I got roped in with the story of the dragon lady and her giant husband’s love for each other only for him to die. sadness enter stage right. then there’s freaking incest everywhere you turn. then and this is the part i will never get my head around- they’ve had 8 years of summer and winter is coming? wftasdsli?!!
Jack Nicholson, who played the Joker in 1989 - and who was furious he wasn’t consulted about the creepy role - offered a cryptic comment when told Ledger was dead. “Well,” Nicholson told reporters in London early Wednesday, “I warned him.”
That last quote gave me chills
Really? Interesting if true
I read something that said he told him not to do it. Joker is one of, if not the, most sadistic villains. He kills to kill. There’s no method. Which is why all of the previous portrails were campy or jokey.
There is no way you can portray a character like that and not bring home even the smallest bits of it. It’s kind of sad. The Joker was scary as shit, and I honestly believe that getting into that character messed with his head.
It would be really interesting to see the notebook Ledger kept while working up the character, maybe it did mess with his head.. and that quote is something to think about, if true.
well shit you know when jack nicholson thinks something is too creepy it’s probably too creepy
thank you for contributing to this discussion your thoughtful asterisk makes a very good point

you bring up war, poverty, or famine in a conversation and you’ll find a barren vacuum of opinions. you announce what kind of phone you have and you’ll spend the next hour enduring an obnoxious holy war.
