Mark Hamill to again play The Trickster on ‘The Flash’

DC Comics, with HitFix, announced today that Mark Hamill (“Star Wars”) has signed on to play James Jesse, aka The Trickster, in an episode of the hit new “The Flash” series.

If this announcement seems familiar, no, you have not taken a trip on The Flash’s time traveling Cosmic Treadmill. Hamill, who played The Trickster on the 1990 “The Flash” series that originally aired on CBS, will again be playing the villain on The CW‘s current “The Flash” series, starring Grant Gustin.

Just announced: ‘Star Wars’ stars to make appearance on ‘Big Bang Theory

TVLine.com just announced today, Jan. 11 that two ‘Star Wars‘ stars are set to make special appearances on “The Big Bang Theory” later this season. James Earl Jones who played the voice of Darth Vader and Carrie Fisher who played Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” movies will be coming across Jim Parsons’ character, Sheldon. This should be interesting.

They will be playing themselves. This makes fans question what they will be doing there and how Sheldon will take them or rather how they will take Sheldon.

“The Big Bang Theory” is TV’s most-watched and highest-rated comedy as well as a syndication powerhouse, even in it’s seventh season. At this time there is no word on an eighth season as the main stars are still in contract negotiations. At this time, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, who plays Amy and Bernadette, have signed their new deals $60,000 per-episode.

The three leads, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, and Johnny Galecki are currently getting paid $300,000 per episde while holding out for a $200,000 raise to $500,000 while Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar get $125,000 and $75,000 and are looking for more as well.

More than likely if contract negations can be met the show will continue for multiple seasons.

First original ‘The Star Wars’ script under publication by Dark Horse

A legendary script behind the internationally recognized sci-fi legendary script by George Lucas has been residing on the outskirts of books, games and most of all the iconic movies.

A move has been made to tell the all-too familiar canon from it’s very first script conception “The Star Wars” that will recreate in non-recognition many of its most integral household protagonist heroes.

Dark Horse is the comics publisher that has been able to retain the rights to retell the tale of the aging General Skywalker, Hans Solo the alien and the Jedi Annikin Starkiller. The entire story will be just as different and revealing of original creativity as the revelation that Jabba the Hut in “Return of the Jedi” wasn’t the original look.

J.W. Rinzler will write the eight-issue miniseries, and will team-up with Mike Mayhew, who will draw the comic books’ artwork.

Rinzler is best known as the Executive Editor at LucasBooks. Mayhew has

“While researching in the Lucasfilm Archives I’ve found many treasures—but one which truly astounded me was George’s rough draft for The Star Wars. His first complete imaginings were hallucinating to read—mind blowing,” said writer J.W. Rinzler. “While working with George on another book project, I once asked if we could adapt his rough draft. He was hesitant. Years later, with Dark Horse’s invaluable help, we showed him a few drawn and colored pages of what it might look like. He gave us the okay.”

Sept. will be the time this rendition from 1974 will be available for readers to enjoy and compare against the 1977 initial movie starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and film legend Alec Guinness.
