Tommy Wiseau is everywhere these days thanks to James Franco's The Disaster Artist and now, after a Joker audition tape for DC Films' upcoming Martin Scorsese-produced Joker origin story movie, a fan-made clip firmly places Wiseau into Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight. Tommy Wiseau has previously offered up his services for the Star Wars franchise when The Last Jedi was out in theaters, but his Joker campaign seems to have gotten the most traction. Maybe a role as the Clown Prince of Crime is in the cards for Wiseau in some kind of project.
Earlier this week, a pretty crazy "audition tape" surfaced online with Tommy Wiseau dressed as the Heath Ledger version of the Joker in The Dark Knight. The video is exactly what you picture, but it has a certain charm to it and it actually seems like Wiseau might be more than a little crazy deep down inside. That being said, a fan decided to splice that audition tape into clips from The Dark Knight and the results are pretty funny, if a little choppy.
The first clip that Tommy Wiseau is magically put into is the end of the opening bank robbing scene where the Joker is asked what he believes in. Wiseau's face shows up from underneath the clown mask to wrestle around the words, "what doesn't kill you make(s) you stranger." The line seems like a real challenge for the star of The Room, which is part of the charm. The best part has to be his laugh as he dashes away. Next up, he proposes a plan to "kill the Batmen," which is strange, because there's only one Batman in the movie.
Where Tommy Wiseau really seems to shine as the Joker in The Dark Knight is while reciting the iconic "why so serious?" line while getting ready to carve a smile. This may not be a compliment, but Wiseau seems like a perfect unhinged serial killer at this point in the fan-made video. This part of the short clip is actually quite frightening, so you've been warned. It just may give you nightmares of what Tommy Wiseau is capable of as the Clown Prince of Crime.
At this point in the game, there's no telling where Tommy Wiseau might offer up his talents via Twitter. The star of The Room has a habit of hitting up major Hollywood stars and directors to try and obtain his roles. Unorthodox, yes, but then we wouldn't have a fan-made version of Wiseau as the Joker in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight. For now, Wiseau and long-time partner Greg Sestero are preparing to launch their next movie, entitled Best F(r)iends. The movie features Wiseau as a creepy mortician and Sestero as a drifter, which may be the breakout role that Wiseau has been born to play.
