Luke shouldn’t have trusted his feelings, which apparently have been warped by Hollywood and voicing the Joker all these years.

The 60-year-old actor, best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the original “Star Wars” films, made his remarks to at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend while reminiscing about a show he used to watch as a kid – the Disney-produced 1950s series “Zorro.”

“I knew nothing about Mexican history or anything. But just the idea of a privileged person fighting for the underdog – there’s something very romantic about that,” Hamill told “I guess it goes back to Robin Hood. People that are fighting for the middle class and for the Have-Nots. It’s something that we see even playing out in the presidential race.”

“And if you don’t vote for Barack Obama, you’re insane,” he added. ”Cause without him, I think the middle class will completely disappear. And you look at Romney and I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but I think he’s like The Thing  he only imitates human behavior. He’s not actually human himself.”

Says a man who spent the most successful part of his career playing opposite a guy in a black plastic imitation samurai helmet, who used someone else’s voice. When he wasn’t working with Muppets.

Hamill added that he is a “lifelong Democrat.”
