Heath Ledger is The Joker

Yup, Heath Ledger has been cast as the Joker in the next Batman movie. At first, I was like "what the hey?", but the picture below makes me think it might just work.

Dude, I can totally see it ... Ledger's a good actor when he has a decent director, and Nolan scored major points with Batman Begins.

The other rumor is Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin, but I have mixed feelings about that. On one hand, I like him as an actor, but I still don't think adding more villains to the cast makes the movie any better. Especially when the other villain is The Joker.

No doubt, man. I think Heath Ledger is great but you have to admit his is not the first name to pop into your head when someone says The Joker.
Ditto on Hoffman.

I'm all for 2 villains in a film as long as the second is more of a high level mook. The Penguin is WAY too huge a character to put next the The Joker although I think I see where they are going with it and it may fall in line nicely with the comics.

Its gonna be a great fuckin' movie regardless. ;)
