Heath Ledger, The Joker and the ‘Dark Knight’ Audio
Back in January, after the untimely death of actor Heath Ledger, we posted audio from an interview we had conducted with Ledger as part of a special edition of ComicMix Radio. In the interview, Ledger discussed his reasons for taking the role of The Joker in the Batman Begins sequel, as well as his thoughts on how best to prepare for the role. With the release ofThe Dark Knight fast approaching and Ledger’s passing certainly looming large over the project, we thought the interview might be worth another listen for ComicMix fans.
With that in mind, we present (or re-present, in this case) the ComicMix Radio interview with Heath Ledger for The Dark Knight.
For more on The Dark Knight, make sure you don’t miss our special Dark Knight-themed edition of ComicMix Six, featuring The Joker’s Greatest Victories, as well as our recent list of Must-Read Batman Stories to get you caught up with the Dark Knight.
To be honest, I never really cared for Heath Ledger. Saw him in The Patriot but he didn't last very long in that movie. Never cared to sit through Brokeback Mountain. I have seen THE DARK KNIGHT two times now. Man oh man! Ledger's Joker ranks with Hopkins' Hanibal Lecter and DeNiro's psycho in Cape Fear. He deserves the posthumous Oscar for his work here! Sad that it was his final act but now he will forever be remembered as The Joker! Sorry Jack!
