William Shatner Busts Mark Hamill's Chops Over Upcoming Hollywood Star
Captain Kirk and Luke Skywalker's paths crossed Thursday — and it was awesome.
William Shatner and Mark Hamill exchanged a few friendly jabs on Twitter in celebration of the latter actor getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
"Congratulations! BTW ask for a star on the south side of the street. I’m on the north side and don’t want to devalue the neighborhood," Shatner tweeted at Hamill, who zinged back, "Thanks, Bill. It wouldn't be as special without a classic Shatner-burn from you! Live Long, But Get Lost."
Both sci-fi legends are prolific social media users with millions of followers each.
Hamill's star was announced on Wednesday and will be unveiled March 8.
"Can't say this is a dream come true because I was never foolish enough to think something like this could ever happen. When part of me doubts I deserve such an honor, I remind myself that someone got a "Star" for just one crappy reality show. #BeyondGr8ful,' Hamill tweeted Thursday, seemingly taking a shot at Donald Trump. The actor has been an outspoken critic of the president.
Hamill recently starred in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Critics and fans agreed it was his best performance of the beloved Jedi Knight character yet.
