Prince of Crime – Jared Leto as the Joker


About 10 hours ago, it was announced that the latest actor to play the Joker will be Jared Leto.

Now I have my reservations about this, but everyone else had them when it was announced that Heath Ledger would be playing the Joker and look how that turned out(he won an oscar).

Thanks to Newsrama we have some fan reactions to the news of Heath Ledger being cast as The Joker in The Dark Knight.

“Heath? let’s reminisce on the days of A Knight’s Tale and Ten Things I Hate About You. Heath? The Joker? Bad casting. Bad joke.”
“probably the worst casting of all time.”
“On no, it’s wrong on every level.”
“This is totally bull. I do not at all like this choice.”
“And now begins the second downfall of the Batman series… I hope this is all a joke”
“I am NOT seeing this movie if he is in it.”
“The Joker is a character that needs an actor with gravity. Not some little twerp who got lucky.”

I’m sorry to the Leto Fans and I know he is an amazing actor but the first thing that  came to mind when I saw this was – Tik kop(crystal meth addict) , trying to stay on trend with his neon hair.
And the Joker fandom is split fan reaction #Jokerleto

Hopefully he will do well and prove most of us wrong.
