Last I heard, Paul Bettany is Chris Nolan's leading candidate.
BTW, ya'll realize the Joker isn't just one big punchline right? Comedy isn't the sole requirement to play him perfect. Joker's a psychopath afterall.
I agree on the age thing, if they are going to look for someone that old bring back Jack Nicholson!
I do think Penn could play the role rather well though.
Pessimists are well informed optimists
