A certain Jedi Knight is trading in his light saber for fangs in an upcoming episode of What We Do In The Shadows.

The FX series, now in its second season has been a riot and one of the funniest things on TV. Mark Hamill will take on the role of an enemy from Lazlo’s (Matt Berry) past who returns causing Lazlo to head for the hills.

When speaking with Entertainment Weekly Mark Hamill said, “not only was [what we do in the shadows] on par with the film, but it added elements that I had never heard before like the addition of the energy vampire.”

Mark Hamill continued excitedly, “I would’ve been happy just visiting the set, they certainly didn’t need me to come in and mess it up somehow. But I thought I would check out the script and see what they had in mind. I expected the role to be like the next door neighbor or someone who works at the Department of Motor Vehicles. When I read I was going to play a vampire, I just about shot out of my chair. What a great honor!”
