Nerdist has released a new video featuring Tommy Wiseau as the Joker in a recreation of one of the most memorable scenes in The Dark Knight.
Earlier this year, The Room director Tommy Wiseau released a Joker audition tape through the Nerdist as part of a campaign to play the Clown Prince of Crime. Now, Wiseau has returned as Heath Ledger’s version of iconic Batman villain in a recreation of the interrogation scene featured in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. Directed by Andrew Bowser, the video features Tommy Wiseau delivering a sincere performance alongside his co-star and friend Greg Sestero in the role of Batman.

Of course, Warner Bros. and DC have already begun production on a new Joker film with Joaquin Phoenix in the titular role.
“Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.
Joker will be released in theaters on October 4, 2019.
