Mark Hamill

Born: 9/25/1951
Birthplace: Oakland, California

Answers the question, What do you do after you save the universe from the forces of evil? Apparently, nothing. Hamill was the earnest Luke Skywalker three times, beginning with Star Wars (1977), of course, and ending with Return of the Jedi (1983). Since then, he's done mainly voices in animated shows and movies. In 2000, he's slated to appear in Sinbad: Beyond the Veil of Mists (another animated movie) with Leonard Nimoy, another actor who couldn't distance himself from an intergalactic part.
