'The Room's Tommy Wiseau Auditions To Play The Joker

Scary Wiseau in his audition belted out'What doesn't kill you make you stranger

The Joker is now being portrayed by Jared Leto in the DC Extended Universe although it is now rumored that the role will be taken by either Joaquin Phoenix or Leonardo DiCaprio in the upcoming origin film coming from Hangover director Todd Phillips.

After achieving mainstream fame thanks to James Franco's The Disaster Artist and getting to walk onstage during the Golden Globes, Wiseau teamed with Nerdist to put together an audition tape to play the Clown Prince of Crime.

The short skit features Wiseau in full Heath Ledger get-up auditioning for the role of The Joker, presumably for the upcoming film. And why not? They're both self-made men, both constantly laughing, and both do their own thing no matter how odd it seems to everyone else.


Meanwhile, The Disaster Artist is out on Blu-ray on March 13. Of course, The Joker can only be as great as his Batman, which is why we needed someone who can drum up some great onscreen chemistry with Tommy. Sestero's Batman challenges him, but Wiseau's Joker says he wouldn't kill the Batman. It's not likely Warner Bros are even going to have the conversation seriously, but maybe it'll get him some work somewhere else? One person we know won't be taking on the role, should a deal with Phoenix not be worked out, is The Room writer, director, producer, and star Tommy Wiseau. What a story that would be, Mark.

Wiseau has been an internet favorite since The Room became a cult hit on the midnight screening circuit.
