Mark Hamill

 

  1. Richard Romanus, Wizards, 1976.    George Lucas was a Ralph Bakshi fan  and heartily recommended Hamill to the toon-maker for the (two minute!) voice of Sean. He was also auditioned fr voicing the hideous elf, Weehawk. Bakshi’s wife and daughter) voiced the Fairy Mother and the Fairy Girl.
  2. Grant Goodeve, Eight Is Enough, TV, 1977-1981.    The Force wasn’t with Hamill.  He’d signed up for the sitcom, hated it becoming more sit than com, stuck to his contract… until a car smash ruined his face.   What else when the pilot was called:  Never Try Eating Nectarines Since Juice May Dispense. Goodeve (sounds like a Star Wars character) took over as the oldest of the kids, although he was younger than the three older actors playing his siblings. 
  3. Lorne Greene, Battlestar Galactica, TV, 1978-1979.    Before the producers went older and put Bonanza into space (Greene was 62), ole Sykwalker (27) was (obviously) offered the command of theblatant Star Wars clonethat only found a real identity in 2004-8 version.
  4. Alan Arkin, The Last Unicorn,1982.  Both Star Wars heroes - Hamill and Harrison  Ford  (plus Dustin Hoffman) - were considered to voice the wizard Schmendrick - The word  derives from the Yiddish slang, schlemiel, or unlucky bungler. Mark’s post-Lucas career was nearly 100% TVillain voices: Batman’s Joker, The Hulk’sGargoyle, Spider-Man’sHobgoblin plus The Trickster, Wolverine and the Wing Commander, Swat Kats video games.
  5. Miles O’Keeffe, Sword of the Valiant: The Legend of Sir Gawain and The Green Knight, 1984.   Stephen Weeks always wanted Star-Mark as Gawain. The studio did not. If you could call Cannon a studio...after rejecting Mark for a cheap, muscular, pretty boy who could not act. That was the Golan & Globus way.
  6. Tom Hulce, Amadeus, 1984.       Considered after playing the role on Broadway. And Hulce did rather play Mozart at warp speed! 
  7. Jim Carrey, Batman Forever, 1994.
  8. Chris Burns, Zombieland, 2009.      As the police office zombie,when the idea was to have several celebrity zombs - Matthew McConaughey, Joe Pesci, Patrick Swayze, Jean-Claude Van Damme, etc.
