A very curious picture was shared today on Twitter. I'm still not sure if the picture is new but it shows Mark Hamill with a very Jedi Master like beard. Hit the jump for that and another tweet by Hamill himself...
Here are the two interesting tweets:
@HamillHimself, what are you doing in Gravity Falls? Besides posing with me for Stache 'N' Goatee Monthly pic.twitter.com/gYkZfD0KF5

I believe the image is recent because the second season of Gravity Falls is set to air in Summer 2014.
And here's a tweet from Hamill himself about his appearance on Star Wars Weekends this weekend!
Getting ready for my visit to Disney World! Hope to see you all there June 6th through 8th. Don't leave me hanging!! #SWW2014

Before making his Star Wars Weekends debut at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Friday, Mark Hamill spoke with Orlando Sentinel discussing Star Wars VII, spoilers and more.
From Orlando Sentinel:
On a decades-ago visit to Disney World:
“They treat you like royalty. It’s really an experience you’ll never forget. … We saw three or four attractions at Epcot within a couple of hours. If we had had to do it the traditional way, it would have taken the full day. But what I really loved was having someone there who was an expert in everything Disney. That’s what interests me more and more as I get older is the actual running of the operation, going underground in the golf carts and seeing the wardrobe and hanging out with the characters with their heads off in their lounge.”
On Disney’s early influence on him:
“I’ll never forget the Disney TV show, the first time I saw Clarence Nash doing the voice of Donald Duck. I was riveted. When you’re 8 years old, you don’t really put it together. ... That gave me a vision of something an actor would do and something I really wanted to do myself. So, eventually, when I was able to do voiceover for animated cartoons, it fulfilled a lifelong dream of mine. It’s something I really aspired to.”
On his place in the “Star Wars” past:
“In my mind, there was a beginning, and a middle and an end for me and my association with George’s trilogy. It was firmly in the past. When the prequels came out, I watched from a distance, but I was totally fine.”
On preparing for “Star Wars VII”:
“I’ve altered my diet. I’ve started working out. There’s that. But on the film itself: I toured the departments, I’ve looked at wardrobe, and I saw the creature shop. I went around and met all the cast people, saw the technicians working on some new things.”
On “Star Wars” spoilers:
“This is a whole different world … The first one, no one cared. The second one there was a lot of interest, but it was before the Internet. … I tell people we’re not trying to annoy you or tease you or play some massive game. Basically what the goal is to keep the surprises for the movie instead of spoiling them on the Internet.”
On George Lucas’ vision for the characters:
“He always liked the idea of seeing the original characters as elderly characters.”
On saying yes to “Star Wars VII”:
“Look, I’m aware that a lot of people don’t care one way or another, but for the UPFs – the ultra passionate fans – they would come after me like the angry townspeople with torches in the old Frankenstein pictures. I would have a lot to answer for if I didn’t at least try to make the effort. It’s not like I had a choice. I feel like I was called up for service by the Selective Service.”
“I hadn’t seen Tony Daniels or Carrie [Fisher] or Harrison [Ford] or Peter Mayhew in ages. … I was wonderful to see them again, because I didn’t expect to. Again, this is all so unexpected. It’s like getting out that pair of pants you haven’t worn in five years and finding a 20-dollar bill in the pocket. Oh, this is nice.”
“I haven’t seen those movies since they were in movie theaters. I don’t watch them on home theater or DVD. There are people who are far more expert in it than I am. They know more, way more, about them than I do, and they care more. … You don’t have to love them, but I am surprised sometimes at how vehemently they get if they’re not satisfied, which is scary. I have this feeling that no matter what we do there’s going to be a faction that really is disappointed. You just can’t live up to that. Any kind of reunion type endeavor, whatever it is … you can never go home again.”
On Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm:
"I think he [George Lucas] really feels a great relief of passing this property into the right hands. I couldn’t be more exciting even nominally a part of the Disney family.”
On fan events and autographs:
“If you hit me up on the street I’m not going to charge you. I’ll sign what you want. It makes a big difference if you’re making an 8 year old happy as opposed to some guy who’s going to take that same autograph, turn it around, slap a ridiculous price and gouge the fans on the internet. I’m really torn. It makes us crazy because you feel like you’re trapped like that. There’s no way to make it go away. … That’s one thing that’s unpleasant. You’re trapped between the dealers and the fans.”
