Adam Scott Shakes With Joy Upon Meeting His Idol Mark Hamill

We believe that Kristen Bell’s new mission is to return the good karma that once united her with a sloth for her birthday by reducing other celebrities to quivering piles of emotion. That’s how she spent Star Wars Day yesterday; subbing in for Jimmy Kimmel, she welcomed Adam Scott, who it turns out is a major Star Wars fan. In fact, he wrote Mark Hamill a letter when he was about two years old, inviting him to his birthday party. Of course, Hamill was probably just a little bit busy with the release of The Empire Strikes Back, and Scott never begrudged him for not showing up.

That doesn’t mean, however, that Scott didn’t start shaking when the iconic theme song started up.

Just watch at Scott as he doesn’t dare to believe it (“No way. No f–king way!”), and then out comes Luke Skywalker and he’s literally shaking, and in that moment he is all of us:

Can Kristen Bell have her own late-night show? Because this kind of thing never gets old.
