If you stick around Hollywood long enough, they say you’ll start to see double. Talent will crop up to replace legends, but Mark Hamill is poking fun at the actor gunning for his spot. In a recent Twitter post, the Star Wars icon confirmed he’s very much aware of how much Sebastian Stan is his doppleganger.
Taking to social media, Hamill shared a message with for all geek-friendly fans. The actor posted a viral image of Stan put side-by-side with a photo of his younger self.
Hamill captioned the image, writing, “Sorry to disappoint you but I refuse to say “Sebastian Stan - I AM YOUR FATHER!” (even though, in fact, I am).”
The actor also used a winking emoji and the hashtags “Sorry Not Sorry” and “My Son Sebastian.” So, as usual, Hamill knows how to hit all of the Internet’s best buttons.
Fans have compared Hamill and Stan to one another for some time now. The doppleganger meme became popular last year when Captain America: Civil War was preparing to debut. Photos popped up on the Internet showing Hamill during his Luke Skywalker days compared to a photoshopped image of Stan as the Jedi. The head-shots are almost impossible to tell apart at first glance, and fans quickly create inside jokes about Stan’s father.
In the past, Hamill has joked about his shared features with Stan, but fans are dying over the legend’s latest tweet. You can check out some of the best reactions to Hamill’s tweet below:
Alright, so Sebastian seems on-board with this Hollywood father. It doesn't look like the guy is in denial like Luke was over Darth Vader.
If you can shock Tony Stark with your family history, then you have done something right. There's no unseeing how similar Sebastian and Mark look after seeing these photos.
He lost his arm, and got a cyborg replacement, just to be like you, though.....— Shablam! (@cobaltfalcon121) September 24, 2017
It's only a matter of time now before someone begins drawing up a comparison chart between Bucky Barnes and Luke Skywalker. Does this mean Tatooine and Brooklyn are the same place?
Mark. Your son answered on insta. ❤ pic.twitter.com/udUY3esh8s— natasha☄ (@NATSEBSTAN) September 24, 2017
Sebastian Stan isn't a Twitter guy, but he does have a thing for Instagram. It looks like the actor saw a repost of Mark's message, and the Captain America star had a good chuckle over it.
Need a film with you two. Father and son or a time travel adventure with you meeting your younger self. Maybe Flash messes up the TL again.— Moneer Elmasseek (@MoneerElmasseek) September 24, 2017
The Flash would have to mess up some serious timelines if he were to crossover Marvel and Star Wars. There's surely a fan-fic about this somewhere out there...
