Check out video above featuring Mark Hamill telling the story about how he pitched Luke Skywalker going to the Dark Side to George Lucas following Empire Strikes Back.

The video recently surfaced from ten years ago when Hamill appeared on Jon Favreau's Dinner for Five series, which interestingly enough also has JJ Abrams as a guest.

Some fans are speculating Abrams may have turned Luke to the Dark Side in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

"As an actor, that would be more fun to play," Hamill noted about an evil Luke. "When we finished [Episode II], I figured that's what will be the pivotal moment. I'll have Han Solo in my crosshairs, and I'll be about to kill him, or the Princess, or somebody that we care about." 

Hamill also offered up some details on how his evil Luke would look like, which seems what Lucas may have borrowed from for Anakin's own look in the prequels (via vulture).

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" hits December 18th.
