Mark Hamill Is Trading His Lightsaber In For Fangs!

Star Wars star Mark Hamill has revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he will be guest appearing on the vampire comedy series, “What We Do In The Shadows.”

Hamill will portray an ancient vampire in Jemaine Clement‘s FX series What We Do in the Shadowsand EW has your first look at the character — fangs and all. The episode titled “On the Run,” set to air May 13, will introduce a vengeful enemy from Laszlo’s (Matt Berry) past who appears without warning to settle a personal debt. This causes Laszlo to flee his home and go into hiding.

“Mark had tweeted some very nice things about the movie and the show very early on in our first season, so we knew he understood the world of the show,” series executive producer and co-showrunner Paul Simms tells EW exclusively. “And also, he seemed perfect for the part because he has the gravitas to play an ancient vampire rival, he’s not afraid to be silly, and he knows a thing or two about extended fight scenes.”
