Mark Hamill is an intergalactic treasure.

I bet he would feel really bad about his sarcasm if it turned out the reports of his death were true.

I would pay big bucks to see "Corvette Summer II" (with the original cast, of course).

Big Bucks.

He was the voice of Joker in all animated Batman stories and video games for something like 2 decades and was absolutely amazing at it. He has also done just a mountain of voice work besides that.

Hamill's Joker is Best Joker, IMHO.  DCAU for the win.

/ Heath Ledger's version comes really close, but it's definitely a different take on the character.

Troy Baker does a damn fine job, but he's basically just doing a spot-on impression of Hamill's performance.  Still, apparently the voice does some pretty unpleasant things to Hamill's throat these days, so Hamill's likely done with the role unless they really offer him a shiatload of money.  After Arkham City, he pretty much only kept the door open for Killing Joke, and now that's done, we're unlikely to see another reprisal.

Mark Hamill.


I love that clip, because it really does sum up why Hamill's version did it best.  He, together with Timm and Dini, grasped what is, to me, the central part of Joker's character:  He manages to be funny and horrifying at the same time.  Every other portrayal hewed too close to one side or the other.  Romero was funny, but never scary or intimidating, and Ledger was scary, but had such a grim, dour portrayal that "why so serious" could almost be read as a commentary on his performance.  Hamill's Joker was hilarious, he was scary, and vitally, he was extremely mercurial.  You never knew which side of him was going to be on top, and it could completely change from moment to moment with no warning.  I am, of course, biased, because I grew up with this version, but to me, it's the ultimate ideal of what someone like Joker needs in order to work.

He was two different versions of the Trickster in The Flash. He used his Joker voice for it, chewed all the scenery, and was clearly enjoying himself.

Not to mention Skips on the Regular show, Fire Lord Ozai on The Last Airbender, tons of others. He's probably in every current cartoon, somewhere.

That's how I felt too.  He was a good villain, but not a great Joker.  He would have been a pretty decent Anarky, though it would take some script changes, but there was just something missing.

I'll say this, I liked the character, and I thought it was well acted. However, I didn't think it was a good characterization of the Joker. I'm not sure who he would have been in Bat's rogues gallery, but it wasn't really the Joker.

He did the voice for his cameo on the new MST3K, but not the laugh.

Once Disney got him to quit smoking and into-shape for Star Wars he's suddenly found it much easier to do the voice again. That said, none of them are getting any younger. Hell, Conroy doesn't even sound remotely like he did back when he started. It still fits the DCAU's ongoing timeline and ever more humorless/miserable Bruce that showed up in Beyond, but he really shouldn't be playing a wealthy young man-about-town-aged Batman anymore.

Conroy worked the shiat out of the Batman voice in the Arkham games, but yeah, I don't know how well he can still pull off his softer, more urbane Bruce Wayne voice.  The Beyond Bruce worked because he was just doing the gravelly Batman voice full-time at that point.
