Anyone who follows Mark Hamill on Twitter (and if you don’t, you really should), will know that he’s a big John Cleese fan.
Everyone’s favourite Jedi isn’t shy about it.
Exhibit A: A response he wrote to someone back in 2018, describing the Fawlty Towers star as “a comic idol”.
Cleese is a comic idol of mine. (I’m watching Fawlty Towers as I write this.) 😂

We don’t know if the pair have ever met IRL, but — on Tuesday — Cleese was introduced to Hamill on Twitter — in GIF form.
Cleese was quick to respond.
Less than 30 minutes later, Hamill himself waded in.
Cleese has yet to reply to that, but his fellow Monty Python star Eric Idle certainly seemed to appreciate it.
Your move, Fawlty.
