Mark Hamill Crashes ‘Kimmel’ to Auction Off Luke Skywalker’s Capri Pants (Video)

Actor tries to sell his (fake) memorabilia after hearing Han Solo’s jacket is estimated to sell for $1.3 million

After hearing that Han Solo’s jacket from “The Empire Strikes Back” is expected to sell for $1.3 million at an auction, “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill tried to sell one of Luke Skywalker’s items on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Thursday.

“I got a special offer for one night, and one night only — I’m prepared to offer your audience a pair of Luke Skywalker’s capri pants!” Hamill said after crashing the stage during Kimmel’s speech.

After showing a pair of red capri pants to the audience, he said, “I do accept PayPal and Venmo.”

When Kimmel expressed doubt that the pants were actually in the movie, Hamill showed a picture (that’s obviously been photoshopped) of Luke doing a handstand in the capris during Yoda’s training. Hamill also said he wore the pants in “Return of the Jedi.”

“I loved the feeling of the cool breeze on my ankles when I was fighting Dad Vader,” he joked. “Oh, the memories!”

Asking for $100,000 seemed too steep for the capris so Hamill offered a reduced price of $50,000, and he’d throw in a Chewbacca hairball. But still — no bidder.

Han Solo’s jacket from “The Empire Strikes Back” will be auctioned off next month, held by Prop Store in London’s BFI IMAX. The item is listed from £500,000 to £1 million (or $650,000 to $1.3 million)
