Will Mark Hamill ever stop being the best part of Twitter? It seems unlikely. The actor best known for playing Luke Skywalker in Star Wars often posts about the beloved franchise, cracking dad jokes about his character and revealing fun behind-the-scenes facts about the movies. His most recent post involves making fun of a jacked Luke toy, which Hamill hilariously said looks like his head on Dwayne Johnson’s body.
Looks like Luke's head was photoshopped onto the body of @TheRock— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) August 10, 2019
“Looks like Luke's head was photoshopped onto the body of @TheRock #PumpedUpSteroidsSkywalkerWithABalconyYouCouldDoShakespeareFrom,” Hamill joked.
Many people commented on the post:
“I'm pretty sure you were the inspiration for He-Man. The resemblance is just so uncanny there,” @guywithfoureyes joked.
“Now I want a Star Wars/Fast and Furious crossover,” @RogueOcto wrote. (This suggestion isn’t as far-fetched as you’d think, considering a Fast & Furious writer recently said they’re open to going to space.)
Some fans took it a step further with some delightful photoshop:

While Luke may have died in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, fans can still expect to see Hamill's return in the upcoming film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Hamill recently confirmed he’ll be returning to the franchise as a Force Ghost, much like Obi-Wan did in the original trilogy.1comments
