The Next Joker?  
So, does anyone agree with me that Matthew Lillard might make a pretty good Joker in the Batman Begins sequel?!

hmmm, I think he'd be all right, but there's just something off... of course, I never would have picked Cillian Murphy for the Scarecrow, but I certainly didn't mind watching him, nummy.

I have to agree. For some reason, in that one photo on the left, he reminds me of Jack Nicholson as the Joker because of his expressive face, but not otherwise.

But who knows? If I had to cast the Joker, I'd worry less about the face and more about the charismatic and mischevious personality that could pull him off.

Oh, yeah...Cillian was great! The two names that I've heard as possibles for the Joker are Crispin Glover (Love that idea) and Adrian Brody (REALLY dislike that one!).

Yep...I see it too! LOL! He's sexy in a creepy, naughty way!

I'd so have to agree. He has the comedic charisma to pull off the character, as well as the look and laugh. He has played a many great goof balls roles (in which The Joker is) but he has played several great serious roles (in which The Joker can be) he's young enough to play the role, due to the Batman Begins saga is set back in the past, so I'd have to say that is a great choice, but unfortunitly, we will have to let Hollywood be the finally decision maker

Thank you for that, foamy! That's about how I see it too!

Well just my point of view - what can I said great minds think alike ;)
Mark: MeDookyMarkboywondermark on July 6th, 2005 01:19 pm (UTC)
Well...I'm not gonna argue with THAT! :)

If they were making a quasi-comedic movie like Batman and Robin, I can see it. Were they trying to go for a more darker reality, I don't think he would be able to play the emotional complexity of the Joker.

Hi Ang! No...please...no more camp Batman movies!
I think Matthew IS capable of doing a good job as the homicidal maniac that the Joker truely is...I'm thinking of him in the first 'Scream' movie. Matthew has a creepy thing going that I think he can put to use!
My first choice is still Crispin Glover however! LOL!

I used to think he was so hot! The lithe body..the big smile...mmmmm....but since he played Shaggy, I just can't see him as hot anymore. *cries*

eeew! No! I hope they make the Joker more than just a silly clown. He wasnt a mobster either. He was a psycho! A serial killer!
How about Crispin Glover?

I think he should be a new sexy archnemesis, yet to be named. Maybe gay or bi, to spice things up a bit. The male version of Catwoman. ;)
Mark: Cute WiddleKittyboywondermark on July 6th, 2005 02:15 am (UTC)
LOL...did you know that there actually WAS a Catman at one time?!! :)

turtleinashell on July 6th, 2005 03:43 am (UTC)
WHAT?! No way!!! I'm checking this out.
Mark: Cute WiddleKittyboywondermark on July 6th, 2005 01:14 pm (UTC)
Strange but true! :)

Wow! If I ever saw it, I've forgotten it now. That's wild! lol! That would be a sleek, sexy couple now, wouldn't it? Catman and Batman!!! WOOT!
Mark: Batman Beginsboywondermark on July 6th, 2005 01:16 pm (UTC)
They would need a sexy, slinky boy to play Catman! :b
Mariaweirdpinay on July 6th, 2005 05:52 am (UTC)
Crispin Glover all the way.
I dislike the Adrien Brody idea as well. I don't think he can pull it off.
Mark: CRICHTONchickenboywondermark on July 6th, 2005 01:23 pm (UTC)
Let's hope Hollywood listens...Crispin is excellent!

I've heard Glover (I like that one) and Brody too (I could see Brody pulling it off, after seeing him play the mentally disabled character in The Village, there were some elements that made me think of the Joker in that character), and I could see Lillard, though oddly he seems to me to be a little too young, unless the Joker is necessarily supposed to be younger than Batman. The other name I heard bandied about somewhere which intrigues me greatly is Sean Penn. He's not the first person that comes to mind, but I do think he could do it acting-wise. Another actor who comes to mind for some reason is Billy Crudup, but I'm not sure why exactly.
Mark: BatDogboywondermark on July 6th, 2005 01:26 pm (UTC)
From what I understand, there is no decision yet and several names in the hat! Crispin is my favorite. I believe Paul Bettany is also under consideration.
