What would the #Joker think of #LukeSkywalker? Our patient challenged @Hamillhimself, and was blown away by the answer. Thanks for helping #MakeMarchMatter, Mark! #StarWars #Batman @MakeMarchMatter pic.twitter.com/a7IqHcp5HZ

While participating in the Make March Matter fundraiser for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the great Mark Hamill responded to a question from a young patient who wanted to know what The Joker thought of Luke Skywalker. Hamill responded deliciously in character.
Luke Skywalker, eh? I’m not really fond of Jedi. In fact, I hate them.
Hamill then let out such an evil laugh that his new puppy Molly started barking. He then brought Molly up to the camera to introduce her to the world.
Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper? That’s what Princess Leia said to me when she saw me in my stormtrooper outfit. …Believe me, I’ve been teased about that all my life.
Hamill also stated that it had to be a special occasion for him to do his “Joker” voice.
I was happy to do The Joker on this private zoom for @ChildrensLA, but it's awkward when people ask me to do him in a grocery store or the airport. You can't do him quietly & it's disturbing for those who assume I'm just some random kook. ??@MakeMarchMatter https://t.co/84cOmIIcZQ
