Luke Skywalker Declares Himself a Reds Fan

Which explains why he spent the last several decades hiding from MOTD.

Mark Hamill, a.k.a. Luke Skywalker, a.k.a. the guy who played the best Joker (fight me), has made this weekend slightly less horrendous for Liverpool fans. It all began with a bit of an embarrassing mixup involving Hamill throwing his support behind Wolverhampton because he thought someone was talking to him about actual wolves.

Once the story was picked up and he noticed the lack of real life wolves in the narrative, Hamill went back to Twitter to explain the misunderstanding and let the world know he really doesn’t follow football. But, in a universe where he does spend his weekends miserable because the eleven men he’s fondest of are really bad at keeping some other men from scoring goals, he’d throw his weight behind the Reds.

All fans start somewhere and feeling fondly about the Beatles is surely a classic. So welcome, Alternate Universe Mark Hamill. You’re in pretty decent company with both Qui-Gon Jinn and Mace Windu, James Bond, Nelson Mandela, Angelia Jolie’s kids, Dr. Dre, and LeBron James.
