The Best Joker Actor

Postby vexille » Fri Jul 25, 2008 1:20 am

Just wondered who anyone thought that whether Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson or the late Heath Ledger delivered the best portrayal of the "Joker" in Batman?

Oh, Heath Ledger by far. And it's very rare i think someone out acted Jack Nicholson. But Heath Ledger blew me away.

Heath Ledger of course. He was amazing in The Dark Knight.

The first Batman movie starring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson came out when I was seven years old. I thought Nicholson's portrayal was the sh*t. In many ways, I still do. However, after seeing Heath Ledger in the second Dark Knight movie, it makes it all the sadder that he's dead now. He had many good years left in him.

Obviously, I'm not big on Batman. But from reading a few graphic novels with those involving the Joker, I think Ledger nailed it... a totally twisted and demented sociopathic who's nothing short of terrifying. Damn brilliant.

Well, I think Nicholson and Ledger both did very good jobs for their respective parts. I can't attest to Cesar Romero since I never really saw the old series. Anyway; Nicholson played the Joker as more an absolute loon than anything else. Whereas Ledger's Joker was more a complete psychopath. Both did well, I thought. They just did two rather different things with the characters.
