Re: In Heath We Trust: A Ledgerbration: The TDK Joker Appreciation Thread - Part 1
Heath was such a talented actor.
But I remember when I first heard that they casted him as Joker - I was WTF? Not because of his acting skills but because he didn't look like the Joker from the comics. So I never thought of Heath before (I was on the Crispin Glover road, like many of us). But, yes, Nolan knew absolutely what he was doing.
I am not a Nolanite but his castings mostly are perfect. And Heath as Joker was the best choice he ever made.
