Here’s the first look at Mark Hamill in the TV Show Kinghtfall. In the picture (above) Hamill is alongside series star Tom Cullen.

The Star Wars actor is nearly unrecognizable in season 2 of the History drama series, donning a full gray beard and long gray hair.

Hamill plays “Talus,” a “battle-hardened Knight Templar veteran of the Crusades, who survived captivity for ten years in the Holy Land and is tasked with training the new initiates to the Order.”

Knightfall goes inside the medieval politics and warfare of the Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages.

Season 2 is currently in production in Prague and will air next year.

We look forward to seeing Mark in this new role.
