Mark Hamill to voice Chucky in the Child’s Play remake

Outside his tenure as the man with the beam sword, Mark Hamill has carved out a real niche for himself as a psychopathic villain, playing TV takes on comic book rogues like Arnim Zola, Trickster, and, most famously, the Joker. And it seems he has no intention of stopping his fiendish cackling anytime soon.

In a post on Twitter, Hamill has revealed that he’s set to voice Chucky in Child’s Play, Gabriel Bateman’s upcoming remake of the persistent classic of the same name. And he’s honestly a pretty genius choice in terms of both replacing Brad Dourif’s iconic voice and quieting the angry anti-remake nerds who will always shut up to hear Luke Skywalker.
