‘Star Wars’ Alum Mark Hamill to Guest on ‘Criminal Minds’

Next month a guest star of galactic proportions will be dropping by the long-running CBS procedural Criminal Minds.

According to a report at TV Guide, ‘Star Wars’ hero Mark Hamill will guest star in the two-part season finale, which is scheduled for May 22.

Unfortunately, it’s been all quite on the details front as to what role Hamill will play, but what is known is that the finale will find one of the BAU team as a victim of the Replicator, who they have been hunting. Maybe this means Hamill will play that role? (Let the speculation continue until the finale airs, right?)

Since his days in the ‘Star Wars’ franchise, Hamill has made a name for himself in the voice actor world in shows like ‘Robot Chicken’, ‘The Cleveland Show’ and, of course as the Joker in the animated ‘Batman’ series. He also appeared in guest roles on ‘Chuck’ and ‘The Neighbors’. And, with the announcement of the new ‘Star Wars’ movies there have been talks of his returning to the new films as well.

The next new episode of season eight of ‘Criminal Minds’ is expected to air on Wednesday, May 1 at 9/8c on CBS.
