Heath Ledger as the Joker? I’m not seeing it so far. He’s not a bad actor but surely the part requires someone a little less flat-footed; a little bit edgy. (If they really need to cast a good looking bloke I think Christian Bale would actually be great for the part, but I hear he’s busy.)
On the plus side they’re calling the film The Dark Knight, which is a classy decision, and Christopher Nolan is still at the helm. On that basis I’m willing to give Ledger a fair chance, but so far I just don’t feel it.
