Lakeith Stanfield Really Wants To Play Joker; Has His Dream Directors Lined Up
The Photograph star Lakeith Stanfield spoke to Collider to reiterate how much he would like to play the Clown Prince of Crime even though Joaquin Phoenix occupies the role at the moment.
“What I’d bring to it would have a lot to do with who I collaborate with, and how the story’s written and what world we exist in, and then I’ll go do my lil magic … Wouldn’t it be crazy if me and the Safdies did something like that?”
He was also on Jimmy Kimmel expressing that he will play the Joker at some point, whether a studio chooses to hire him or not. “Wait ’till they see me do it”
What do you think? If Phoenix does not reprise the role, would you be interested in seeing Stanfield do it?
