Mark at Adobe Awards 2009

The International Mark Hamill Fan Club reports that Mark will be hosting an evening of the Adobe Awards on October 6.
I am ASSUMING this means the Adobe MAX 2009 Conference & Awards in Los Angeles. Check out their website for all details, and if
you find a definite location for this, or a specific time for Mark's appearance, let us know!

Mark plays Robert Minkow!

IMDb has name for the character Mark is playing in the new and as of yet still untitled movie on the real-life story of Barry Minkow. It's Robert Minkow - this sounds like he's playing a relative of the lead character, which I hope will translate into some serious screen time.

Belated Happy Birthday, Mark!!!

Finally I can log on here and leave my birthday wishes for our beloved Mark! Better late than never, right? I think this was the first time in all my Mark Hamill fandom life that I have had absolutely no way to leave any wishes on the day proper. :( Oh well, I'm sure all you other Hamill fans stood in for me just fine. :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARK! I HOPE YOU SPENT A WONDERFUL DAY WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS! HERE'S TO ANOTHER TWELVE MONTHS OF HEALTH, HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS! STAY THE WAY YOU ARE BECAUSE YOU ROCK!
In this animated documentary Mark voices a character by the name of The Corpse. The movie has been highly praised, and will be screened at Dragon*Con 2009 on Saturday, September 5.

Here's some links:

New movie for Mark?

An incredible piece of news landed in my mailbox this morning. The Hollywod Reporter posted this yesterday, August 30, 2009:
Justin Baldoni has been cast in the title role in the real-life story of "Barry Minkow." Baldoni joins James Caan, Armand Assante, Mark Hamill and Ving Rhames in the bizarre story of a teenage entrepreneur running a successful carpet company, ZZZZ Best, who gets busted for running a Ponzi scheme.

I'd so love to see Mark back in front of the camera - I mean, I love his work as a director, and I'm very much looking forward to The Black Pearl, but he's such a wonderful actor, he should be giving us both! :D

90-minute Mark Interview

The website Colony of Gamers landed a phone interview with Mark. It was supposed to take 30 minutes, but Mark ended up talking for 90 minutes straight. It is an absolutely awesome, amazing, fun interview - could it be otherwise, with Mark just going on and on about all possible kinds of entertainment-related things?

You will enjoy this big time.

Heads-Up: Arkham Asylum

A definite release date for Batman: Arkham Asylum has been announced. It will hit US stores on August 25, European stores on August 28. It will be available for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. My recommendation is clear: get it for PlayStation 3! Why, you ask? Well....

Because on PlayStation 3, you'll be able to download an addition for free which will allow you to PLAY THE GAME AS JOKER! You will BE JOKER!

And just to wet your mouth some more, here's the official trailer for playing the clown-prince of crime! Do not forget to click on full-screen view! I want this!!




This Joker is just sooo good! As Mark said in the panel, he's allowed to kill people in the game, to be violent, which he wasn't allowed so much in the animated series. Now, who's getting the PS3 version? ;D
