Tommy Wiseau as The Joker is My New Favorite Thing
it's no surprise to our listeners that all of us on the Morning Show LOVE Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero. "The Room" is a movie we constantly quote on the show, especially since we have a Lisa; "You're tearing me apart, Lisa!" We were all super excited when we had Greg in the studio with us, we haven't had Tommy yet, but hopefully one day!
In March, while promoting "The Disaster Artist", Nerdist got Tommy Wiseau to do an audition tape for The Joker; specifically the one from "The Dark Knight." What we got was pure art.
Now, at the time, we didn't know that Joaquin Phoenix would be starring in a standalone Joker film. The release for that film has many fans waiting in anticipation as director Todd Phillips gives us clues about Phoenix's Joker. But no one forgot about Wiseau's Joker, certainly not Nerdist. Yesterday they released a full scene from 2008's "The Dark Knight" with Wiseau as Joker and none other than Greg Sestero as Batman.
This has to be my favorite thing ever! I've seen it over and over and I can't stop watching it! His accent along with the mannerisms and makeup combined give us a sneak peak of what a Joker standalone film would be like with Wiseau as the Clown Prince of Crime. Wiseau and Sestero are promoting their new film "Best F(r)iends " available on iTunes on September 25th.
