Mark Hamill Reads More Donald Trump Tweets as The Joker on Mlk Day

19 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Donald Trump keeps tweeting, and Mark Hamill keeps mocking him. Last week the “Star Wars” actor had the idea to read aloud Trump’s tweets in the voice of The Joker, who Hamill voices in “Batman: The Animated Series.” And following Trump’s latest tweets targeted at U.S. Representative John Lewis, Hamill recorded “A Very Special Message for Martin Luther King Day,” once again parroting Trump’s words as The Joker. “Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart,” Hamill read aloud in a fiendish cackle »

Fans were left hanging at the end of “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens” as Rey hands Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill, his old lightsaber. But that’s not the only reunion he’s had with his classic weapon.

Mark Hamill Records Donald Trump's John Lewis Twitter Rant as The Joker

20 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Mark Hamill's supervillain alter ego is back — and reading even more tweets by Donald Trump.

For a little more than a week, Hamill has been trolling Trump by reading tweets from the President-elect in the voice of The Joker, whom Hamill voices in DC animated films and TV series.

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Hamill has debuted the latest installment, which sees the Trumpster read tweets about Rep. John Lewis, a civil rights icon and friend of Martin Luther King Jr.

Trump's tweets were in response to an interview clip released Friday, in which »

Mark Hamill's Eyes Are Brightened With This Authentic Lightsaber

21 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

I have a treat for you today! I must start this with the fact that I am fascinated with "Bearded Mark Hamill". As he has gotten older, he has become much more somber, his "Joker" voice has deepened, and he is a humble guy just glad to be where he is today. I think he likes the fact he can shoot more Star Wars films, and even moreso loves just how much the Star Wars fans damn near worship him. I am one of said fans, and I was so happy to see this new clip from Comic-Con HQ on an upcoming episode of Mark Hamill's Pop Culture Quest. You must check this out, and see his expression when he unveils his "gift" and realizes just what it is.

Greatness! Love it love it!

The interviewer did inject a nice little tidbit here, this was the same prop used by »

Mark Hamill Is Reunited with His Lightsaber from ‘Return of the Jedi’ — Watch

22 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Between the election of Donald Trump and the passing of Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill has mostly been in the news for unhappy developments these last few months. He’s called the incoming administration a “who’s-who of really despicable people” and written an emotional tribute to his “Star Wars” sister, so it comes as a welcome reprieve to see him reunited with an old friend — even if it’s just a movie prop.

In an upcoming episode of “Mark Hamill’s Pop Culture Quest,” Luke Skywalker himself is shown a small suitcase and asked if he knows what it contains. Hamill has no idea, and so Alinger shows him: the original lightsaber he used in “Return of the Jedi,” which was also used by Sir Alec Guinness in “A New Hope.” Watch the clip below. »

Author: Emma Withington

Mark Hamill presents his second, in what looks to be a series, of Donald Trump tweets read by his alter ego: The Joker. This week, it’s The Joker in ‘Return of the Trumpster’.

The Joker relaying the USA’s President Elect’s tweets carries terrifying parallels, but also maintains a humorous spin via political satire. This week’s Trumpster voice clip focuses on Donald Trump’s Meryl Streep Twitter rant, following her speech at the Golden Globes.

Meryl Streep commented on an incident from 2015, when Trump imitated a disabled reporter: “It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, »

Mark Hamill's Joker Reads Donald Trump's Meryl Streep Tweets

15 January 2017 2:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Mark Hamill decided to reprise his iconic role as The Joker from Batman: The Animated Series in order to get a little political. He decided to take some of president-elect Donald Trump's tweets and read them as the Clown Prince of Crime and the internet absolutely loved it, even if many found it unsettling how well it worked. Now Mark Hamill has done the same for Trump's rant against Oscar winner and Hollywood legend Meryl Streep.

For those who maybe missed it, Meryl Streep went after Donald Trump during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes after being awarded the Cecil B. DeMille award. The new Potus didn't take very kindly to that and went on a pretty aggressive Twitter rant against here. Just in case you need a refresher, here is what Donald Trump had to say about Meryl Streep.

