Is Tom Waits the Joker?

by Tag Brum on July 31, 2012

Newsarama posted this video of an interview of Tom Waits where he acts and talks like, well, Tom Waits, but you’ll notice that it’s awfully familiar, especially if you’ve seen The Dark Knight. I know, it’s a bit late, but what the hell.

A video from a 1979 Australian talk show has been making the viral rounds of late. The YouTube clip features then 29 year-old musician/sometimes actor Tom Waits uncannily serving as inspiration to late Australian actor Heath Ledger’s portrayal of The Joker 30 years later in 2008’s The Dark Knight.
