Mark Hamill celebrates 60th birthday: Luke Skywalker still going strong

  • Pop2it
Yes, Luke Skywalker turns 60 today! Iconic actor Mark Hamill hasn't done extensive film work since the phenomenon of the original "Star Wars" trilogy, but his career has remained steadily successful.

"Star Wars" fans may be surprised to know that Hamill has voiced such diverse characters as Turtle from "My Friends Tigger & Pooh," Stickybeard from "Codename: Kids Next Door," and several roles in Seth Green's "Robot Chicken."

This fall, we'll see him in a new role on the "Chuck" final season premiere. He'll play Jean-Claude, a wealthy thief who tangles with Zachary Levi's title character. "It was a blast!" executive producer Chris Fedak tells TV Guide. "We couldn't be more excited to have Mark join us. He's the perfect combination of funny and villainous to get us started with Season 5."

'Eureka' gets animated for holiday special

Syfy's series "Eureka" is planning another holiday-themed episode for December, but this one will look a little different than last year's special.

Ok, a lot different: The holiday episode will be animated.

The story for the show has a machine designed to turn Eureka's Main Street into a postcard-perfect winter setting going haywire, turning everyone into cartoon versions of themselves. Other rules of cartoon worlds will also apply, so get ready for talking animals and inanimate objects.

The episode, titled "Do You See What I See," will also feature several guest voices. "The Big Bang Theory" star Jim Parsons will provide the voice of Sheriff Carter's (Colin Ferguson) Jeep; Edward James Olmos ("Battlestar Galactica") will play the leader of a pack of sled dogs; and Chris Parnell ("30 Rock") will reprise his role from last year's holiday special as Dr. Noah Drummer.

Curious Pictures ("Codename: Kids Next Door") will produce the animation segments,
