Joker/TDK Thread #26: "As you know, madness is like gravity, all it takes is a little push."

The Dark Knight Appreciation












X





Trivia:
1. This is the first Batman film to not have "Batman" in the title.
2. Robin Williams, Lachy Hulme, Paul Bettany, and Adrien Brody all expressed interest for the role of the Joker before Heath Ledger was cast.
3. When asked, "Why Heath Ledger as the Joker?" Christopher Nolan said, "Because he's fearless."
4. The Joker's character is based on his first two appearances in the comic books, as well as his portrayal in the graphic novel "The Killing Joke." To prepare for the role, Heath Ledger lived alone in a hotel room for a month researching the character and developing his performance, which he claims is based upon Sid Vicious and the character of Alex in A Clockwork Orange (1971). Ledger found the role extremely difficult, and suffered insomnia as a result.
5. Heath Ledger's sudden death on January 22, 2008 prompted immediate speculation as to the state of this film. Late the same day, Warner Bros. released a statement declaring that Ledger had completed all his scenes and post-production work, thus making the Joker the actor's final completed appearance in a film.
6. Sir Michael Caine said of Heath Ledger's performance as the Joker: "He is going to surprise a lot of people. He is absolutely terrifying. I'd say that he is the scariest thing I've ever seen on screen."