15 January 2017 4:46 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Mark Hamill recently shared a reading of Donald Trump's new year's Tweet in the style of his animated take on The Joker, and it proved to be so popular that he promised there'd be more to come. Sure enough, the Star Wars: Episode VIII actor was as good as his word, and now we have the Clown Prince of Crime's version of Trump's rather predictable response to Meryl Streep's scathing indictment of the Peotus at the Golden Globes. Have a listen below, and whatever your feelings on this may be, please keep it civil in the comments.

Mark Hamill is at it again, with the iconic “Star Wars” star once again reviving his hilariously creepy voice of the Joker — which he’s provided for numerous animated TV series, movies, video games and the like since the early 1990s — to take a strip off Donald Trump.

Mark Hamill is continuing to troll President-elect Donald Trump.

Last week, Hamill debuted The Trumpster, a supervillain alter ego who reads Trump tweets in the voice of The Joker, who Hamill voices in the DC animated universe.

On Saturday, Hamill shared audio of himself reading the tweets Trump aimed at Meryl Streep after she was critical of him in her Golden Globes speech, which became the most buzz-about moment from Sunday's awards show.

Well, USA Today has now posted an interview with the filmmaker, during which he offered a few more tidbits on December’s hugely-anticipated sequel.

“I want it to be a blast and to be funny and to be a ride the way The Force Awakens and the original Star Wars movies were,” said Johnson. “I wanted to know more about each of them, and that doesn’t just mean information or backstory,” Johnson says. “Figure out what’s the most difficult thing each of them could be challenged with now — let’s throw that »

Carrie Fisher's Princess Leia Will Not Be 'Digitally Recreated' in Future 'Star Wars' Films

13 January 2017 5:25 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lucasfilm Denies That Carrie Fisher Will Return As A CGI’d Character In ‘Star Wars’

13 January 2017 5:18 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is borderline astonishing.  Lucasfilm Never responds to rumors. For just one example, in a recent Nerdist podcast with Mark Hamill, the actor told Chris Hardwick about finding real “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” spoilers online, alerting the company to the website and Lucasfilm essentially saying, “eh, if we do respond, we’ll give it credence. Let it be.”

But tonight, in the face of recent rumors that have suggested Carrie Fisher could return as General Leia Organa in CGI’d form, Lucasfilm has spoke out to squash the falsehood.

Star Wars 8 Has a Title, Do We Already Know It?

10 January 2017 4:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most Star Wars fans are still riding pretty high from the excitement that came with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but as the high winds down, more attention is being directed at Star Wars: Episode VIII. We don't know much about the movie right now. In fact, we don't even know the title, but director Rian Johnson does and he has for quite some time now.

The director, who also wrote the script for the next installment of the Star Wars saga, recently spoke with USA Today about the follow-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens and naturally, the movie's title came up. As it turns out, Rian Johnson has known what the title will be for Star Wars: Episode VIII for a long time and he is just as eager to get it out into the world as we are to know what it is.

The Lego Batman Movie: New TV Spots!

10 January 2017 10:10 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

When The Lego Movie came out, I paid it no attention figuring it was just a kid's movie, (you would think I would have learned my lesson from downplaying Frozen) and it was at least a year before I got bored and gave it a shot. Much to my surprise, I Loved the movie, and I was particularly enthralled by a certain cowl wearing character from the film; Lego Batman.

By the way, I see what the creators did with him. They parodied all the negative aspects of Batman, cranked it up to 11, and came out with one of the most self-absorbed, narcissistic, pain in the arse characters ever to be invented. But if you are Lego Batman, you are shunned by your fellow Justice Leaguers and your only friend may be someone more obsessive than you are. Check out the brand new TV spots below from The Lego Batman Movie »

Johnson Promises To Go Deeper With Star Wars: Episode VIII Than The Force Awakens Did

10 January 2017 7:35 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

I've said it many times, but- to me- Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a table-setter. It introduced us to new characters, surrounded them with enough spectacle and "classic Star Wars" trappings to keep things moving, and it laid the groundwork for Episodes VIII and IX to really flesh things out. While certain impatient fans were unable to see all of the seeds that were planted in The Force Awakens, and instead have labeled Rey a "Mary Sue" and Kylo Ren a "whiny b*tch," a great many of us saw the potential for so much more from these characters.

Rian Johnson counts himself as a part of the latter group.

While discussing what he wanted to do with Star Wars: Episode VIII after seeing where The Force Awakens left its new protagonists, here's what the writer-director told Varity about his goals for the next film in the new »
