MARK HAMILL, the 59-year-old American actor and producer best known for his role as 'Luke Skywalker' in the original STAR WARS trilogy, has confirmed himself to provide the voice of 'The Joker' in the forthcoming 'Batman' video game 'Arkham City', reports
Hamill has worked as a voice actor on a number of high-profile projects in recent years, including a cameo in 'Futurama', and he voiced 'The Joker' in the highly successful Batman game 'Arkham Asylum' in 2009. Speaking about his reasons for working on the game's sequel, the 59-year-old admitted that he had originally planned to "go out on a high note" following the 'Asylum's' massive success, but suggested that the "powers that be" in Hollywood did not take kindly to him wanting to walk away from the project.
Hamill was speaking at last night's (7th December 2010) premiere for new movie 'The Fighter' in Los Angeles. The film, which stars MARK WAHLBERG and CHRISTIAN BALE is directed by DAVID O RUSSELL and follows the story of a boxer 'Mickey Ward' and his quest to turn professional. The STAR WARS actor was there to support his friends ERIC JOHNSON and PAUL TAMASY who worked on the movie as writers.
