Heath Ledger reportedly received the role of the Joker in the next Batman movie sometime last week. He is believed to have edged out both Robin Williams and Steve Buscemi who also had their eyes on the role.
Boy, is this good casting or what? I don't know about you, but when I think of Batman's arch-rival, the first thought that comes to mind is a gay cowboy. How appropriate is this?
Relatedly, I don't know how well Williams or Buscemi could have pulled off this part, but I certainly would have been very interested to see them try.
