Along with his iconic role as Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill has filled the decades in between Star Wars films by embarking on an accomplished career as a voice actor. His latest gig? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Hamill already holds one of the most iconic roles in animated history with his turn as the Joker in Batman The Animated Series, and now he’s set to take on the mantle of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles villain Kavaxas in the Nickelodeon animated series in an upcoming episode. Sadly, not much is actually known about the character, though the actor did reveal a piece of concept art showing off the “Demodragon of the Underworld” (gotta love that name, but the way). 

It’s great to see Hamill having a bit of a career resurgence to go along with his Star Wars return, and along with his gig as the Trickster on The Flash, we seem poised for a Hamill renaissance in the coming years. Heck, he’s even bringing his Joker back to life for the upcoming Killing Joke animated film, so he’s seriously firing on all cylinders these days.
