Everyone likes Heath Ledger

I think its awesome the praise being heaped upon Heath Ledger for his portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight. But it makes me even happier to see that its not just fans freaking out. MTV News (again, the bastion of journalism that it is) has some comments from some pretty big heavy-hitters in the world of comics and filmmaking. Guillermo del Toro says "every time I see more of Heath Ledger's Joker, I like it more. That's a good sign because if something is going the wrong wa on they, the more you see about it, the less you ingratiate yourself with it." Paul Dini, one of the writers for the critically acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series said that with the Joker's "attitude is mordant and sardonic as opposed to manic. No goofy gags or puns for him. This Joker doesn't split sides ... he splits skulls." And what does Jeph Loeb have to say? "I was never a big Nicholson fan. Ledger however feels just about right. I eagerly anticipate more!" Its been said before, but I can say it again. This movie (and the role of Joker) are in very capable hands. Big guns rave about Ledger
