Mark Hamill guest stars on Man Down, Twitter goes bananas

A greasy spoon owner, the Star Wars legend played


A long time ago in a galaxy far far away (well, Channel 4 just after 10 last night), Mark Hamill – yes the Luke Skywalker from Star Wars – flew on to screens in the last episode of Greg Davies’ Man Down. As a Jedi? Not exactly. Hamill played Bob, a greasy spoon owner. 


Was it all a force Mind Trick? Could Davies actually bag one of the Universe’s biggest stars to play the world’s worst café owner? Absolutely. Hamill has long been an admirer of British comedy, previously telling he’s a massive fan of Man Down. This is the cameo you’ve been searching for.


Still, viewers couldn’t believe what they were Luke-ing at (sorry).
