John Leguizamo Would Love to be the New Joker to Represent Latinos

Desde Hollywood

John Leguizamo talked to Desde Hollywood about his new movie Kick-Ass 2 (out Aug. 16). You will get to enjoy that exchange soon, but we wanted to share what the actor had to say about another comic-book property.

He's a ballsy actor if he really wants to try and tackle The Joker. Every single time someone puts that makeup on they'll be measured of to what Heath Leger did with the character. That takes a whole buttload of guts.

if this has taught us anything is that never judge a book by its cover thus we get someone like ledger pulling this off too damn well

the new joker is going to have to be more insane so to me this person would have to top legers performace considering we are talking about a version set in the fictional universe now

No question at all DB . I'm on your side but I seriously thought that Heath was going to be an amazing Joker backj when he was announced as the guy. I wasn't one of the internet trolls saying BrokeBack Batman or whatever hate speech they were casting in his direction. When I first heard the teaser with him as the joker and he gave the laugh, I had chills.
