This Casting is a Joke(r)

The Joker is the big movie of this fall, and people are curious just how much is society. What I mean is, the only thing (seemingly) that is turning this Joker, is how awful society is to him, as opposed to chemical poisoning, or the wartime PTSD that the Heath Ledger Joker was dealing with.

We have actors here from Marvel, other DC films, and some comedians as well. Hopefully this will help you recognize people in the movie theater, so you can focus on the movie and not ask yourself “where do I know him from?”

Joker > Joaquin Phoenix > Johnny Cash (Walk the Line) / Commodus (Gladiator)

Sophie Dumond >Zazie Beetz > Domino (Deadpool 2) / Van (Atlanta)

Murray Franklin > Robert De Niro > Travis Bickle (Taxi Driver) / Rupert Pupkin (The King of Comedy)

*note: Joker is said to be somewhat of a mix between these two movies. Robert De Niro has been in much more important and recognizable films than these two.

Ted Marco > Marc Maron > Stand Up / Sam Sylvia (GLOW)

Penny Fleck > Frances Conroy > Ophelia (Catwoman) / Various (American Horror Story)

Detective Burke > Shea Whigham > Cole (Kong: Skull Island) / Roger Dooley (Agent Carter)

Thomas Wayne > Brett Cullen > Congressman (The Dark Knight Rises) / Barton Blaze (Ghost Rider) / Sgt. Tom Eckert (Red Dawn)

Alfred Pennyworth > Douglas Hodge > Rolo Haynes (Black Mirror: Black Museum)

Arkham State Hospital Clerk > Brian Tyree Henry > Jefferson Davis (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)
