Quote:In terms of getting work after Star Wars, while there is the problem of type casting, there is also the question of the talent of the actor or actress in question.
Who has more talent: Harrison Ford, Carrie Fischer, Mark Hamil, or Natalie Portman?
Harrison Ford & Natalie Portman.
Nevertheless, I think that, with Mark Hamill & Carrie Fischer, there was also the problem that their faces are so easy to recognize.
A bit like Tom Selleck : he is Magnum forever.
Ford & Portman have a better ability to change faces with different characters ... and it also makes them better actors. Granted.
Well I think Tom Selleck has been able to do fairly well outside of Magnum, though Selleck is more a TV actor then a movie actor, imoath
Still your idea about hamil and Fischer not being able to change their face has some merit. Back in the old Flash TV series when he was the Trickster, I kept thinking of an insane Luke Skywalker. I am glad though that part helped him become the Joker voice.
