The Joker acts

08.09.2007
By now we've all been treated to several glimpses of Heath Ledger as the Joker in THE DARK KNIGHT. We've heard what he sounds like and have even seen some video. But now we've got a description from someone who was an extra while they were filming and London, and things sound good:

As regards to how Heath Ledger *seemed* as the Joker, he seemed like he WAS the Joker, and didn't need to let anyone know it - rather contained, but ready to explode at any moment in an unexpected fashion. Menacing, but more because he seemed like he was probably crazy, and maybe violent, rather than that he was TRYING to scare you. (and by the way, all he did during the scenes I was in was sit in his holding cell, reacting and listening...so, he's a very fine actor if I imbibed all this from just watching him sit there...) He didn't talk a lot between takes, but he also wasn't "Don't approach me!" in his manner - a real pro, in other words. In short, he seemed just like the Joker SHOULD seem.

I'm not going to say anything else, because I've exhausted any thoughts and opinions on the Joker. I'll just let the man's words speak for themselves.

Extra Tidbit: I said before that I've run out of Joker tidbits and that I'd start giving you guys my lunch from now on. Today: Penne salad with feta.

DEPENDS

It depends on your acting style. If you're a hardcore method actor it can be difficult to turn it off.

A REAL PRO?

I cant wait to see this and all but... when you really think about it, wouldnt a real pro actor, be able to jump in and out of roles when he is off camera and still pull off a dynamite performance, and not have to stay in character the entire length of the shoot. I know others have done it like jim carrey. but i dunno guess im just being too Technical...

yup

besides, maybe I WANTED to kill, and just couldn't bring myself to do it without someone pushing me to it.

Now if you'll excuse me, there's a useless politican out there waiting for me.

Jokerfish, Jokerfish, Jokerfish... Why mention it if you didn't want at least one person to say it?

Don't know what that really tells you except that some suck-up extra was wishing he had the stones to go up and talk to the guy. Still, wait and see for yourself, then get the scoop (edited of all the back-biting and syndicating and complete with fawning praise for everyone involved) on the DVD.

Hahaha

"In short, he seemed just like the Joker SHOULD seem."

Then he didn't have a fake grin or drunken Courtney Love look, I suppose.

most good...

I am personally the kind of dude that will reserve judgment until the movie is released. But at the same time, I'm the kind of dude that completely believes that it is a physically impossible that Nolan can fuck up a Batman movie.
