Mark Hamill will play The Trickster again in 'The Flash' (Video)

Mark Hamill

Mark Hamill returns in a brand new interpretation of James Jesse (aka The Trickster), a role he originated on the 90's "Flash" series. In this new iteration, The Trickster is an anarchist terrorist con man serving a life sentence in Iron Heights who helps Barry (Grant Gustin) and Det. West (Jesse L. Martin) to foil the city-wide attacks of a wannabe Trickster eagerly following in the original's deadly footsteps. The episode will reunite him with John Wesley Shipp who went up against him as the original "Flash" on the CBS version.

The Trickster will debut in episode 17 of "The Flash," which will air sometime in 2015. Hamill joins other familiar faces from the 1990s-era CBS series. John Wesley Shipp played Barry Allen (aka The Flash) himself in the CBS version of the show, and plays Barry's father in the CW series, and Amanda Pays has reprised her role as Dr. Tina McGee starting with this week's episode.
