Mark Hamill once played the villain James Jesse, a.k.a. The Trickster, in the 1990 take on The Flash. HitFix reports that Hamill is returning to the role for the new CW series. He likely won’t have such a crazy costume, but who knows, maybe we’ll get lucky. The character’s description:
“Mark Hamill returns in a brand new interpretation of James Jesse (aka The Trickster), a role he originated on the 90’s ‘Flash’ series. In this new iteration, The Trickster is an anarchist terrorist con man serving a life sentence in Iron Heights who helps Barry (Grant Gustin) and Det. West (Jesse L. Martin) to foil the city-wide attacks of a wannabe Trickster eagerly following in the original’s deadly footsteps. The episode will reunite him with John Wesley Shipp who went up against him as the original ‘Flash’ on the CBS version.”
I’m completely on board and can’t wait to see Hamill in the role. Unfortunately, we have to wait until the 17th episode which will air in the spring of 2015.
