Actor Mark Hamill, who is best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the famed "Star Wars" movie series, insulted President-elect Donald Trump's Cabinet selections in a recent interview, labeling them "despicable people."

"I'm in total denial," Hamill told the Daily Beast of Trump's pending presidency. "[I]f you look at what’s being assembled for our government it’s like, yikes. It’s a who’s-who of really despicable people."

The Jedi master explained that he had been tempted to move to Canada since Election Day but has thought better of that idea.

"It’s tempting to say, ‘Well, I’m moving to Canada. I can’t stand it.’ But in other ways, it’s a challenge to stay and defend your country and do what you think is right and not retreat and hide under the covers," he said, while promoting his new TV web series "Pop Culture Quest."

So far, Trump has announced a myriad of Cabinet picks, including attorney general, CIA director, national security adviser, U.N. ambassador and education secretary.
