I was surprised as anyone to hear that Heath Ledger was selected to player the Joker in the Batman Begins sequel tentaively titled The Dark Knight. I am happy about the idea of the Joker in the new franchise but I was picturing someone manical and crazed. I did love Heath in Brokeback Mountain but not as the Joker. Everyone surely will dismiss him because he is a 'pretty boy', but I just don't think he has the right look. Someone more gritty. But what are we to expect? The Scarecrow was super chiseled Cillian Murphy in the last movie.
