Bale Talks the Joker Off Ledger

Batman Begins star Christian Bale opens up about the new movie and the casting of Heath Ledger as the Joker.
Christian Bale, who plays Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming The Dark Knight had this to say about the casting of Heath Ledger as the Joker: "Heath is very much into what [director] Chris [Nolan] had done with the first one and he's very passionate about the role," he told FilmFocus. "And he's a really good actor so we're going to see something very special from him."

As for the Dark Knight: "I just love that title," Bale told FilmFocus, "You know, nothing's written in stone yet, but I like, very much, that it doesn't have 'Batman' written in the title. This take on Batman of mine and Chris' is very different from any of the others and everything else always had Batman in the title. I think this is kind-of distancing it even further and saying, 'Hey, this is a whole different creature from what has come before.'"
