Best Replacements for Heath Ledger's Joker

The Top Ten

1 Leonardo DiCaprio Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio is an American actor and film producer. DiCaprio began his career by appearing in television commercials in the late 1980s.

I think Leo would do the job Perfectly!

2 Christian Bale Christian Charles Philip Bale is an English actor. He has starred in both blockbuster films and smaller projects from independent producers and art houses.

Christian Bales' approach to American Psycho hardly leaves any shred of doubt that he is Patrick Bateman. A man who can play an infinite number of roles and easily make you forget his real identity, Christian would be the best pick for a new Joker.

He would put a lot of effort to get his character tip top ready to go and another reason is that he saw our heath ledger did it so he could learn something from heaths performance and try improving it(if there's was something to improve) my second choice would be jim carrey because of his smile.

You guys know he played Batman in "The Dark Knight", right?

3 Johnny Depp John Christopher "Johnny" Depp II is an American actor, producer, and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor. His role in a movie is often rather big. His character is often on the "loopy side" and his character being in a darker state of mind, etc.

I think it's kind of a given that no one can truly "replace" Heath Ledger's Joker. He was just way too phenomenal in the role that no one can really recreate it. But if anyone were to come damn close, I think it would be either Depp or Dafoe. - Mr_Awesome

It would be so great if he played the joker! Maybe he wouldn't be the total best for the role because he always seems to be kind and I can't think of him as totally evil, but he'd most likely be in the #3 of all Jokers ever!

Johnny drop is a great actor, and playing the joker, because, it's just him! - moonwolf

He wouldn't fit the role perfectly, but he's the best choice on the list. - Alpha101

4 Mark Hamill Mark Richard Hamill is an American actor and voice actor. He is best known for his portrayal of Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy – Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi and his portrayal of the Joker in Batman: the Animated Series.

The most iconic voice of Joker of all time! He should be first!
