Joker Voice Clip You Use, Would You Say This Is When Mark Hamill Was In His Prime And Sounded His Best And Youthful, Thank You

I like Mark Hamill as the voice of Joker, Wolverine and Eraqus.

His voice acting is very good & similar from before, but he was a actor from Star Wars in the 70's and 80's as usual.

He´s the best of the best man XD if I´d have to pick three of his greatest characters it would probably be 1) The joker of course 2) ricochet rabbit and 3) the hobgoblin. can´t wait to see more of his work XD
