The Joker? You're joking...
WTF? This is Heath Ledger as Jack Napier, aka the Joker, in the upcoming Batman: The Dark Knight film starring Christian "American Psycho"Bale as the caped crusader. Clearly this ain't your Caesar Romero/Marc Hamill/Jack Nicholson clown prince of crime. This is a goth, scary m-f, and I am soooooo itching to see this movie now!!! Note the "smile" scar--a bit ghoulish. Certainly not the symetrical evil grin on Jack Nicholson...wait, was that make-up or just Jack? Heath sort of resembles a young George W. Bush after a post- rugby game cocaine bender and accompanying gay sex (aka "That Yale thing" hahahaha).
Rumor has it that Bale, who's acted on stage doing Shakespeare since age 8 been in films since age 9 ("Empire of the Sun") can't stand Heath's method acting and general flakiness. Should make for cinema verite in the butt-whipping sequences.
