Skywalker As The Joker? It's No Joke

Original STAR WARS star MARK HAMILL has joined the shortlist of favourites to play THE JOKER in the BATMAN BEGINS sequel.

The actor, who played LUKE SKYWALKER in Star Wars, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and RETURN OF THE JEDI, has become a fan favourite to play Batman's colourful foe.

He joins CRISPIN GLOVER and Aussie actor LACHY HULME on the three-strong internet shortlist.

Hamill became an obvious choice for some Batman fans after voicing The Joker for the Batman cartoon series.

A spokesman for top Batman website DARKHORIZONS.COM points out, "The net basically picked CHRISTIAN BALE to play Batman, so who knows."

Batman Begins opens across America and Europe this week (ends17JUN05).

It'd simply be awesome if Mark Hamill played the Joker. I adore what he did with the character in the animated series and I know he'd do a great job bringing it all to screen.--- Sienn
