Greatest Villain Performances by ActorsAlexandr
The Top TenXW
It's one thing to act out a role masterfully, but to immerse yourself into said role so masterfully that you and the character you're portraying become indistinguishable is another thing. Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight was just that, and, simply put, it's why so many considered his portrayal of Joker to be the best villain portrayal in film history.
Heath was an incredible actor but this was by far his most astounding performance. I am amazed by him and I have so much respect for him... His joker was so fascinating, and you never once stopped to think that it was heath ledger, the guy from brokeback mountain, underneath all that makeup. You were too busy being scared out of your pants
Ledger seemed so mental in this movie, the way he he smiles, laughs, and his acting makes you concentrate straight on the movie.
