Character Study: The Joker
When the movie The Dark Knight opens Thursday at midnight, thousands of people will be haunted by the late Heath Ledger's portrayal of The Joker.
Before he died, Ledger told reporters that it took a ton of energy to play the role, but that it was the most fun he ever had.
"It was one of those moments where I was asked if I'd be interested in playing The Joker, and I knew five seconds later exactly how to play it," he said.
