Hamlin appeared in Movie Movie with George C. Scott in 1978, but his big-screen break was a starring role in the 1981 Greek mythology epic Clash of the Titans. He appeared in the music video and sang in the choir on the song “Voices That Care”. Afterwards, his career faltered somewhat with such box office flops such as Making Love. In 1986, Hamlin’s popularity skyrocketed when he starred on the highly popular NBC TV drama L.A. Law from 1986 to 1991. During this time he was voted as People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 1987. Hamlin decided to leave the series at the end of the fifth season and tried to revive his movie career. However, this was unsuccessful and so far he has only starred in B movies and direct-to-video features.
Hamlin appeared in two 1992 episodes of Batman: The Animated Series, in each episode as a separate character. In the episode “Joker’s Wild,” Hamlin played the role of Cameron Kaiser, a businessman who sinks all his money into a casino, then counts on the Joker to destroy it in order to collect on the insurance policy from a reputable company. In 2001 he starred in Bratty Babies a TV comedy.
