Top 7 Joker Performances From TV & Movies Ranked

Previous1 of 8

The Joker Harley QuinnThe Joker is one of the most popular villains in fiction. As a result of that, he has been featured in multiple movies, TV shows and video games. Fortunately, he’s a character who can be molded to fit his environment. He’s equally at home in The LEGO Batman Movie getting his feelings hurt as he is pushing Superman to the brink in the Injustice video game franchise.

One question persists through all those adaptations: who plays Joker best?

For all you Suicide Squad fans out there wondering why Jared Leto isn’t on the list, don’t worry I got an answer for you. I didn’t like him! Man oh man, I thought he was terrible honestly. Laughable in the wrong sense of the word. Perhaps some of the cut scenes might have changed my mind, but from what I saw I wasn’t left wanting more.

Do you think I’m wrong? Should Leto or someone else have made the list? Sound off in the comment section and let me know!

But for now, take some laughing gas and hit Next to find out who the best Jokers are!

    There’s no denying that Hamill is just awesome as Joker, but Heath Ledger was on a different level. If you’re speaking solely on performance, Ledger did something that transcends genre and redefined villainy in a way that was so true to the spirit and demented nature of the character, yet totally unique at the same time.

    When I was flipping through, I saw Nicholson at 3 and Ledger at 2 and for a split second I feared you would have Jared Leto at #1. I already had a whole scathing post ready in my head. Totally forgot Mark Hamill who clearly is awesome as the Joker.

    BTW, I know I am in the minority, but I still like Jack Nicholson’s Joker more than Heath Ledger’s.
