And no, Jack doesn't exactly play The Joker as himself, but as mentioned many times above, he does play him similarly to some of his other roles - such as The Shining - and the parallels are there to see.
I watched The Shining yesterday in fact, and while I can see why they would choose Nicholson for Joker based on this performance, but I don't see any 'Joker' in 'Jack Torrance'. They are completely different characters. Ok, they are both homicidal maniacs, in their own way. But they are not completely the same, so I don't know what you mean by "parellels", maybe you can explain this.

That is a fairly good theory, actually.
