Top 30 Favorite Movie Characters #12

#12: The Joker

"Some men just want to watch the world burn." A lot of actors have portrayed the Joker over the years, but for my money, Heath Ledger's interpretation is the best. A reinvention of the character from the ground up, Ledger brings an unhinged chaotic edge to his performance. As he licks his lips with homicidal glee, he's less of a goofy clown, and more of a psychotic gangster. His "interrogation" scene with Batman is a highlight.
