Wiseau, in collaboration with Nerdist, shared an ‘audition tape’ of himself delivering some of the most memorable lines of Heath Ledger, Mark Hamill and Jack Nicholson’s versions of the Joker. The story of its making was recreated in Franco’s The Disaster Artist, which was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. Jared Leto currently plays the Joker in DC’s Extended Universe films. He first played the character in Suicide Squad and is expected to reprise his role in at least two new films. Negotiations are also underway with Joaquin Phoenix, who is expected to star in director Todd Philip’s independent Joker origin story, produced by Martin Scorsese.
