I love Mark Hamill, don’t get me wrong, but age can often do not great things to everyone. As such, when Hamill was cast as an older version of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Episode VII, I was a bit worried as he hadn’t been looking particularly heroic for a while from all the pictures I’d seen of him, and I wasn’t sure how he’d slide back into a role like that.
Well, it seems that’s changed. The above photo was taken by Hamill’s son Nathan, showing his dad outside Ep. VII filming with his “contractually obligated beard.” He’s slimmed down and bulked up in the right places, and morphed into total badass mode once more. I’m sorry I ever doubted you, Mark. You shame me with your awesomeness.
