What’s a Jedi to do when he dies? Grab a job voicing a mass murdering doll, that’s what!
Mark Hamill has joined the cast of the new Child’s Play remake. The iconic actor will supply the voice of Chucky in a cast that already includes Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry, and Gabriel Bateman.
The announcement came today on the Orion Panel presentation at WonderCon according to Deadline.
Hamill is an accomplished voice actor. In fact, his Joker on Batman: The Animated Adventures might rival his role of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars saga!
Lars Klevberg will direct the Child’s Play reboot from a script by Tyler Burton Smith.
Hamill took to Twitter to talk about his new friend. Check out his video below!
“People let me tell you ’bout my best friend…”?
