Mark Hamill is using his voice talents for something new. Using his Joker voice, which he became famous for after playing the character on Batman: The Animated Series in the 1990s, the Star Wars actor recently read president-elect Donald Trump’s New Year’s tweet as the Batman villain.
Hamill’s version of the Joker is probably one of the favorites and most well-known of any of the villain’s incarnations. After listening to the actor read the tweet, it sounds especially villainous. A madman with a big ego rubbing in a victory in his enemies’ faces. It’s pretty eerie, to be honest.

It looks like Mark Hamill still has plenty where that came from. If so, then we’re in for a pretty big treat. Hamill began doing this when someone mentioned that Trump’s tweets sure sounded a lot like something the Joker would say. Hamill heard about it somehow and the rest is history.
this sounds like something the Joker would say right before releasing a swarm of killer bees into Gotham https://t.co/SyKsCHvyuh

The actor has built a name for himself. Becoming a household name in Hollywood and to sci-fi fans everywhere for playing Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: A New Hope, Hamill went on to appear in both of George Lucas’ sequels, along with Harrison Ford and the late Carrie Fisher. Later, he voiced the Joker (and continues to do so occasionally in animated movies). He also appeared as the Trickster on both the 1990s version and the most recent TV incarnation of The Flash. He’s most recently appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Kingsmen: The Secret Service.
