For months, fans have noted the strong resemblance that Sebastian Stan has with a young Mark Hamill, and both actors have had some fun playing along with the joke. Hamill even used The Empire Strikes Back‘s most famous line to humorously acknowledge Stan as his son. Both Stan and Hamill were guests on Good Morning America this week to promote their respective films: Avengers: Infinity War and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. While he was there, Stan took the opportunity to record a message for his “dad” that quickly made Hamill laugh.

Following the video greeting, Hamill declined to directly endorse Stan to play a young Luke Skywalker in any potential movies, because “he doesn’t need me. He’s an accomplished enough actor to get it on his own, and I shouldn’t put my thumb on the scale because it’s not my choice.” Having said that, Hamill offered praise for Stan’s acting talent and said that he would welcome the chance to play Stan’s father.

It’s still unclear if Luke Skywalker has any children, but we’re hoping that The Last Jedi will clear up that mystery. There is possibly a way that Hamill and Stan can rule a scene as father and son within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, if Hamill plays Bucky Barnes’ father in a flashback sequence. We’d still prefer a Star Wars connection between the two, but we’ll take what we can get.What do you think about Stan’s message for his “dad”? Let us know in the comment section below!
