Comic Con 2011: Mark Hamill Will Play A Villain On Chuck
Chuck returns to NBC on Fridays this fall, and when it does, itíll come with a few surprises. Chuck will face off against the Joker, or at least a man who played the Joker. Today at the San Diego Comic Con Chuckís Chris Fedak announced that this new season of the show will involve a few guest stars, and among them will be Mark Hamill as a villain.
You probably know Hamill best as Luke Skywalker but since Star Wars heís quietly carved out a career for himself as one of the best voice actors working in animation. Before Heath Ledger tackled the character in The Dark Knight his portrayal of the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series was widely regarded as the definitive take on the character. In other words, when it comes to playing a bad heís really, really good.
Exactly what kind of bad guy heíll play on Chuck remains to be seen, hopefully theyíll have the good sense to let him do some sort of weird, evil voice as part of his character. But as a former Chuck fan whoís sort of fallen out of love with the show in recent seasons, the thought of Hamill playing the bad guy is enough to get me interested in tuning back in again.
Look for Chuck on NBC Fridays at 8pm EST.
