What on earth happened to Luke Skywalker? The Force is no longer with Mark Hamill
By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
Star Wars star Mark Hamill was once considered one of the sexiest actors in Hollywood.
But The Force seems to no longer be with the actor who played Luke Skywalker as the ageing star showed at an event last night.
The 59-year-old arrived at the wrap party for his new movie Sushi Girl at Las Palmas nightclub in Los Angeles.

Hamill sported dyed blonde hair and wore all-black to disguise his middle-aged spread.
He was accompanied by his wife of 32 years, Marilou York and his daughter Chelsea, 22, who seemed to be delighted to be on his arm.
Sushi Girl is described by screenwriter Destin Pfaff as: 'Five friends reunite six years after a diamond job gone wrong to eat sushi off a naked girl.'

Still trying: Hamill played Luke Skywalker in George Lucas' trilogy but has failed to land any big acting roles since Return of The Jedi in 1983
'Nothing is as it seems and nothing ever was. Needless to say, being '70s horror boys at heart, torture, madness and violence ensues. You know, your typical high-octane family film.
Hamill played Luke Skywalker in George Lucas' original trilogy and has failed to land any big acting roles since Return of The Jedi in 1983.
His Star Wars celebrity helped him land parts in such movies as the teen comedy Corvette Summer and the war saga The Big Red One in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

But Hamill generally found himself typecast as Luke, the science-fiction epic's young hero destined to bring down an evil empire and restore his villainous father's honour.
He also gained a reputation as a prolific voice actor and had an acclaimed role as the Joker in the Emmy Award winning Batman: The Animated Series
