There is a similarity in his acting style to playing psycho/quirky characters. That's why I always get why people like this think some of his performances are similar;

Not the characters themselves, but the performance playing the characters. But one dimensional and zero range do not belong in the same sentence as Jack Nicholson.

I thought his performance was okay, but it didn't blow me away. I'm not really impressed with Nicholson's acting style. I much preferred Mark Hamill's and Heath Ledger's Jokers.

His physique also took me out of the movie a bit, because I couldn't imagine the Joker as a portly man. The Joker in my mind has always been lean and lanky.
