Following rumors that Josh Lucas is up for the role of Harvey Dent in the next Batman film, a sequel to Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, Adrien Brody has thrown his hat into the ring for the role of The Joker. As reported on Moviehole
Brody tells USA Today that he loved Batman Begins and hopes to be considered for the role of the jovial assassin in the next chapter.
"I would love to play The Joker. I think he would be deformed and creepier."
Brody later elaborated that his joker would be "deformed and creepier" not because of his interpretation of the psychopathic character, but because he's actually deformed and creepy.
