Mark Hamill (Star Wars) will guest-star on The CW’s The Flash, reprising his role from the 1990s series as villain James Jesse aka The Trickster.
In this new iteration, The Trickster is an anarchist terrorist con man serving a life sentence in Iron Heights who helps Barry (Grant Gustin) and Det. West (Jesse L. Martin) to foil the city-wide attacks of a wannabe Trickster eagerly following in the original’s deadly footsteps. The episode will reunite him with John Wesley Shipp who went up against him as the original ‘Flash’ on the CBS version.
Hamill is set to appear in Episode 17 of The Flash.
