Hamill played Luke Skywalker in George Lucas' original trilogy but little has been heard of him since Return of The Jedi in 1983.

Who writes this shiat? I've been listening to his voice-acting for decades.

This. Just started re-watching B:TAS last night, as a matter of fact. Still don't know how I never read the credits when the show was on TV and didn't notice THAT little gem.

He looks like he has aged normally, not Hollywood style.

Friggin' Daily Fail. I hate that site, yet I get sucked into its black hole if I even click on a link.

Humans age? WTF??

The Daily Fail loves these "shocking revelation!! The passage of time makes stars UGLY" stories.

What a complete waste of good bandwidth..

A 60-year-old man no longer looks like he's 20?! OMG!
 
2012-07-14 09:23:48 AM  
Subby's going to look funny when he's 60 years old.
 
2012-07-14 09:26:45 AM  
Harrisom Ford is 70 and awesome.

Mark Hamill is 60 and old.

Carrie Fisher is 50isha dn fatty fatty never gonna wear the slave outfit again.

Amidoingitrite?

Hamill could voiceover Ledger to make TDK more awesome.

And growing up with Mel Blanc and June Foray, all hail to the voiceover artist.

Isn't this the second time the Mail's run the "Mark Hamil looks old" story?
 
2012-07-14 09:28:49 AM  
Imagine if Lucas HAD done eps. 7, 8, & 9. Supposedly he once entertained a notion of another trip around the block with the old cast just for fun. Ford at 70, Hamill at 60, ...Carrie Fisher...

*shudder*

I think it would have been worse than the prequels.

Hamill played Luke Skywalker in George Lucas' original trilogy but little has been heard of him since Return of The Jedi in 1983.
He gained a reputation as a prolific voice actor and had an acclaimed role as the Joker in the Emmy Award winning Batman: The Animated Series. But recently on-camera roles have streamed in for the actor, who just finished filming TV movie The Halloween Pranksta, set for release later this year. He is also set to star in 2013 action comedy Virtually Heroes and is believed to have been cast as Tantalus in the highly-anticipated action adventure Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, which follows the epic journey of the son of Poseidon on his search for a mythical Golden Fleece.


apparently, "little has been heard of him" means the exact opposite of what i thought it did.

What's the deal with George's tube neck? Is it a goiter or is he growing a Jabba in there?
 
2012-07-14 09:41:47 AM  
But does he look good in a bikini? Because what I'm really interested in is which stars have "hot bikini bods" versus the "OMG, not hots".

That entire multimillion dollar industries have grown around the insecurity of vapid morons is one of the saddest truths of our species.

Chosen of God, indeed.

Mail Online has no responsibility to do research or be accurate.
You greatly overestimate their powers.

When 60 years old you turn, look as good you will not. Hehe.

I'd say he actually looks good for 60.
 
2012-07-14 10:18:12 AM  
The most amazing thing about Mark Hamill was the fact that during the height of his Star Wars fame, he appeared in an incredibly strange film called Britannia Hospital, where he played a sound technician stoned off his gourd.

StrikitRich: Repeat from last year, right?

I know a guy who was in a severe car accident around the same time as Mark, and underwent a really revolutionary procedure at the time, where they actually peel back the skin off your face, set the facial fractures, then put the skin back on. He was warned then that as he aged, it would likely start to look strange..... It looks very much like Mark... where their eyes are sunken in, probably because thats where they had to cut around. You can even see the remnants of Mark's surgery at the beginning of Empire, which they wrote into the story.
 
2012-07-14 10:59:46 AM  
Oddly enough he looks like Palpatine

"Hey kids, it's Mark Hamill!"
 
2012-07-14 11:25:37 AM  
"Mark Hamill, following a disfiguring car accident, has been largely reclusive for the past 30 years, rarely showing his face in public. Now that he's finally overcoming his discomfort at being seen, let's all point and laugh at how old and fat and gross and old and wrinkly and old he is! Ewww!"
 
2012-07-14 11:27:33 AM  
Jeez, subby! Don't scare me like that.
 
2012-07-14 11:31:45 AM  
Id go so far as to say that the reason he never leaves his mansion is because of shiatheads like the author of this article who criticize the appearance of a 60 year old man.

/BEST JOKER EVER
 
2012-07-14 11:41:27 AM  
He's 60 years old and has a successful career plus he still has a lot of fans. Why you make me white knight Luke Skywalker, Daily Mail?
 
2012-07-14 11:42:41 AM  
I am perfectly aware that Time waits for no one (not even me) but farking allah!, Hamill have a little pride.

You're easily 30 pounds overweight and that's not good for your heart, cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar OR appearance.
 
2012-07-14 11:48:42 AM  
And one last thing--

I'll bet it feels immeasurably better to wake up as a 60-year old Mark Hamill and all that entails, than it does waking up as some choad that writes for the Daily Fail.

Hamill's a great voice actor and created the best Joker ever.

I'm still hoping for a sequel to Corvette Summer. It can be something like Town Car Winter. You know, joy riding kids steal the guy's custom Town car from the assisted living community, and he has to go find it. Along the way he can hook up with a geriatric nurse or maybe the transit van driver who might be played by Queen Latifah.
 
2012-07-14 12:45:39 PM  
Good grief, Mark looks fine. I've got friends younger who haven't been in any accidents who look worse.
At least he isn't pushing up daisies.
/wish I was kidding.
 
2012-07-14 12:52:57 PM  
I enjoy how people think actors should look like they did 30 years ago.

Get a life, people age.

Or was that the joke?

sure haven't: I'd say he actually looks good for 60.


Exactly my thought.

Jesus give the guy credit for not embarrassing himself to stay in the limelight or delude himself with awful plastic surgery. The guy is clearly enjoying his later years and still isn't above going to San Diego to hang out with a bunch of nerds and do the same voice and sign the same autographs he has for decades. Cool guy in my book.
