Heath Ledger documentary gives us a glimpse into his Joker diary

It's crazy to think that Heath Ledger only lived to be 28 years old, but he left behind some films that were undoubtedly made better thanks to his contributions. The biggest of which would be the seminal DC flick, THE DARK KNIGHT. The documentary film, HEATH LEDGER: TOO YOUNG TO DIE, traces his evolution from the young Australian actor, who very early on displayed an enormous gift for acting, to the complex character actor he became. A clip from the doc has been making the rounds lately and it showcases the diary he created to help engross himself into the role of The Joker.

The Joker has been played by some phenomenal actors over the years and the great thing about his character is that allows each actor their give own interpretation. Not everyone may be sold on Jared Leto's iteration, but at least we can say that he's going to deliver something different. Ledger wasn't my favorite Joker (Mark Hamill, baby!) but I wouldn't fault anyone who says that he is.

The next iteration of The Joker will be seen in David Ayer's SUICIDE SQUAD, hitting theaters on August 5, 2016.
