CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Content Marketing Institute (CMI) just announced, Mark Hamill, actor, producer, director and writer, will be the closing keynote speaker for Content Marketing World 2016. The largest content marketing event in the world returns to Cleveland, Ohio, September 6-9, 2016.

It’s official! Award-winning actor @HamillHimself will keynote #CMWorld this September!

Hamill may be best-known for his role as Luke Skywalker in the George Lucas’ original Star Wars trilogy but he’s also world-renowned for his BAFTA winning work as DC’s iconic villain the Joker; a role he has portrayed more than any other actor in both animation and video games. Most recently he can be seen alongside Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service. He has recently reprised his role as the Trickster on CW’s hit TV Show, The Flash. Hamill is also an experienced Broadway actor and prolific voice-over talent. Hamill recently received critical acclaim for his reprisal of The Joker in the 2009 action-adventure video game, Arkham Asylum, which is based on the DC Comics superhero Batman.

“People know Mark as an actor, but many don’t realize he’s also a producer, director, writer and content creator,” explains Joe Pulizzi, founder, Content Marketing Institute, and author of Content Inc. “He shares challenges many content marketers face. We’re ecstatic he’s going to share his unique point of view on the creation process.”

This is the sixth and biggest year yet for #CMWorld, with an expected 4,000 marketers from more than 50 countries in attendance for the Sci-fi inspired theme, “Content Strikes Back.” Hamill will deliver the closing keynote on Thursday, September 8, 2016 at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland.
