Not content with reprising Luke Skywalker after over thirty years, Mark Hamill apparently landed himself a mysterious second role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
As pointed out, amongst others, by Twitter user Doug Bowman, Hamill appears twice in the credits of the movie. If you stuck around that long for your screening, you would have seen the actor’s name listed near the end of the cast rundown, where he’s credited as a character named “Dobbu Scay.”
The big question now is: who is this enigmatic Dobbu Scay? Well, going by the other credits surrounding Hamill (e.g. Canto Cop and Stable Boy), it’s clear that this character appeared in the Canto Bight sequences, when Finn and Rose infiltrated the casino populated by the galaxy’s richest citizens.
The prevailing theory right now is that Hamill played the most memorable gambler at the casino: the little Leprechaun-like critter who kept putting coins in BB-8 because he thought he was a slot machine. However, evidence suggests that this character was actually played by another Star Wars stalwart: Warwick Davis.
With that option out of the running, it’s likely that Hamill voiced one of the other CGI characters. After all, since first playing Luke in 1977, the actor has made a name for himself as a talented vocal performer. Most famously, he’s portrayed the Joker in various Batman media for the past twenty years.
The name Dobbu Scay also sounds like it could have a hidden meaning in it. We’re racking our brains, though, and we can’t find one.

Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi again (and again) and pay close attention to every minor character…
