'It is a physically and mentally draining role (his Joker is a “psychopathic, mass-murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy”......“Last week I probably slept an average of two hours a night,” he said. “I couldn’t stop thinking. My body was exhausted, and my mind was still going.”

Jak Nicholson was upset that he wasn't asked to be a consultant on the film (not sure why he thought they'd want him)...
"They never asked me about a sequel with the Joker. I know how to do that. To be candid, I'm furious."
He was given his first lead role in A Knight's Tale, a curious medieval romp with a rock 'n' roll soundtrack. It was a hit and a star was born. A particular kind of star - the romantic hunk. And Ledger was already experiencing misgivings.
"I didn't have the confidence to say, 'Stop! I don't want to do this any more!'," he admitted. Thisislondon
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a fantastical morality tale, set in the present day. It tells the story of Dr Parnassus and his extraordinary 'Imaginarium', a travelling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Blessed with the extraordinary gift of guiding the imaginations of others, Dr Parnassus is cursed with a dark secret. Long ago he made a bet with the devil, Mr Nick, in which he won immortality. Many centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on condition that when his first-born reached its 16th birthday he or she would become the property of Mr Nick. Valentina is now rapidly approaching this 'coming of age' milestone and Dr Parnassus is desperate to protect her from her impending fate. Mr Nick arrives to collect but, always keen to make a bet, renegotiates the wager. Now the winner of Valentina will be determined by whoever seduces the first five souls

Good point Dr. Love.
Anyone who is a good actor doesnt actually "act" but becomes something for real, makes something real. Some are so "good" at acting that it kills them.
Ledger: "Well ... that's uh ... I mean look, we're acting ... I mean, when you're playing a mass murderer are you really murdering people? Know what I mean? You're acting. wcbstv
