The Tommy Wiseau as Joker fan-casting continues to rule the Internet, this time in the form of a teaser trailer starring the infamous director as the Clown Prince of Crime.
Uploaded by The Dangerous Brew, the fake trailer splices scenes from The Dark Knight and Wiseau’s cult hit The Room to paint a new sinister version of Batman’s deadliest foe. Heath Ledger is noticeably absent, with narration also coming from The Room.

Wiseau himself has fueled much of the campaign to land the coveted role in the upcoming Todd Phillips Joker project, though he has some stiff competition from the likes of Joaquin Phoenix and other acclaimed actors. He shared some fan art on his Twitter account yesterday decked out in Joker makeup and his own signature sunglasses, making it very clear in his tweet that he “wants to be THE JOKER!”
