Hamill won the role of Luke Skywalker by auditioning and doing a screen test.[2] Describing how he won the role of The Joker, Hamill said this: "Well I'd heard that they were going to do and [sic] the model for the campaigns would be the Max Fleischer Superman cartoons of the 40's, and I'm a huge animation fan it [sic] knew it would be a much more sophisticated version. The [sic] gave me the part of Ferris Boyle in the first Mr. Freeze episode "Heart of Ice." What I loved about it, I thought it was so melancholy and so deep. Paul Dini wrote it and later got nominated for an Emmy. So I did it and I think what happened was that they were surprised what a fan boy I was, and how much I knew about Batman. I asked all these specific questions referencing the early comics.

So when they were doing the Joker auditions I think that played a big part as they asked me to audition. I thought no way would they have the person that played Luke Skywalker cast as the Joker - they are the quintessential extremes of good and evil. So I just assumed they wouldn't hire me so I went in with no apprehension. And I had been doing Amadeus on Broadway for the year. And so I was experimenting with that laugh for Amadeus and I brought it to the Joker audition and it player [sic] really well. And I felt cocky when I left and thought 'That's the best Joker they are every going to hear - too bad they can't hire me.' And then two weeks later when they called and said I got the job I immediately lost my confidence.

And then my friend told me you're pretty brave. And I said why is that? And he said I wouldn't want to follow Jack Nicholson on anything. And then I got even more scared. But fear is a great motivator."[3]

When asked who his hero was as a child, Hamill replied: "I used to watch superman [sic] on TV, and i [sic] loved the idea of flying. i [sic] used to wonder if i [sic] wanted to fly like superman [sic] or peter pan [sic]. Peter Pan looked like it was more fun, superman [sic] was so bolt straight. And i [sic] loved Zorro, the old Disney Zorro. What is it with guys with secret identities who go out and fight crime? And James bond [sic]. I loved all that stuff."[4]

Despite voicing Skips on the show, he doubted Regular Show's success originally: "When i [sic] read the first script for The Regular Show i [sic] thought it was too weird for young people, it's surreal. I didn't think it had a chance but now it's on its sixth season."[5]

He resides in an undisclosed location, with his wife Marilou[6], a dental hygienist,[7] and their dog.[8] Together Mark and Marilou have three children: Nathan[9], an artist[10], Chelsea[11] and Griffin, a painter.[12] He also has an older brother and at least two sisters.[13]
