Luke Skywalker is earnest, fiercely serious and seems to lack the sense of humor of, say, Han Solo.
But the force behind Skywalker, actor Mark Hamill, is as funny as Jabba the Hutt is fat.
Hamill’s mark on comedy is in his writings to fans on old Star Wars trading cards. He likes to quickly craft a funny sentence to go with the scene on the card, followed by an artfully penned signature.
In a card titled The Search for Vader, Hamill writes: “This Vader guy is a loser . . . Hope he doesn’t have kids!”
