If you are looking for an exaggerated man, you could do much worse than Shea Whigham. The actor, who lately seems to be everywhere, in everything, from Kong: Skull Island to Fargo to Waco to First man– He's shooting Todd Phillips once. Joker Movie, and let him assure you, he's fucking excited about it.
"For me, it's the best," says Whigham. Collider in a new interview in the middle of the press campaign for the next Amazon series Homecoming, when asked about the time that is currently happening in the city of Gotham. "I flow back and forth between television and film, and I do not miss it, working with Joaquín [Phoenix] and to see what he is doing. And Todd Phillips has put together this amazing script. It is the history of the origin. People have not seen how the Joker becomes the Joker, and oh, my God, it's amazing. It really is ". Nobody tells Whigham about Tim Burton Ordinance, because he seems to be very excited about the whole thing "nobody has seen the Joker become the Joker".
To be fair, this is a new twist on the origin story, at least when it comes to large screen representations. Whigham gives some additional details (and additional enthusiasm) when asked about his role in the villain-centered period piece:
Bill Camp, from The night of, is one of our great actors. Finally he is getting his due. He and I played with two cops from Gotham P.D., in 1981, when the city was difficult. We are investigating something that just happened, at the beginning of the piece. We're trying to get to the bottom, and it takes us where it takes us. You know, it's weird that I've been on a set where it looks like it crackles. It's pretty amazing. . I want to have an experience I do not call it work. I'm not saying I have a job. I have a concert, a piece, a movie or a show, but it's never a job. . . We are having an experience in Joker.
I'm glad to know you're having an experience. The idea of a couple of cops playing counterpoint to the development of the transformation of Phoenix by Arthur Fleck in the Joker of every day makes sense, if only because someone has to come to the scene of the crimes of Joker to look with the eyes open and say: "Backup call", as there probably will not be a Batman around to do anything about it.
