Mark Hamill Interview with The A.V. Club

September 30, 2011 at 9:37 am | Posted in Comic Books, Dark Horse, Entertainment, Interview | Leave a comment
Tags: , , conducted a very nice interview with Star Wars actor Mark Hamill which they posted yesterday. The interview was done at San Diego Comic Con 2011 with Todd VanDerWerff. They cover a range of topics including the film he directed Comic Book: The Movie and the difficulties he had in shooting footage while surrounded by fans. They also cover Mark’s upcoming movie Sushi Girl which will be out next year. In Mark’s own words he gets to play a “such a lowlife scumbag, and so perverse.” The role gave him a lot of freedom from who he is in reality, and it sounded like he enjoyed it a lot. Plus relates his experience with Sam Fuller in The Big Red One, a classic war film.

Aside from the movies, Mark talked about working with Jack Elam and Gary Busey in the television show The Texas Wheelers. There’s also a Dark Horse comic book he co-wrote with Eric Johnson that follows a masked vigilante and illustrates why Batman wouldn’t work in the real world, “it’s much more Fargo than it is Batman And Robin.” The comic book, The Black Pearl, actually started out as a screenplay (that Mark and Eric wrote), and now that screenplay might become a movie.

And of course they cover The Joker and Star Wars. You can read the full interview here.

Tags: , , , ,

This week‘s Susan J. Morris posted a very nice interview with author Paul S. Kemp. The interview focused on anti-heroes and Kemp’s use of them in his novels. Questions and comments ranged from his Forgotten Realms work with Erevis Cale to his more recent Star Wars novel Deceived and Darth Malgus. Lots of great aspects covered including writing villains and lots of info on writing the anti-hero. You can read the article here.

In other news, Paul recently posted an excerpt from his upcoming Forgotten Realms book Godborn, the latest edition to his Erevis Cale novels. Godborn won’t be out until November next year so if you haven’t read any of the Erevis Cale novels there is still plenty of time to catch up. You can read the excerpt here.

Wrapping things up, Paul also chimed in with another great dose of humor on his website. No drunk Tweeting, but he does wax poetic about Amazon’s founder Jeff Bezos, publishing, the Kindle Fire, and some humorous references to Lord of the Rings. Read it here and don’t miss out on the fun.

And don’t forget, Kemp’s Star Wars book Riptide comes out October 25 in both paperback and digital formats.

Star Wars Books has released mini-excerpt #3 for the upcoming Star Wars novel Shadow Games by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff.

Dash folded his arms. “It’s time to come clean, little miss Star Bright. It’s not that this guy likes you too much—it’s that this guy really doesn’t like you. And I’m not real happy myself,” he added. “I don’t like flying backward and blind through an asteroid field, I don’t like facing a rancor with one hand tied behind me, and I don’t like this.”

Shadow Games comes out November 29 in paperback and digital formats.

UPDATE: Nearly missed this – Suvudu also posted a 50 page excerpt from Greg Keyes latest novel which you can read here.

Greg Keyes has a new book out this week called Lord of Souls and it’s out now. Many Star Wars fans will remember Greg Keyes contribution to the NJO era with his three books Conquest, Rebirth, and The Final Prophecy. Lord of Souls is his second Elder Scrolls novel taking place 40 years after the Oblivion crisis and centers around the floating city of Umbriel and it’s undead army. As part of their Take Five promotion series, Suvudu asked Mr. Keyes to share five facts about his latest novel.

When playing Oblivion as research for this book, I was really taken with the city of Anvil. I’m not sure why – it just felt like home.

Be sure to head over to Suvudu to read all five of the interesting facts, including his inspiration for Umriel, tips for poisoning someone, his biggest difficulty with the series, and a rare Southeast Asian fruit that made it into the novel.
