Might another actor attempt to fill the impressive shoes left by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight?

At last night’s Golden Globe Awards, producer Chuck Roven told MTV that he and The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan and writer David Goyer were “talking and thinking” about the next film.

“We have to separate the actors from the role,” said Roven. “On a personal level, Heath was a friend of mine. We had worked together before The Dark Knight, but I still think that The Dark Knight is its own thing, and we have to separate them."

What a Joker

Might another actor dare to take on The Joker? Would you wanna see one try?

He sticks the blade in my mouth. "Lets put a smile on that face!" And..... Why so serious?
