You won't recognize Mark Hamill in 'Sushi Girl'

You won't recognize Mark Hamill in 'Sushi Girl'

In the latest movie, "Sushi Girl," Mark Hamill plays an ex-convict that looks nothing like his iconic character Luke Skywalker.

With horn-rimmed glasses and shoulder-length hair, Hamill shares one very tense dinner with the criminals who landed his character in jail.

But going incognito is nothing new for the actor. Hamill has made a name for himself in the voice acting community, first for playing the Joker in 1992's "Batman: The animated series," and later on for contributing to "Avatar: The Last Airbender,"and "Metalocalypse."

He's also got two English versions of Hayao Miyazaki films under his belt.

"It's a rhythmic thing," Hamill said about dubbing the original Japanese versions of Studio Ghibli's "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" and "Castle in the Sky."

"I just have a facility for it," he said of matching the animated lip movements of his characters.

Hamill sat down with CNN Geek Out to discuss all things Comic-Con, animation and more.

CNN Geek Out: Why do  you think Japanese animation can be so much more serious in tone than American animation?

Mark Hamill: The adult themes are much stronger in Japanese animation. My dad was in the Navy so we got transferred to Japan and I went to Yokohama High School for two years, my junior and senior year of high school.

And I realized it's not all "Speed Racer."

I lived in Yukosuka, which was about an hour away from where the school was. If you missed the school bus, you had to take the train out. And lots of guys (on the train) were reading Japanese comic books. When you say comic book in America, people think of Mickey Mouse, and Archie. It has a connotation of juvenile. But (manga) did popular spy detectives and melodrama, just in that form. It was very common to see people on the subway reading manga.

Geek Out: 'Sushi Girl' is a really adult story. Do you think people are ready to see you in such a role?

Hamill: I think so. It's unlike a lot of the things that I get offered. But it's very much in the Tarantino world. It's gritty and I liked the way they didn't glamorize crime. These are seedy guys with low moral standards. It makes crime look ugly and sordid. I just loved that the character I was proposed to play was so out there.

Geek Out: What was your first impression of the voice-acting community?

Hamill: As a character actor, animation was a revelation to me. Every character actor wants to lose himself in the role to the point where there's no "Mark" left; it's just a character. In animation you're 90 percent there anyway because they can't see you. That pretty much defines character acting.

And you get to play parts that you would never get cast in for live action. Although, ironically, when I asked ("Sushi Girl" producers) "Why'd you think of me for the role of this psycho?" they said, "Well if you can do it in cartoons, we thought you could probably do it in live action." This is probably the only part I've ever gotten as a result of Joker.

Geek Out: The voice actors we've interviewed in the past, like John DiMaggio, Billy West, Phil LaMarr and Yuri Lowenthal are unabashedly enthusiastic about their nerdiness. Is that true of the whole community?

Hamill: In high school I had to hid my comic book side, my nerd side from the civilian world so they wouldn't categorize me. They would try to marginalize me for what I like. I tried to give it up, believe me. I tried to kick the habit. But there's too much I liked about it to give it up completely.

In college I found myself in a bookstore, Cherokee Books on Hollywood Boulevard, and upstairs there was a comic book room. It was a used book store - I love used book stores, I really do. But (up there) it grabbed me all over again. When I left for college I had given all my comics to my younger brother.

Geek Out: A lot of nerds do that - they hide in plain sight.

Hamill: Yeah, but here is a convention where they all let their freak flags fly. I don't know how long you've been coming here, but I was talking about this this morning. I can remember back when they announced there would be 5,000 people attending and we were all shocked. Cause when I first went, the very first Comic-Con I went to was in the basement of the Ambassador Hotel in 1971. There was probably about 15 dealers. And in another room they had a 15 millimeter projector so they could show "Flash Gordon" serials and "Metropolis."

    Mark Hamill is one of the best actors in Hollywood right now.

    I watched him in awe in a role he never got any credit for years ago right after Stars Wars wrapped up for the second movie.

    He played a villain and played it so darn well I could'nt believe it was Mark.

    Mrk has a dynamic acting range that Hollywood has never taken advantage off and that's just a waste.

