"The Force" is most definitely not with Mitt Romney. Or so says Luke Skywalker.

Mark Hamill, the 60-year-old actor who played the young Jedi in the original "Star Wars" trilogy, is warning voters that the GOP presidential candidate "only imitates human behavior. He's not actually human himself."

Hamill made his comments to the entertainment website OnTheRedCarpet.com at Comic-Con in San Diego. 

"It goes back to Robin Hood," he continued. "People that are fighting for the middle class and the have-nots. It's something that we see even playing out in the presidential race.

"And if you don't vote for Barack Obama, you're insane -- 'cuz without him I think the middle class will completely disappear."

Hamill also compared the former Massachusetts governor to "The Thing" and cited a recent incident at a campaign rally in New Hampshire as proof.

"Do you know he had lemonade on the campaign trail last week (and) he said: 'Lemon. Wet. Good.' Really, he said that! So God bless him, I'm enjoying him running for office," Hamill said.

The actor has yet to tweet about the interview, which has gone viral on sites like the Drudge Report, Yahoo and Breitbart.com.
