Outside of his memorable roles in Star Wars, Mark Hamill over the past few decades has enjoyed an incredibly successful run as a Hollywood voice over actor. Taking a look at Hamill’s impressively long resume, his voice work as the Joker from Batman: The Animated Series truly stands out as something iconic.
Last week, Hamill thought he’d have a little fun and decided to record one of Donald Trump’s widely circulated tweets using his patented and quintessentially evil Joker voice. The result was nothing short of stunning.
This week, Hamill was at it again, this time reading Trump’s recent Twitter tirade about Meryl Streep. As for some quick background, Streep during last week’s Golden Globe Awards show trashed President-elect Donald Trump without mentioning him by name.
“There was one performance this year that stunned me,” Streep said in part. “It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good, there was nothing good about it, but it was effective and it did its job. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back.”
Never one to ignore a insult or even a perceived slight, Trump predictably took to Twitter where he called Streep “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood.”
In a new audio recording titled “Return of Trumpster”, Hamill once again delivers a homerun.
And for anyone who missed Hamill’s first effort, here it is below for your listening enjoyment.

As Trump prepares to take over the Oval Office this week, we can expect to hear more Hamill as Joker as Trump audio recordings in the weeks and months ahead.
