The director of the next “Star Wars” installment has made a serious prediction.
J.J. Abrams says Mark Hamill will win an Oscar for “The Last Jedi.” The director seems to be hinting at how intense this next film in the series will be. But it will have light moments that Hamill is able to handle according to Abrams. “He is hysterically funny,” Abrams says of his star. “He has done comedy. He is an amazing guy — he can do anything.”
We’ll have to wait until December to see whether or not the actor's performance is indeed Oscar-worthy.
