Heath Ledger’s Joker Diary Surfaces



In a new German documentary about the life of late actor Heath Ledger, we are getting a new glimpse into his preparation for the role of his life – as the Joker in Batman: The Dark Knight.

In this documentary, Heath’s father Kim shows the filming crew some of the pages of his diary that Heath was keeping while preparing for the role. According to his father, Heath would seclude himself in his apartment or a hotel room for just about every role he was working on, but the preparation for the Joker took this to a whole other level.

Some of the things that we see in this diary are images of playing cards, scenes from various Batman comics that feature the Joker, stills from A Clockwork Orange and even photos of hyenas. Ledger died in 2008 and won an Oscar for his role as the Joker after his death.
