Todd Philips' JOKER Movie Adds THE HANGOVER Actor Bryan Callen As "An Aging Dancer/Stripper"
Just in case Todd Philips' Joker movie didn't sound bizarre enough already, the latest bit of casting news has revealed that actor/comedian Bryan Callen has joined the production as an aging stripper...
Here’s what the actor/comedian had to say during the latest episode of his The Fighter & The Kid Podcast:
“I’m doing the Joker. I was offered a part. That’ll be fun, but i think it’s only a couple days. Play an aging dancer, stripper. I don’t want to go into the details. I can’t go into the details, but just know it’s gonna be good. And I hope my psoriasis is flaring cause that’ll be very funny. I’ll be in a Speed-O, I can’t wait. I have some ideas for it.”
Well, that certainly sounds... interesting!
Philips' take on The Clown Prince of Crime remains shrouded in mystery, but we do learn a little more about it with every new casting announcement. How Callen's character fits into the plot is anyone's guess, however.
Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, and he'll be joined by Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, and Frances Conroy. The film is expected to commence production this September.
