The Force is strong with season 2 of Transformers Rescue Bots - Mark Hamill, best known for his roles as Luke Skywalker and the voice of The Joker in Batman the Animated Series and the Arkham games, has been confirmed to have recorded a guest star role for an episode of Transformers Rescue Bots. This was confirmed by Rescue Bots voice director Ginny McSwain, who was the guest on this week's episode of Rob Paulsen's "Talkin' Toons" podcast. Check out the full podcast here.

Rescue Bots/DCAU crossover! Nah, but seriously, it's good to see more big voice-acting names in Transformers stuff. Given Hamill's VA track record, it looks like we'll be getting another big villain for Rescue Bots series 2?

Cool. Love Mark Hamill in Star Wars and Batman. Like Jalaguy said, it's good to see Rescue Bots getting more big voice acting names.

well may the force be with him......................always

HEY! someone had to say it
Feralstorm
I've often thought Hamill could probably do a good Starscream basing on his other work.

He probably won't be doing that for Rescue Bots though.

C'mon Mark, those aren't the droids you're looking for.

Cool. I wonder what kind of voice he is going to do?

That's my guess, too - besides Luke Skywalker, he isn't exactly known for his heroic roles.

OMG this is awesome!!!
Hosta
btw there's bound to be some Star Wars reference in the episode he's voicing! no doubt

As a Starscream and Star Wars fanboy, I approve of this idea.

You May See Him in The Regular Show as Skips The Yeti.

Awesome news! I hope he crosses over to Transformers Prime too. I don't care if he's an Autobot or a Decepticon--the dude's got made talent! ...though, he may make a better Decepticon.

I've gotta bad feeling about this.
QLRformer
If I grin anymore at this news, my face will stay like that forever.

It's about time! I hope this leads into a great career in Transformers. I have no idea who he'd voice (ideally I'd say Cyclonus, but that's me), but it's just awesome that the great Mark Hamill will be joining the league of TRANSFORMERS voice actors (not to mention a STAR WARS actor, no offense Trekkies but I hear too many Trek actors in TF, and IMO it doesn't feel right considering TF was based on STAR WARS).
UltraAlanMagnus
I would Love to see Him as Omega Supreme.
Spin-Out
Man, Rescue Bots gets the best guest stars.

I still hope he eventually does a voice for Bludgeon, though - mainly 'cuz he's not averse to playing raspy-voiced, skull-faced villains

Nah, Omega Supreme. With his Grundy Voice.

Grundy Supreme.

Agreed.

Next to Tim Curry & George Takei, Hasbro Studios gets all the great guest voices.

Too many Trek actors in TF? Aside from Nimoy and Takei, who else is there?

These aren't Greg Weisman productions after all

Omigoshomigoshomigoooosssh, I absolutely love Mark Hamill, the range of voices he can do is just amazing, I have no idea what sort of character he could be voicing, but i'm hoping for a villainous or mischiveous character

Levar Burton and Jeffrey Combs.

Not that I am complaining, I love Star Trek and would like to see more of them in transformers.

Finally the one man i wanted to see in this franchise will be voicing in it. I'm happy and kind of bummed out. Happy that he's in the franchise, bummed out because he'll be in Rescue Bots and that's probably going to mean he'll be a human character.

Yes Please sign me up for some of that.

Wonderful news!! Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!! Nice find CMc!!!

So happy to hear about this...love his voice work.

Now...does the Joker set up a deal with Dr. Morocco to take out the bots? or Griffin Rock?? Just had to ask. Pairing up the villainous Dr. Morocco and the Joker seems so natural.

Of course, it would be okay if they have a little Star Wars nod in there too.


Or not, heck Mark may even be a new rescue bot....*squeeeeeeeee*

I'm not a big RB fan, but this is still cool news. Mark Hamill is a great voice actor!

I would like him to voice an Autobot for a change, after ~20 years of voicing villains.