    Get this guy in a big time movie as a demented villian,you will not be disappointed.

    Hamill Rules!

    For everyone commenting on how terrible Hamill looks in the picture above, you might want to note that the picture is a screen grab from the film Sushi Girl with Hamill in full make-up. This is not how he looks in real life... trust me, I just saw him less than 3 weeks ago in person.

    Saying Hamill hasn't aged well based on the pic above is like saying that you feel sorry for Robert Englund because of his burn scars becaase you've just seen A Nightmare on Elm Street.

    Ironic – Hamill is more famous of late (like, cult famous) for voicing the Joker in many Batman animated features (ok cartoons) as well as the short-lived BBC series Birds of Prey which also featured him voicing the Joker.
    In this picture he looks like Heath Ledger's jokers drunk, overweight dad.

    For voice-over cred, this article should at least give Mr. H. a shout-out for his part as Sean, the king of the woodland fairies, in Ralph Bakshi's "Wizards". Released in February of '77, it actually predates his work in Star Wars by a couple of months.

    Uh ok I give up. Is Sushi Girl an animated feature or not? It seems like 3/4 of the interview is referring to voice acting, and yet the photo of Hamill would make you believe it is a live-action movie. Why would the director make him dress up if all he's doing is standing up in front of a microphone?

    That being said, he did great work on the two Miyazaki films mentioned. I hope he would consider it again in the future.

      Says Mr. Hamil, "[T]hey said, 'Well if you can do it in cartoons, we thought you could probably do it in live action.' This is probably the only part I've ever gotten as a result of Joker." Seems like the article was pretty clear about it.

        didn't just fall off the turnip truck@35:Your welmcoe, I'm not sure if it's so much right/wrong, or more of a disagreement on on what absorption rates are. While I agree with Greg that it's defined as a set formula, and that shouldn't be changed. However, Ardell's point that when the rates get big, they don't reflect what they are trying to measure makes sense to me. It seems that it no long answers the question behind the formula, mainly How long will it take to sell all the houses on the market? (or more likely How long will it take to sell MY house ).Greg@24:I know your a big proponent of AR, and that you feel they are one of the best indicators for where things are going. With that caveat, what do you see as the problems with them? Do you agree with Ardell's assertion that they may not be as useful when sales rate slows down?

      Hamil doesnt need to do anything. He played one of the most iconiuc characters in film history and has plenty of cash. What more could you want? He made his money in one fell swoop and gets to do whatever he wants. Sounds good to me. Harrison Ford made some decent films but also got a little over exposed and made some junk movies. Whatever.

        Jeanne Posted on I think it is rather cute as is.But if you want to add a face I think the bototm protuberance as Marge put it would work better as a tail. I would suggest using that as the backside and the opposite side (the one facing away from the camera in the second picture) as the face. Maybe you could embroider some closed eyes with eyelashes? or something like: (^ ^)I wouldn't add too much detail because the simplistic suggestive details are what make it cute. That and it is much more fun to guess at what it is than to be told outright. ;DThe more I look at it, the more I want one. Ha ha. Definitely post your etsy site when you get it running!

        RE: -Oh, I agree entirely, if a hoosehuld pulling in $60k/year can't afford a home on less than 30% of their income something has gone terribly wrong. I was just pointing out that $60k/year is 150% of the median hoosehuld income for Everett. Not only should $60k/year be able to afford a home in Everett, they should be able to afford a pretty nice one.But we're talking entry level homes here, and entry level wages aren't $60k a year. There has to be movement at the bottom before there can be movement at the middle and top. Start looking at the hoosehuld income statistics for people in the first time home buyer age ranges (30-35 these days) and things start looking pretty grim.I'm saying that not only are they overpriced, they are still pretty badly overpriced. Simple law of the marketplace, you have to sell your goods at a price that the target demographic can afford. Right now the target demographic for starter homes is woefully broke, and that's unlikely to change anytime in the near future.

    Come on people! Yeah he looks bad! It's Hollywood! he's wearing makeup for god-sake. "But going incognito is nothing new for the actor". Not a total make-over but some makeup none the less. Find a picture of him today and compare it to this picture. They wanted him because of his voice acting not what he "looks" like. Yeah he's aged but in this picture there is an open gash which is not real.
    P.S. And this is the first time I've read the comments on any story that some idiot hasn't started saying something about him looking so bad and blaming Obama (or any other politician) or Obamacare. But I digress. The idiots will start now...

