Heath Is The Joker

It has been officially confirmed that Heath Ledger will be The Joker in the next Batman movie. Christian Bale will return as Batman but no word on Katie Holmes yet. Earlier reports included her in the sequel but this time the announcement is all about Heath. The good news for Michelle is that Heath will most likely have to shave that beard for the role.

Again, have you never heard of an actor getting buff for a role? Sheesh. As long as the director doesn't suck, Heath will be amazing. I love him, scruffy or cleanshaven, surly or friendly.

Can't wait till it comes out! Katie was boring in it and she almost turned me off the movie I too hope she's NOT back on! I can't see Heath as joker but I'll give him a chance he might blow me away who knows? I just had a thought: Johnny Depp! he would have been GREAT!!! love that guy!

Luna, would you rather see your fiance kiss another woman? Are you homophobic, or what? It's called ACTING, and both Heath and Jake gave wonderful performances in a spectacular film.

in having trouble seeing Heath as the Joker, but I'd sit through anything to see him lose that ugly beard.

i liked it too... the characters were interesting... i get that studios don't want to risk a bunch of money on an unproven idea, but when you're basically making rocky V over and over again, it's a pretty sad state...

"Garden State" is a great movie and the soundtrack rocks.

It's a prequel. That's why they're bringing the joker back. He hasn't died yet in this movie. I'm not a big Heath fan, but okay. I'll play along and be happy for him.

honestly, i'm desperate for an original idea in a movie right now... i don't care who's in it...

I think Heath is hot, even when he's all scruffy. hehe. And honestly, you never know if someone is going to be able to pull off a role or not. He definitely has talent so I'm just going to wait and see what he brings to the table.

It still grosses me out that he was kissing another man for a film, I dont care if it was acting i couldnt bare seeing my fiancee kissing another man! Ewww it would soo put me off him!

He's such a fabulous actor, he can pull off any role. I love him and think he's hot no matter how grubby he gets.

It's good to be back. I watched E! for the majority of the day yesterday, so I'm just catching up on the convo! Which is, somedays, better than the "news."
caligirl1201 caligirl1201 10 years
They have potential, but not looking so good in this pic. Heath is too hot to develop a pooch and too much facial hair. I think he could pull off the Joker, but I'm not really into Batman so really I don't care.
