Why The Dark Knight’s Eric Roberts Was Told To Avoid Heath Ledger

It’s no secret that playing the Joker changed Heath Ledger for good, but his acting style wasn’t a burden on the production. Other “Dark Knight” cast members have positive things to say about the Oscar winner. While speaking with GQ in 2022, Batman actor Christian Bale gushed over Ledger and his rousing performance. “Heath Ledger, oh my God, what a performance. What a pleasure to have gotten to work with him, and just to see him and how much he put himself into the Joker,” he said. 

Bale was taken aback by Ledger’s turn and remembered feeling as if his own performance wasn’t up to par. “And so Batman, actually, he’s very close to being a villain himself. So, let’s never let him become dull by comparison, and unfortunately I was sitting there going, ‘I feel a little bit dull by comparison because Heath is just killing this,'” he explained.

While the Joker has plenty of sinister moments in “The Dark Knight,” Ledger is loved by all his co-stars. Gary Oldman, who plays James Gordon in the Dark Knight trilogy, had similarly pleasant things to say, describing him as a “great guy” in an interview (via TheCelebFactory). “… Hanging out with him between takes on the set … I thought he was a sweet kid,” he said.
