Interesting choice to use Joker as the picture. Since Mark Hamill is in no way sense of the word 'unexpected' when you think of Joker's voice actors. Some people know him more for being the voice of Joker than for being Luke Skywalker, even.

More people in general know Mark Hamill as Skywalker. But perhaps more gamers think of him as Joker. Most people think he stopped acting after Star Wars and don't know that the Batman games exist. Lol.

I never said the majority know him for his voice talent. Only some. I'm one of them for example. When I think of Mark, I think of Joker. I'm aware he was Luke, but thats not the first image that comes to my mind. I am aware that the general public probably still remember him as Luke.

Not sure if 'gamers' in general would know him better as Joker though. He's only been in two Batman games that I can remember (though Im sure theres a NES version somewhere way back). I know him because of his voicework of Joker in Batman: The Animated Series. I used to watch it all the time growing up.

He does a lot of voice work these days. More so in anime then in games, I would think.
