Jack-In-The-Box are now offering an absolutely free (postage included) comic book regaling us all with the tale of Mark’s time at Jack-In-The Box, his rise to fame, and his return to the role he was destined for – Drive-Thru Window Attendant! You can get an immediate pdf digital download, and for my analog-loving friends, there is even a free print edition!
As the story goes, Mark Hamill worked at a Jack-In-The-Box at age 18.
At age 18, Hamill, a student at Los Angeles City College, worked the drive-thru at Jack in the Box, where he practiced impersonations.
“I had worked at another fast-food place when I was like 16, so I knew the routine,” as Mark Hamill tells it, “, but I always aspired to work that takeout window.”
And the window made for the perfect stage to hone his acting chops: “I thought you should talk like a clown, which is what I did,” Hamill remembered. “I thought it was amusing — my boss thought it was annoying.”
So annoying, in fact, that the impersonations resulted in Hamill getting fired.
