Before viewing some of the tweets from Hamill’s friends and fans, here’s what you can expect from Hamill next… Recently, the actor was in Serbia filming his upcoming movie The Machine, which he’ll be starring in alongside comedian Bert Kreischer. The film is set to be based on a real-life story Kreischer has told in his stand-up sets about getting involved with the Russian mob while studying abroad during college. The movie will follow Kreischer 20 years later as the mob connections from his past catch up with him and get him and his father, played by Hamill, kidnapped.

Getting to work with one of my childhood heroes was a dream come true. The fact that he also taught me how to use the Force was just a bonus. Happy birthday Mark @HamillHimself! pic.twitter.com/sWnuu5nYcU
