We caught up with Mark Hamill at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival where he was promoting his role in the film Brigsby Bear. He also talked to us about voice acting, wanting to be in radio, The Last Jedi title and his request for President Donald Trump quotes from fans that he could turn out in The Joker voice!
Sold to Sony Picture Classics at Sundance Film Festival.
About the film:
After 25 years of secluded existence with his protective parents in their isolated, off-the-grid home, James is tossed out into a new life in relatively daunting Cedar Hills, Utah. As his world upends, the most shocking revelation to James is that he’s the only person who has ever watched his favorite television program, Brigsby Bear Adventures. Struggling to adjust to the show’s abrupt end, he begins to see Brigsby’s lessons as his only way to make sense of a big, scary new world, and James decides to make a movie to end Brigsby’s story—and re-begin his own.
Kyle Mooney (who also co-wrote the film with Kevin Costello) portrays imaginative man-boy James with infectious earnestness, imbuing warmth and humor into James’s efforts to make friends and integrate into his new reality. First-time director Dave McCary balances off-beat comedy with a unique ode to the joys of filmmaking, featuring standout supporting performances by Greg Kinnear—as a friendly detective bitten by the acting bug—and Saturday Night Live alums Andy Samberg and Michaela Watkins.
Here are all of the “Trumpster” tweets voiced by Mark Hamill as The Joker. (Note: They are named by the only text he has in the descriptions.)
