The cast of the upcoming movie includes:
Joaquin Phoenix will be playing the character of Joker. He said that he accepted this role because he was working with Todd Phillips. He said, “He seems to have a very impressive understanding of this world and what he is trying to say.”
“And so there’s something very appealing about that & working with him on this particular project.
It feels unique, it is its own world in some ways, and maybe, mostly, it scares the f––ing s––t out of me or something. It might as well be the thing that scares you the most.”
According to a statement from The Hollywood Reporter, Robert De Niro is in the movie as “a talk show host who is somehow instrumental in the Joker’s origin.”
Marc Maron is in the movie as “an agent on Robert De Niro’s talk show who plays a part in booking Phoenix’s character, and eventually causing him to go mad and become the Clown Prince of Crime.” Zazie Beetz as “a single mother who catches the interest of the man who will become the clown prince of crime.” (from The Hollywood Reporter).
