If you haven’t heard already, Acadamy Award-nominated Heath Ledger (Brokeback Mountain) has officially signed on as The Joker in the Batman Begins sequel, The Dark Knight!
It’s an out-of-left-field choice, but I dig it. Casting Ledger as the Joker proves that TDK‘s take on the Clown Prince of Crime will be different from any other interpretation. I’m already excited and the movie’s still two years away!
Speaking of updating the Oscar post, if rumors are to be believed, Oscar winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman (Capote) has been offered the role of Oswald Cobblepot.
