Actor Mark Hamill is cracking jokes again!
This time, his fans are joining in on the fun!
Mark Hamill Watched ‘Shark Tank’ … Where Are The Sharks?
I finally watched an episode of Shark Tank & was very disappointed there were no sharks or marine life of any kind.🦈

On Monday, the “Star Wars” actor tweeted, “I finally watched an episode of Shark Tank & was very disappointed there were no sharks or marine life of any kind.🦈”
Say it ain’t so!
Fans were quick to join in with their own comments.
“Kind of how I felt when I first saw Star Wars,” one user replied. “Not a star in sight, unless you count Peter Cushing.”
“The show really is a lie,” another added. “Sharks can’t even drive tanks.”
“Shark Tank is a rip off of Canada’s ‘Dragon Den,’” another wrote. “Just think how I felt when there were no dragons…”
“It would be kind of great if it were like a pitch show + dunk tank + sharks,” another wrote. ‘You fail to win over the judges/investors and you drop into the pool of sharks (like nurse sharks because otherwise, I think the insurance liability would be pretty high) and have to swim to the exit.”
Another fan replied, “You can imagine then how I feel about Beat Bobby Flay.”
That one caught the attention of Mark Hamill!
Mark Hamill Expected Bobby Flay To Receive A Beating!
I watched that show a couple of times, but there was only cooking, without Bobby Flay receiving a beating or even getting slightly roughed up as I expected. https://t.co/QywEDt6PUO

In response to the tweet, Hamill commented, “I watched that show a couple of times, but there was only cooking, without Bobby Flay receiving a beating or even getting slightly roughed up as I expected.”
“Right?” another fan asked. “He always comes out unscathed.”
Then again, they might be referring to Flay’s relentless win streak, which has caught the ire of fans.
“Mark, I saw an episode where the challenge was to make chilaquiles,” one user explained. “The challenger did a fantastic job. Bobby Flay made tostadas, which is not even close to being chilaquiles. And, he won. I had no interest in watching ‘Bobby Flay’s Inflated Ego’ ever again.”
“The red velvet cake challenge where he didn’t make red velvet cake,” another user wrote. “Aargh.”
This isn’t the first time that Hamill has been having some fun with his fans! Earlier this month, he asked them to guess the name of his new Netflix show!

Very excited about the project I’m working on!
Most people would simply announce the title in a straightforward manner, but where’s the fun in that?

Many fans were quickly able to piece together that the name of Mark Hamill’s new show is “The Fall of the House of Usher.” It wasn’t all that hard to piece together, especially considering that show creator Mike Flanagan has been teasing updates about it on Twitter for quite a while!
@HamillHimself I know what you’re filming for! You’ve confirmed you’re in Vancouver but I figured that out earlier. 😉 #TheFallOfTheHouseOfUsher #MarksMysteryChallenge https://t.co/eIjg2S5AYp pic.twitter.com/BaTafCSM00

Although fans may be familiar with the short story that Edgar Allan Poe published in the 1800s, Netflix described the show as a “modern remix” of several of his works.
Hamill will be joined by actress Carla Gugino, who has appeared in many of Flanagan’s other Netflix projects. Oscar nominee Frank Langella has been cast as Usher family patriarch Roderick Usher. “Major Crimes” star Mary McDonnell has been cast as his twin sister, Madeline Usher, and “Alias” actor Carl Lumbly has been cast as detective C. Auguste Dupin. Willa Fitzgerald joined the cast on January 28.

The name of the new series was also pretty easy to guess, considering Mark Hamill posted a photo of himself reading “The Unabridged Edgar Allan Poe” the day before his previous tweet.
Although Hamill’s character has yet to be named, he is said to be “surprisingly at home in the shadows.”
The series will last eight episodes; each of which has been written by Flanagan himself. He and long-time collaborator Michael Fimognari will each be directing four episodes each.
Flanagan is the mastermind behind Netflix horror classics such as “The Haunting of Hill House,” “The Haunting of Bly Manor” and the recent “Midnight Mass,” all of which were critically acclaimed.
“The Fall of the House of Usher” is still filming and currently has no release date.