      Mark Hamills take on the Joker from batman, is the best performance in the roll ever. He blows heath ledger out of the water and nicholson cannot hold a match to him. Hamill plays the joker the way the joker is meant to be. His laughter convays his mood at any given moment with more expression than any other actor has managed. Mark Hamill was a genius in the roll and I am sorry to have heard that he retired the character.

      Whenever I read Batman comics, I can only hear Hamill's Joker voice when reading the characters (and Kevin Conroy's Batman as Batman, for that matter).

      I can't think of two portrayals of iconic characters that have ever come close to that. Remember when they gave the Pink Panther a voice? Yuck.

      Yes, he looks bad, but cut the guy some slack. He was in a terrible car accident after filming 1977's Star Wars that really messed up his face. That's why he looked so different from Star Wars to The Empire Strikes Back. He needed extensive facial surgery and that's not going to age well.

    Mark Hamills take on the Joker from batman, is the best performance in the roll ever. He blows heath ledger out of the water and nicholson cannot hold a match to him. Hamill plays the joker the way the joker is meant to be. His laughter convays his mood at any given moment with more expression than any other actor has managed. Mark Hamill was a genius in the roll and I am sorry to have heard that he retired the character.

      Whenever I read Batman comics, I can only hear Hamill's Joker voice when reading the characters (and Kevin Conroy's Batman as Batman, for that matter).

      I can't think of two portrayals of iconic characters that have ever come close to that. Remember when they gave the Pink Panther a voice? Yuck.

      I agree. But I wondered at the time why he wasn't being offered similar live-action roles.

    That should read, "16 millimeter projector" not "15 millimeter projector".

    So nice to know that Mark Hamill did not go down in flames like so many other actors did who got famous for one part, then had a bit of a stall in their careers. He's a real pro. : ) Glad to see him in whatever he does!

      Had the car accident not happened after the last star wars muppet movie (ewoks), he may have had more success. But, he IS Luke Skywalker. A lot of washed up actors would trade places with him in a hearbeat. Go Mark!!!

        That car accident happened right before the filming of Empire...not after Jedi.

        Car accident was just before "Corvette Summer", I believe.

    Yukosuka? No. It's spelled Yokosuka.
    I've been in the area a long time and it continues to amaze me how many people mis-pronounce it and misspell it.

    Missed in this article is that Mark plays Skips in the much beloved series "Regular Show." He's one of the greatest voice actors of our time...

        Posted on Yo, thanks for the shout-out! Part 3 is pblarboy coming sooner rather than later, detailing JLA #111 and bringing people back up on to speed on Libra (who DC has been pushing as a factor in FC recently). That's his one and only appearance, and there's a lot there to suggest connections with G-Mo's themes.Again, glad to hear you liked it!

    Yes, he looks bad, but cut the guy some slack. He was in a terrible car accident after filming 1977's Star Wars that really messed up his face. That's why he looked so different from Star Wars to The Empire Strikes Back. He needed extensive facial surgery and that's not going to age well.

      Uh – that image is of the character in the movie – that's makeup and a wig and stuff. I've seen recent pictures of him – he looks fine.

    Kid, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, and I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen *anything* to make me believe that there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. 'Cause no mystical energy field controls *my* destiny. It's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

      It was the Force holding him back from acting roles. He was great as the Joker; couldn't be beat, but in live-action, everybody saw him as Luke, and that was it. I hope he finds more roles now.

      Actually, it occurred to me that if Hollywood ever decides they need to resurrect the last Joker, I think Mark's got the look for it.

    Not to be too picky, but I definitely feel you left Robot Chicken out. And that's a pretty impressive part of his animation resume as well. Anyhoo, Mark Hamill's great. Loved by both young and old.

    There are a lot of nerds hiding in plain sight. The first time my boss heard my StarTrek:TOS communicator ring tone he looked at me and said "I never would have pegged you for a geek/nerd." It's cool to find that famous people have a nerd side aswell.
