  • The filmmaker's 'The Room' co-star Greg Sestero reads for Batman

After achieving mainstream fame thanks to James Franco's The Disaster Artist and getting to walk onstage during the Golden Globes, Wiseau teamed with Nerdist to put together an audition tape to play the Clown Prince of Crime.

Made up to resemble the late Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker from Christopher Nolan's 2008 film The Dark Knight, Wiseau delivers - er, yells - lines from previous Batman films.

Not too long ago, The Room actor/director Tommy Wiseau expressed his interest in taking on one of the most iconic roles in comic book history: The Joker.

May God bless the folks over at Nerdist, because they were able to work with Tommy Wiseau to create a legendary audition tape. I guess the word is impersonate...? the actors who have played previous incarnations of the character.

Wiseau will next be seen alongside Sestero in the film "Best F (r) iends", and even released a trailer for another film called "Scary Love".

You Were Never Really Here star Joaquin Phoenix is the favourite to land the role for the upcoming Joker prequel film, which will be directed by The Hangover's Todd Phillips.

We were also blown away by how fantastic this audition was, which is why we're formally endorsing Tommy Wiseau as the next Joker. Of course, The Joker can only be as great as his Batman, which is why we needed someone who can drum up some great onscreen chemistry with Tommy.
