^^ And rightfully so. Ledgers Joker wasn't just the greatest comic book film/villain performance ever, it's easily one of the greatest film performances of all time. He stands alongside the greats like Darth Vader, and he appears on every top 10 list i've seen. Heath Ledgers Joker is, without a shadow of a doubt, legendary in every sense of the worse. iconic, bone chilling, scary, magnificent.
Michael Jai White (Gambol) talks about working with Nolan and Ledger. Some great stories he tells.
I hope that helps put to pasture the narrative that Ledger went "too deep" into the Joker and that's what killed him. It's always been sensationalist BS.
Saw this interview last night. I always suspected the role didn't somehow "warp" ledgers mind and I'm glad Michael finally put that b******* to rest. Really sounds like they had a blast on set together.
'Finding Steve McQueen' Star William Fichtner Shares Stories of Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott, and More
This is another recent interview of Michael Jai White offering more stories of his time on The Dark Knight and Heath Ledger. Apparently it wasn't supposed to be a death scene but simply The Joker giving Gambol a Glasgow smile. He also noted that some of the things from the script weren't in the finished movie and that we were supposed to see more of the Scarecrow in The Dark Knight.
Wow I was not aware that gamble wasn't supposed to actually die. Do you guys think it was actually dodto a violence issue? There was also a scene of Lau burning on top of the pile of cash that they cut. Anyway, fantastic interview!
Michael Jai White speculated that either Ledger's death might have effected that part of the story or that Nolan simply decided to cut this subplot out of the movie.
yeah, it could have. Pretty interesting how we haven't heard about it until now.
Randomly came across this on Youtube. What a crowd.
I saw this recently. Reminds me of my midnight showing on opening night back in 2008.
Thats messed up

^ That is incredible.
My god, that's a thing of beauty.
*Nods in agreement*
Well deserved. The power of Ledger's performance still stands strong.
Absolutely well deserved in every way. Easily the greatest performance in the last 21 years and one of the greatest performances in the history of the cinema. Also the greatest I've ever witnessed in the cinema.
