Lakeith Stanfield Tells 'Kimmel' He Wants To Be Next 'Joker': 'Wait Till They See Me Do It'!

LaKeith Stanfield is ready to be the next Joker!

While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night (January 29), the Knives Out star opened up about his love for the DC character.

“I just like dressing up and I also love the Joker, so there you go. You got both things,” Lakeith told Jimmy when asked about his recent Joker cosplay at the premiere of the Oscar-nominated Joaquin Phoenix movie.

“I’d love to play the Joker. That’d be beautiful,” Lakeith continued before Jimmy questioned if he’d still be up for it after Phoenix‘s high praise for his take. “That makes me go ‘Wait till they see me do it’. Also, I make my own Joker movies at home with my own personal camera. All you gotta do is dress up and make your own. Why not? I still had the makeup on so I was like, ‘Let me just keep going with it.’”

LaKeith also talked about going to modeling school, acting in Uncut Gems with Adam Sandler and Kevin Garnett, and his new movie The Photograph with Issa Rae.
