Have you heard this one? It'll KILL you, Batman! A joke a day, keeps the gloom away!




In an interview about his role, Cesar said "Why Dozier wanted me I'll never know because I asked his wife, Ann Rutherford, Why did Bill think of me for this part? She said I don't know. He said he saw you in something, and he said, He's the one I want to play the Joker. I haven't the slightest idea what it was that he saw me in, because I had never done anything like it before."

Hi-ho couch potatoes. I'm interrupting the Toilet Bowl to bring you my very special New Year's resolution: ahem, starting tonight at midnight, I, your loving uncle Joker, do solemnly vow not to kill anyone for a whole year. Which means I'm going to have to work extra fast to bump off a few more of you today.

See, this is how crazy Batman's made Gotham! If you want order in Gotham, Batman must take off his mask and turn himself in. Oh, and every day he doesn't, people will die, starting tonight. I'm a man of my word.

"This city deserves a better class of criminal. And I'm gonna give it to them!" - Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight)

After being introduced over 70yrs ago, The Joker character has been the end all villain to The Batman. While the character itself has gone through changes over the years from the more comical to homicidal maniac one thing has remained constant, and that is to create chaos in Gotham City. So here's the evolutionary process that the Joker has gone through over the years in Hollywood from Movies to TV shows, live action and animated.

Mark Hamill was the best voice for The Joker, Ledger was the best in person

But Nicholson and Romero also made incredible jobs! I can't say about the ones who aren't in person because I haven't really watched them.

some of these jokers are real jokes.. not funny/joker like at all, no dissrespect but theres only a few I;d call MISTAH J.

Heath Ledger the best!²
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at Jul 6 19:13
Yeah Ledger was godlike, but Nicholson will always be my favourite.

One of the best Evolution of... list here. Great job!

AWESOME idea!
Posted: 6 years ago at Oct 21 3:50
Jack is my favourite
Posted: 6 years ago at Oct 21 20:51
Jack Nicholson, Mark Hamill, and Ledger are the best versions of joker.
Posted: 6 years ago at Oct 22 3:54
'ever danced with the devil by the pale moonlight?'

Cesar is great, but Jack is the best

Brent Spiner? OMG that's Awesome

Ledger was godlike :D

Love this list. :)

"Mark Hamill was the best voice for The Joker, Ledger was the best in person." Agreed, 100%!
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Mar 10 2:00
Heath Ledger gave an incredible performance! I love Romero and Nicholson aswell.
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Mar 27 17:03
Yes, Heath was good, but I always thought his Joker was too dirty and stray dog-like. Nicholson and Romero were the other extremes. They were too comical.

Mark Hamill is, IMO, THE Joker.
Posted: 5 years, 5 months ago at May 7 20:03
Chris R. Notarile is a GREAT Joker! Check out Mr. J!
Posted: 5 years, 5 months ago at May 25 4:17
My favorite is still Hamill.
Posted: 5 years ago at Oct 9 1:05
Heath ledger team!
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Apr 6 1:49
I would love to see them bring Joker to the live screen again - just to see who they get and how they do it. I seem to be in the minority but I'm still waiting for them to do the character properly. Nicholson's was funny and Ledger's was twisted-creepy but (imo) they still haven't quite gotten it right.

Nice list!
