  • Question about Heath Ledger as The Joker...

    Is it true that a month before filming he stayed in a hotel room pretending he was the actual joker, writing diaries and shit like that?!

    To prepare for his role as the Joker, Heath Ledger lived alone in a hotel room for a month, formulating the character's psychology, posture and voice (the last one he found most difficult to do). He started a diary, in which he wrote the Joker's thoughts and feelings to guide himself during his performance. He was also given Alan Moore's comic "Batman: The Killing Joke" and "Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth" to read. Ledger also took inspiration from A Clockwork Orange (1971)'s Alex and Sid Vicious.

          Now that's method...

          Reminds me of Nic Cage actually filming himself while drunk so he could study his own speech and movement patterns in that altered mindstate in preparation for Leaving Las Vegas lol

              I read an interview with Heath some time ago where he showed the journalist the diary, and in it there was a list of what the Joker considered funny and on that list was shit like AIDS.

              2. Eminem
              3. Brother Ali
              4. Ludacris
              5. The Streets (Mike Skinner)

                    Yeah, I read about this some time back. It always fascinates me to know what actors put themselves through before a movie in order to nail a character.

                    Does anybody have a site which lists some of the shit that actors did before preparing for certain roles?

                        Yeah I think thats why Christian Bale admired him so much because he showed the same dedication for his movie roles as he did.

                          i don't think it did. it sounds like people just trying to make a story out of nothing.

                          like people from the cast have said, there's no way this film effected his health and ultimately lead to his death. it's kinda disrespectful for us to say it did, mainly since we don't know, and we weren't there.

                          but yea, heath was an amazing actor. i'm curious to know about how he got ready for a lot of other films as well.

                            Look into what Robert De Niro did to play the role of Jake "The Bull" Lamotta in Scorsese's Raging Bull.

                              yeah, i didn't think his performance, the amount of lines he had, would honestly depress him so much.. i'm sure it was the culmination of many things
