Mark Hamill to Receive Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

According to Variety our hero Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill, will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on March 8th in a ceremony that will be held in front of the El Capitan Theatre.

 

After several television roles, Hamill landed the role of Luke Skywalker in George Lucas’ Star Wars that made him a superstar at lightspeed. Leading the ceremony will be Lucas, Hamill’s co-star Harrison Ford, as well as Leron Gubler, president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. The ceremony starts at 11:30 AM.

 

 

“‘Star Wars’ fans will be over the moon hearing their idol Mark Hamill is going to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. We are proud to add this extraordinary actor on our historic Walk of Fame,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies, in a statement.

 

 

 

In addition to his most famous role as Luke Skywalker, Hamill has performed in other recent movies (Kingsman: The Secret Service) and television shows (The Flash), as well as being a prolific vocal performer. Hamill lent his voice to one of the most iconic iterations of the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series.

 

 

Hamill will receive the 2,630th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He recently reprized his role of Luke Skywalker in Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi. Fans in the area who want to attend can read the details here. For the rest of us, there will be a live stream available.

 

It is quite surprising that Mark Hamill didn’t already have a star of his own after a four-plus decade acting career, but better late than never. We at Star Wars News Net and fans everywhere already knew Mark was a star, and now he will have his own to prove it (likely in his usually charming self-deprecating manner). May the Force be with him… always!

    For God’s sake, can he just be gracious without the anti-Trump comment?!

      No because Trump is the proof that casually criticizing him obviously doesn’t get the point across in America. You have to hammer it in until it sinks and doesn’t happen again. Aaaaaanyway….

        I feel bad for you, because he is going to be re-elected in 2020, and you’ll have simmered in anger and hatred all that time for nothing. Best to get on with your life.

      He’s allowed to express his opinion just like everyone else, whether you agree with his opinions or not.

        Of course anyone can express their opinion. But it would be nice if he could celebrate his star without angering half of Star Wars fans. Because believe it or not, many people like Trump, and lots of those people are Star Wars fans. Get it?

          I don’t really think he cares about angering Trump supporters. I know I don’t. Also, I’m sure there’s some wonderful statistics to back up your claims /s

            Yep, lots of people don’t care about angering half the country. You and the rest can stew in anger and let it eat at you from the inside, or you can choose a more productive and happy life. I don’t care which you do, frankly.

            Approval rating in the 30’s, deep red states flipping faster than pancakes at iHop. Lost popular vote by 4 million. Now, I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound to me like half the country likes Trump. In fact, it sounds like 48% of the country liked Trump, and that number has declined based on approval ratings. Also, how do you know the political views of millions of Star Wars fans? Just because you yourself support Trump doesn’t mean that half the fanbase also must support Trump.

            I guess facts are quite repellent for you. Trump’s approval rating, as of today, Feb. 22, is 48%. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/trump_administration/prez_track_feb22

            I understand that many geeks and nerds (I count myself among them) live quite isolated lives these days, so you surround yourself with people and information that fits your biases and opinions. But you might want to enlighten yourself about other people’s opinions from time to time. You might learn something.

            Dude, you looked at one poll. That is cherry picking facts. Quinnipac has him at 37%. Fox News has him at 45%. The average out of all major polls is 40%. Cherry picking facts makes you look like an idiot. This is the problem I have when people try to talk politics. If you’re going to talk politics, back up your statement with real hard facts, because if you don’t you look stupid.

            I’m not cherry-picking anything. Rasmussen is considered the most accurate — during the Obama years as well. They came the closest in predicting the 2016 elections, whereas the ones you mentioned were so far off it was laughable. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/elections/election_2016/rasmussen_reports_calls_it_right Again, your own biased view of the world does not let you see objectively. Just trying to offer some friendly advice bro. Trump is not the unpopular person you personally believe him to be. But if makes you happy to believe in that (like one would believe in the Easter Bunny), then go for it.

            Why is it that Trump supporters refuse to see facts? I suppose the Russia investigation is still a witch hunt too. FFS.

            Again, your biased view is the opposite of reality. The Russia investigation is showing how the desperate hopes of the left to bring down Trump through a Russia collusion narrative was preposterous and actually hypocritical. Turns out that the media and the left actually helped the Russians by advertising and participating in the fake protests that Russian social media people set up. There’s your Russian collusion. https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/rich-noyes/2018/02/19/flashback-cnn-and-msnbcs-enthusiastic-coverage-russian-sponsored-anti

            Um, so which facts in the article do you dispute? The article simply points out that Russians concocted protests, and then shows actual clips of CNN and MSNBC promoting and reporting from those same protests. Do you actually expect CNN and MSNBC to report these stories? You can’t be that dense.

            I’m honestly not going to waste my time arguing with you on this anymore. You’re too far right. I’ll never get through to you. I value facts too much, you’ll never get through to me. If you want to talk about Star Wars, I’ll be glad to talk with you, but I’m not putting any more energy into arguing with someone who is clearly so far right that I know will never agree with anything political that I say.

            So far I have yet to hear a single fact from you, so I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’m the one who apparently is wasting my time, since I’m doing nothing but presenting facts with links to back them up. You lefties can’t do that with the deficit of reality at your disposal.

            That’s what I mean right there. You won’t consider anything I say to be a fact, and I won’t consider anything you say to be a fact. You’ve linked to newsbusters and cherry picked a poll that supports your narrative. That’s the state of right wing politics today. It’s sad. I used to be a Republican you know. I voted for Bush Jr. I supported Romney. The Republican party used to stand for something. Now it just exists to counter the Democrats and push false narratives. This is why I’m Independent now. I have too many Republican values to be Democrat, and I agree with the Democrats social policies too much to be Republican. A centrist like me, who only observes and takes in facts from unbiased media sources (meaning no, I don’t watch CNN or MSNBC, or Fox News), has no place in todays political landscape. The right won’t accept facts. The left is wrong on so many fronts it’s exhausting. Just like this conversation. It’s exhausting. Like I said, either let’s talk about Star Wars, or let’s just end this.

            Jesus. BBC, Politifact, NPR. Also I presented a fact that you cherry picked a poll most relevant to your narrative, and that you linked to newsbusters which is a far-right deep state conspiracy theorist site. Facts don’t have to be links. Facts can just be true statements, like if I say the sky is blue. While we’re at it… what shape is the Earth?

    Didn’t Darth Vader, 3PO and R2-D2 get stars in the 70s? Like, not Prowse, Daniels or Baker, the characters themselves.

    Shame the standards for getting a Star are so low.

    That has absolutely no connection to Mark. He actually deserves one.

    I am surprised he didn´t have one yet.
