Everyone was doubtful of the late Heath Ledger but they all lost it when they saw him on the big screen, giving them the chills with the laugh that makes The Joker, The Joker. As for us, we're just thrilled to see one of our favorite characters ever all tatted up on the big screen.

"There was definitely a period of… detachment,” the 43-year-old actor tells Empire on his thrilling new role as the famous man with the smile. "I took a pretty deep dive. But this was a unique opportunity and I couldn't imagine doing it another way. It was fun, playing those psychological games.”

He describes the process of immersing himself deep into the role as “painful, like giving birth out of my prick-hole.”
