The kid who plays Darth Vader looks exactly like Mark Hamill

The child who played Darth Vader in the cute Volkswagen commercial was on the Today show this morning, and uh, he looks a lot like Luke Skywalker. Like, a lot a lot. Max Page, 6, had never seen Star Wars when he booked the spot, which is his first national commercial. Don’t watch the prequels, Max! Save yourself.

Watching little kids squirm on morning television makes me extremely uncomfortable, but mostly this segment makes me wonder if young Max was cast partially for the Star Wars family resemblance and not just his terrific Force hand gestures…

I’m hoping for a follow-up spot with a young Boba Fett, PopWatchers. What about you?
