Tommy Wiseau Wants to Play the Joker in Scorsese Produced DC Movie

Tommy Wiseau thinks that he would be a better Joker than Joaquin Phoenix and has reached out to director Todd Phillips about the role. Leonardo DiCaprio was rumored to play the Clown Prince of Crime in the new Joker Origin Movie, being produced by Martin Scorsese, after it was revealed that he met with Phillips 4 times to talk about the role. But new report suggests that Joaquin Phoenix is now the frontrunner for the new Joker movie. But would The Room‘s Tommy Wiseau be a better choice than Phoenix and DiCaprio?

Tommy Wiseau thinks he’s the right actor to portray the Joker in Martin Scorsese and Todd Phillips’ new origin story and he might be right. Late last week, Wiseau hit up Phillips on social media when it was announced that Joaquin Phoenix is the frontrunner to play the character. Phoenix is an Academy Award nominated actor and excitement began to spread amongst DC fans with the idea of the actor taking on the role. Fan art was promptly drawn up, which stoked the fire even more. However, Tommy Wiseau thinks he can do a better job.

The Room is considered to be the Citizen Kane of horrible movies, but Tommy Wiseau’s role is perfectly unhinged and he could make a fine Joker in the new origin movie. The DCEU is looking to shake things up with a new DC Films banner that will make the standalone movie and Wiseau could be just the man to go in and turn things around after the failure of Justice League. Now all we need is BossLogic to whip up some artwork really quick to see what Tommy Wiseau would look like as the Joker.

All kidding aside, Tommy Wiseau will definitely not be playing the Joker in Todd Phillips’ upcoming origin movie. But, it would be equally interesting to see Wiseau tackle the movie on his own, like he did with The Room. Maybe that’s the direction that the actor should take since it could be a few years before we end up seeing this new Joker origin movie put out by Warner Bros. Tommy Wiseau could make his own version, with his own money, and probably even get a bunch of A-list cameos, thanks to James Franco’s The Disaster Artist.

Although Tommy Wiseau won’t get to play the Joker in the Todd Phillips’ upcoming movie, he may end up getting a cameo of some sort. Maybe he can play a henchman or a football player in a role without dialogue. For now, Joaquin Phoenix is the frontrunner to play the Joker in an origin story that will reportedly take place in the 1980s and be the first movie to be released under the new DC Films banner. Let’s hope that Tommy Wiseau is included in some way when production starts. You can check out the tweet that started it all below, courtesy of Tommy Wiseau’s Twitter account.

QUEEN OF SOUL ARETHA FRANKLIN DEAD AT 76

QUEEN OF SOUL ARETHA FRANKLIN DEAD AT 76

 
Aretha Franklin, known for having one of the greatest voices in music history, and for hits like “Respect,” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” … died Thursday after a long battle with advanced pancreatic cancer.

Aretha passed away in her Detroit home where she was under hospice care. She’d been in failing health for many months and she was down to 86 pounds. One source told us he was informed more than a week ago that Aretha could go at any time.

She was surrounded by friends and family when she passed. Her family released a statement, saying, “In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family.”

She had appeared incredibly frail in recent years, and rarely performed live. Her most recent appearance was last November for Elton John’s AMFAR event.

Aretha’s career is just incredible. Born in Memphis in 1942, her family eventually relocated to Detroit where she began singing in her father’s church. She was such a powerhouse gospel singer, she landed a Columbia record deal in the early ’60s.

Her string of chart-topping hits began with her Atlantic Records deal in 1967.

Aretha’s achievements in the late ’60s were remarkable for any artist, but especially so for a black woman in the midst of the Civil Rights movement. She held the record for the most entries on the Hot 100 list of any female artist for nearly 40 years, only to be dethroned in 2017 by Nicki Minaj.

She won 18 Grammys and was the first woman ever inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

Aretha delivered a powerful rendition of “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” — while wearing that unforgettable hat — at Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration.

Throughout her career, Aretha was known for delivering incredible one-off live performances, including at the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors show where she sang ‘Natural Woman’ in honor of the song’s co-writer, Carole King.

The Queen of Soul was 76. She is survived by her 4 sons.

RIP
