Lately, when we see Mark Hamill’s name in a headline it is for some of his tweets and responses on Twitter. Well, today that is going to change up a little. In a report from The Hollywood Reporter, it seems that Mark Hamill will be teaming up with comedian Bert Kreischer in a project called The Machine. The Machine will be an adaptation of the viral story that Kreischer told about getting involved with the Russian Mob while abroad in college.
