  • Mark Hamill - Washed-Out Has-Been Punk Displaying Hate To A 3-Year Old

    Mark Hamill was awfully lucky to be cast in the 1970s as Luke Skywalker. He never really had great acting talent. He was not well-liked nor was he disliked. Why he was chosen is really about youthful boyish looks and low budget bookings, as well as his blond hair, and a tenor voice that could read lines with the right inflection. But there were many others that could do the same but the film industry was in the crap house and there weren't many choices on the meager budget for the first Starwars episode. Lucas was not established when...

  • Star Wars Mark Hamill “Luke Skywalker Didn’t Die A Virgin”

    [Mark] Hamill can't officially confirm or deny whether Luke died a virgin, it does bring the expanded Star Wars universe into question. Star Wars Legends of course introduced Luke's wife named Mara Jade, who is a fan favorite character from the Star Wars novels. Together they had one child named Ben Skywalker, although neither Mara Jade nor their son have been introduced in the movies thus far and Star Wars Legends was removed from canon following Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm. After the title reveal of Episode IX and the fact that J.J. Abrams recently said there is more to learn about Rey's parentage, the truth behind Luke's...

    I’ve previously written about how celebrities are ruining Twitter with their political and hate speech. For my last post of 2018, I’ve compiled a special list of Hollywood has-beens who are desperately trying to remain relevant despite Hollywood careers that are well beyond their expiration dates. 10. Rosie O'Donnell I guess she’s a celebrity… or was. I don’t know. She’s been in a few movies you’ve probably seen. The only two that come to mind are Sleepless in Seattle and A League of Their Own… but for sure, she had a briefly successful stint in Hollywood in the 1990s as...

    You mean Mark Hamill didn’t like having his signature heroic character end up as a guy hiding out from the universe and dying alone? Go figure. With anger and scorn bubbling up from the fanbase over Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the first Jedi (so to speak) says he sympathizes with them while reminding them that it wasn’t his choice. However, it might be just desserts for his generation, Hamill says: 'IT WAS TOUGH ON ME': #MarkHamill says he strongly disagreed with the story arc for #LukeSkywalker in #StarWarsTheLastJedi, created by writer-director #RianJohnson. pic.twitter.com/iR1RrP9JSU— AP Entertainment (@APEntertainment) June 28,...

    Big Hollywood (Breitbart) ^ | February 6, 2018 | Dr. Susan Berry
    Comedian Sarah Silverman said during a telethon to support abortions that a pro-life conscience law “would make her want to eat an aborted fetus.” Silverman made the comment during a game of “abortion charades” – part of a “telethon” titled Life Is a Living Nightmare: A Telethon to Fix It, hosted by the Lady Parts Justice League. As LifeNews reports, Silverman and colleague Lizz Winstead, creator of the Daily Show, hosted the telethon to raise money for abortions. The event also featured an interview with abortionist Willie Parker who claims in his recent book there is a moral argument for...

    Alfie Curtis, who played the wanted outlaw Dr. Evazan in “Star Wars,” died this week at age 87, according to multiple media reports. His cause of death is not yet known. “Star Wars” fans know Dr. Evazan as the man who attempted to intimidate Luke Skywalker when he visited the Mos Eisley cantina early in the famous 1977 film. “You just watch yourself. We’re wanted men,” he famously warned the future Jedi before he was chopped down by Obi-Wan Kenobi’s lightsaber. “I have the death sentence on 12 systems.” According to the Star Wars website, Evazan was once a promising...

    After MSNBC counterterrorism analyst Malcolm Nance confronted Breitbart editor Alex Marlow on Friday's Real Time show, demanding that he retract an article from last April which accurately highlighted Nance "nominating" a Donald Trump property for a terrorist attack, actor Mark Hamill was so impressed with the liberal MSNBC analyst that the Star Wars icon praised him on Twitter and dubbed him a "Jedi master." After MSNBC's Joy Reid highlighted Hamill's tweet on her AM Joy show on Sunday, Hamill also threw some Twitter praise toward the far-left MSNBC host. At 11:46 a.m. ET on Sunday's AM Joy, host Reid excitedly...

    Celebrities keep using the red carpet to promote a group that sheds more innocent blood through abortion than any other group in the United States. On Sunday at the Tony Awards, several stars wore pins and ribbons to show their support of the Planned Parenthood abortion chain and the pro-abortion American Civil Liberties Union. The two groups often work together to challenge laws that protect unborn babies and moms from abortion. Variety reports “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill wore a blue ribbon to support the ACLU, while Hollywood icon Sally Field, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” star Rachel Bloom and actress Olivia Wilde...

    Odds are, the story has completely changed, but who knows for sure. Ah! Decades-old spoiler alert! Mark Hamill may have spilled the beans about his iconic Star Wars character years ago while doing an interview with the late film critic Gene Siskel around the time Return of the Jedi was released. In the unearthed interview, Hamill said George Lucas explained to him his layout for the prequels and also told Hamill to be ready, because he had plans for Skywalker many years down the road.

    December 16, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Many Star Wars fans flocking to see Rogue One this weekend don't know the dark side of Mark Hamill, the actor who plays Luke Skywalker. When Los Angeles model Maegan Chen found out earlier this year that she was pregnant with Hamill's grandbaby, Hamill and his son Nathan pressured her to have an abortion. But despite the attempted coercion, Maegan courageously resisted, and her baby, Autumn, was just born and is thriving. Maegan was unavailable for comment on this story, but she discussed the situation with LifeSiteNews for a previous report. She found out she...

    Mark Hamill has told The Sun that his Star Wars character, Luke Skywalker, could be gay.Hamill, who played the farmboy-turned-Jedi Knight in the three original Star Wars films and returned to the role in last year's The Force Awakens, said: 'Fans are writing and asking all these questions: "I’m bullied in school… I’m afraid to come out." They say to me: "Could Luke be gay?"''I’d say it is meant to be interpreted by the viewer. If you think Luke is gay, of course he is. You should not be ashamed of it. Judge Luke by his character, not by who...

    At the time, the other cast members of the new Star Wars flick were taping an appearance on "The Graham Norton Show," Hamill told The Independent newspaper. "Star Wars movies are meant to be a couple of hours of diversion from reality, and we need that," the newspaper quoted him as saying. "They are optimistic and hopeful stories." But, he said, such things are "very trivial," compared with bringing comfort to ailing kids. The hospital's staff thanked Hamill in a tweet: "Thanks so much for coming to visit our patients Mark - everyone absolutely loved it :)" As could be...

    Bad movies only get better with expert heckling. "Mystery Science Theater 3000," aka MST3K, riffs on truly horrible films with the help of a human and his robot buddies. So it only makes sense that its fans have put their money where their laughs are and helped raise millions of dollars for a new season. With this successful Kickstarter campaign almost completed, fans of the original MST3K will have a chance to watch new episodes with a new cast, new cameos and a new writing staff. Since this is a continuation of the series and not a reboot, they also...

    Actor MARK HAMILL believes he is the world's worst STAR WARS expert - and knows very little about the movies that made him famous. The film star - who played Luke Skywalker in the original science fantasy epics - has only seen each of the movies once, and is baffled by fans' obsession with the cult series. He tells British radio station Heart: "I have failed Star Wars trivia tests. People come up to me at conventions and use terms that I've never heard of. "Props from the film that we didn't have names for now have names - Dustbin...
