The Joker Actor Chart by JokerAgentChaos The Joker Actor Chart by JokerAgentChaos
***AS OF JULY 2011***

I've wanted to do this for a while now. This is just a chart displaying the actors who have played The Joker. Voice actors are at the bottom and live action actors are at the top.

It shows the name of each actor along with the year they were born (and in Heath's case, died.) Isn't it sad that Heath is the only one who is dead out of all of these? :cries:

Cesar Romero isn't on here, I'm afraid. :( He is the only other Joker actor who has died.

It also shows their latest age. (Heath was 28 when he died, but if he was still alive he'd be 32.)

I looked for good pictures to use, and I think I found some pretty good ones. John DiMaggio is the newest addition to this legacy; he played The Joker in DC'S 2010 animated movie Batman: Under The Red Hood. I think he did an amazing job! :clap: Three cheers for John! :eager: I hope to hear more of his Joker voice!

Mark Hamill has a little collage of Jokers that he's voiced. Batman: Arkham Asylum video game, Batman: The animated series, Batman the new animated series (seasons 3 + 4 when Joker's design changed), and Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker.

Mark Hamill, Heath Ledger and Troy Baker! Absolutely love them. Waiting for Jared Leto to become one of my favorites. <3

this is a neat chart,i like everyone's portrayal but my absolute favorite is ledger, the voice and twitchy way he moves are bad-ass.
but off topic question i got is: why do some portrayals of the joker make it look like he has a balding or receding hairline,i always wondered that?

There's never been a badly done portrayal of The Joker, has there? Every actor put their own little spin on Joker and brought out something about his personality and mentality. Naturally, we have our favorites, but I don't think any of us don't like any version of Joker that we've seen. They've just always done him so well, if in different ways. He's the one villain we all love (relatively speaking, of course.)

Mark Hamill is king! he was the only one who made it convincing that The Joker absolutely enjoyed human torture and destruction.

Freaking Mark Hamill is honestly the best for voicing the Joker. 
Like Joker in my head, talks like Mark. :)

All are great in my honest opinion but since Arkham City was Mark Hamill last time doing the joker's voice John Dimaggio is a great stand in.

NorthBridge1 Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2013
I love all these Jokers and they are all brilliant in their own unique ways.

Jack Nicholson's Joker was more of the silver age Joker being a little silly laughing more then usual and killing in some inventive ways (Joy buzzer scene was epic).

Heath Ledger's Joker, in my opinion, is the greatest live action Joker he really nailed the dark side of the Joker while keeping a few of the Joker's silly traits but still was almost scary. And also is the most realistic and most likely version of Joker that could exist in the real world.

Kevin Michael Richard's Joker is a very different take on the character. You can clearly see the two sides of the Joker in Kevin's voice work. Being all goofy with his high voice but then easily bringing it down to become the more menacing and threatening Joker. Also nice to see a Joker that can give Batman a challenge physically for a change.

Mark Hamill's Joker is the one, including myself, that everyone loves and compares other Jokers to. Mark captured the perfect combination of the goofy clown with the homicidal killer below the surface. This is definatly shown in the Arkham games.

Finally John Dimaggio's Joker is one i very much enjoyed showing a dark Joker with a dry sense of humor, enjoying things no one else would giving us the Joker we wouldn't laugh along side with like Hamill's. It defiantly showed the darker side of the Clown.

I would like to see more of John's Joker now that Hamill's called it a day on playing the Joker. I think their all great Jokers and won't be forgotten any time soon.

Completely agree with you! ^_^ Thank you for such a wonderful and thoroughly though-out comment! I also really hope to see more of John Dimaggio's Joker. Gonna miss Hamill a lot.
NorthBridge1 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013
he defiantly will be missed but thankfully we have many good Joker to replace him with. He will be missed. And thanks for liking my comment :)

why are you missing Caesar Romero
joker99xdraven Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013
I was thinking the same thing
ValkCaine Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2013
mark hamill is my fav voice for joker
Mindkiller1989 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013
Random thought: Despite Heath Ledger's talent in his role as the Joker in "The Dark Knight," what if Mark Hamill was the Joker in that movie instead? He's just my personal favorite out of the bunch.
NanaLeeII Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013
There was always debates on which Joker is better and for me I will defend so matter what; Heath Ledger is the best live action Joker and Mark Hamill is the best voice for Joker. Heath get him a good, visual persona of Joker and he would actually press his tongue to his cheek like Joker. Also, I don't know why, but I think the reason why the Trilogy stared Bane instead of Joker because Heath let such a big impression that it just wouldn't be right if Joker was someone else.
And as for Mark Hamill, well he's just awesome. I mean I grew up watching the Animated series and he is honestly my favorites.
Either why, each of their (all of them) performances were all really amazing.
Yubitsume Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I've always had a liking for Kevin's especially, probably because he can pitch his voice really high and sound devilishly crazy, but then he can bring it back down and become something really menacing.

Then I gotta admit, I was blown away by John's performance too. He was able to capture Joker's image, but also, he gave the character a dryness in his humor that I think we've yet to seen with any of the other VAs at that time.

I think that they're all amazing, really. :D

Mark Hamill has the perfect Joker voice.
channah23 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
Well, for live-action, the best Joker was Heath Ledger [ RIP]
But, I think Mark Hammil's Joker voice is perfect for the Joker! :)
