What We Do In The Shadows: Mark Hamill's Vengeful Vampire Explained

What We Do in the Shadows season 2 introduced a new vampire to the mix, played by none other than veteran actor and Star Wars legend, Mark Hamill.

What We Do in the Shadows has too much fun as it meshes the mundane with the supernatural while a group of vampires attempt to blend in and adjust to normal lives in Staten Island. The series never fails to find inventive new angles on traditional ideas involving vampires or other creatures. Season 2 of the show has also worked especially hard to not only flesh out its main cast to a larger degree, but to also introduce more eccentric supporting characters into the show’s growing universe.

All of the actors on What We Do in the Shadows find the right sweet spot on how to play these deadly creatures in a highly disarming way. All of the main characters are fantastic, but some of the most memorable episodes in the series are the ones where outsiders come in and get to play around. What We Do in the Shadows has been very smart with its guest star choices and episode 6, “On the Run”, brings in Hamill to play a very memorable foe for one of the main characters.

Mark Hamill’s character, Jim the Vampire, makes quite the entrance, as he holds a bitter grudge against Laszlo. This very regal vampire from San Diego rented a guest room in his beach house to Laszlo, but Laszlo failed to pay the last month’s rent or the security deposit when he’s unsatisfied with the facilities. Hamill’s Jim the Vampire has resented Laszlo for the past 167 years, and has tried to locate him so he can recoup his losses.

When Jim catches up with Lazlo, he gives him the option to either pay up or engage in a duel. Laszlo chooses the latter, but flees when things get tense. He’s able to buy some time with a new life and alias in Pennsylvania (it sounds like Transylvania), but Jim ultimately discovers him and the two are forced to engage in their duel after all. When the dust settles the two learn the error of their ways, make up, and Laszlo repays his debt to Jim by gifting him a Big Mouth Billy Bass.

Jim appears to be placated and takes up a more domestic life in Pennsylvania as the coach of the local girls’ volleyball team, but his anger towards Laszlo reignites when he learns that he has lied to him about his gift. With Jim now angrier than ever, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Hamill’s character turn into a yearly tradition on What We Do in the Shadows as someone who just wants to make life difficult for Laszlo.

Masked Singer: Rhino Revealed to Be Former Giants Pitcher Barry Zito

Rhino was revealed to be former Giants pitcher Barry Zito on Wednesday's episode of The Masked Singer, and now there are only three singers left.

Masked Singer: Rhino Revealed to Be Former Giants Pitcher Barry Zito

Rhino was revealed to be former Giants pitcher Barry Zito on Wednesday's episode of The Masked Singer. The final performance from Rhino, "Humble and Kind" by Tim McGraw, wasn't enough to advance another round.

Zito was one of the harder guesses to make. Judge Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg was the first to predict Rhino was Zito. There was one clue that had a map of Missouri with a crown. His wife was Miss Missouri. Rhino also spoke of being a "giant." The audience may not have been thinking of baseball at the time, because that can refer to many different things. His former roommate talked about surfing, and this checked out, since he went to college at University of California, Santa Barbara and University of Southern California. One of the clues, 75 cents, was a nod to his number during his playing career. He used baseball phrases in other clues, like saying, "just a bit outside" and remarking he did not "enjoy long walks by the water." He mentioned "crashing and burning" and "hitting rock bottom" which pointed to his downfall during Zito's baseball career. In addition to "Humble and Kind," Zito performed "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" by Righteous Brothers and "Tracks of My Tears" by Smokey Robinson.

Jenny and Ken Jeong guessed Rhino was Zito, while Nicole Sherzinger predicted Rhino was Jason Aldean. Guest judge Jay Pharoah assumed Zito was Blake Shelton. Robin Thicke took a stab at Trace Adkins. It was a compliment to Zito that he was mistaken for so many country stars. In addition to the incorrect guesses from Wednesday, Rhino was also confused for singers Vince Gill and Sam Hunt, as well as Derek Jeter, Tim Tebow and David Hasselhoff. Zito told Variety of the wrong predictions, "These are all super entertaining, they’re guessing these things and I’m in the costume, just laughing onstage when they’re throwing these names out.”

Zito hopes that his appearance on The Masked Singer helps his music career. He said to Variety, he plans on coming out with music "that is different sonically, a little more electronic, a little more poppy, but still with that songwriting heartbeat underneath. I’m super excited to really have more control sonically of what’s happening.”

Now, only three contestants remain. Night Angel, Turtle and Frog are still in the competition, and our expert has figured out the best attempt at who each of them are under the costume. We'll have to wait until next week to find out for sure.
