Mark Hamill: If my ABC cowboy sitcom hadn’t been canceled, I might not have landed on Star Wars

  • Hamill recalled his brief stint with Gary Busey on The Texas Wheelers, which he describes as a "discordant reply to The Waltons.” The sitcom ran in the 1974-75 season. “When the show was canceled, it was one of the biggest traumas of my life," says Hamill. “I was devastated. I thought, 'I'll never get a part that good again.’” He added on Twitter: “If this had been a hit- I would not have been available for #StarWars.”
