    I think the whole point is for him to look creepy guys, he is after all the joker.

    But I still don’t get why him, there’s a ton of other actors I think, better capable of playing the joker.

    Was it politics or what that got him the part?

    Oh yeah, psychopaths are no fun unless they wear slick makeup and nice suits. So lovable!

    Go get some bubblegum.

    I’m ready for Heath’s version. The guy’s too good.

    Heath is a superb actor and will doubtless be the definitive Joker. Nicholson relied too much on the makeup to do the acting. His will be seen in retrospect as simplistic and one dimensional. Ledger will give it really evil vibes. I can’t wait.

    What an inspired performance. Heath Ledger will be greatly missed, what a tremendous loss.

    As an Australian, I am so sad that one of our own has left us before his time – not only a great actor and person, but a great Aussie, who loved his country and never forgot where he came from.
    He will be the definitive Joker – he could do anything, and with such intensity and drive, it comes across the screen so clearly how brilliant an actor he was. Go and watch ‘Candy’ or ‘Two Hands’ (Aussie movies) and u will see what I mean.
    God Bless Heath – all of Australia is grieving for you… we are sad we will not see your smile or feel your presence anymore, but we will love u always.
