KUALA LUMPUR: Has Luke Skywalker finally succumbed to the Dark Side of the Force?
Apparently he’s on the wrong side of the law and will be taken in by the authorities. Well, the man who bears the name Luke Sky Walker at least.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, American actor and voice artist Mark Hamill, who is best known for his iconic role as the Jedi master in the Star Wars series of movies, is once again having fun at the expense of the individual with the same moniker. The 22-year-old man in the US had a warrant issued for his arrest in Carter County, Tennessee last Wednesday.
This was released by the Carter County Sheriff’s Office concerning a charge of property theft of over USD1,000 (about RM4,185).
The Force is certainly not strong with this particular individual as Walker was arrested last year for violating probation after a felony theft charge as well.
Just as he had done the last time, Hamill was quick with the quips and tweeted: “The sequel that nobody asked for & no one wants to see. #LarcenousLuke #TheSheriffStrikesBack.”
After Walker’s arrest last December, the actor had also tweeted: “The real crime here is Mr & Mrs Walker saddling this poor guy with that name in the first place. #MisbegottenMoniker #AlsoTooShortForAStormtrooper.”
Hamill will reprise his famous role for the last time in the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker which will greet fans in cinemas worldwide in December.
