With the first season of Netflix's The Witcher now available to stream, it's time to start looking forward to Season 2. There are tons of different characters in the series that Netflix can pull from — and it looks like Mark Hamill might interested in playing Vesemir, an old, wise man.As pointed out by Redditor Grayjaw on r/TheWitcher, Hamill responded to a Twitter thread in 2018 where someone suggested that he'd be the perfect fit to play Vesemir. While Hamill's comments are over a year old, the Tweet has recently resurfaced among fans after Season 1 received fairly positive reviews.In the thread seen below, Vesemir is described by The Witcher showrunner Lauren Hissrich as fatherly, wise, sprightly, and ancient — all words that many might use to describe Hamill (except ancient, of course).
While Hamill does state that he is interested, it seems that he has little to no knowledge of The Witcher, saying, "I have no idea what this is or what it's about but agree it could/should be played by me."
Netflix has already renewed The Witcher for Season 2, so if they're looking to cast Vesemir, they already have a potential, fan-favorite candidate for the role.The show is inspired by both the books and the game, but Netflix's The Witcher seems to be more similar to the books than the games. However, The Witcher 3 game has seen a huge boost in players since it shows release on Netflix.Be sure to check out our full The Witcher: Season 1 review, which will take you through every episode. However, beware, the reviews do contain spoilers. You can also check out how the end of Season 1 sets up the plot for Season 2.
