Mark Hamill might be a Star Wars legend, but after his powerful performance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it looks like Lucasfilm's Luke Skywalker is getting other offers from other projects.

History Channel's series Knightfall has just recently been renewed for a second season on the network with a new showrunner, and it looks like Hamill has just been cast to take part in the show.

According to a report by Variety, Hamill has just recently been invited to join Knightfall, taking on the role of battle-hardened Knight Templar veteran of the Crusades, Talus. Talus is a gritty man, surviving captivity for more than a decade in the Holy Land, and in the second season of the series, the character is going to be seen training the order's brand new initiates.

Hamill is a great choice for the role. Not only does the Star Wars legend have star power, but he's also great at acting gritty and difficult men – remember how he played the jaded version of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

Meanwhile, aside from Hamill, Tom Forbes has also been cast as the character Prince Louise, "the violent and unpredictable son of King Philip and heir to the throne." Genevieve Gaunt has also been cast to join the series, set to play King Philip's daughter, the "she-wolf of France."

The second season premiere of Knightfall has yet to be announced.
