Jack Nicholson isn’t happy that he wasn’t asked to reprise his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight.
Nicholson’s Joker is one of THE great motion picture performances of ALL TIME.
But even though Jack’s Joker was perfect for that particular version of Batman, director Tim Burton took some crazy liberties with the character — such as making him the murderer of Bruce’s Wayne’s parents and then killing him off — that were foolish and senseless.
I’m expecting Heath Ledger’s Joker to be the first truly accurate depiction of The Joker that we’ve ever seen on film.
And keep in mind, too, that Nicholson’s comments aren’t about Heath Ledger in particular. He’s just upset that somebody else is playing it in general.
