‘The Machine’s’ Real-Life Story Was Enough To Hook Mark Hamill

(L to R) Albert (Mark Hamill) and Bert (Bert Kreischer) in Screen Gems’ THE MACHINE.

For years, comedian Bert Kreischer — a.k.a. The Machine — has made the story of his trip to Russia and his inadvertent run-in with the Russian mafia part of his stand-up routine. Now, the story has been made into a film, also called The Machine. Mark Hamill stars alongside Kreischer, playing his father, and he talked about what sold him on the project.
