Why so serious, Tommy?

Between touring The Room and promoting James Franco's making-of-The-Room movie, The Disaster Artist, Tommy Wiseau probably hasn't had much time to toss the ol' football around. Given how bad of an actor the guy really is, it was obviously a performance that we'd never get a chance to see, and while I would never want to see Wiseau actually take on the serious role, I would LOVE to see a little bit of what we COULD expect should Wiseau actually take it on.

Now, Nerdist has gotten involved with Wiseau to present his equally hilarious and terrifying audition video for the role of The Joker, channelling Heath Ledger's makeup-smeared look in "The Dark Knight" as he quotes some of the character's greatest lines.

If the Irish win, they will host either 8th seeded South Dakota St or 9th seeded Villanova in Sunday's 2nd round. The Ducks potentially could stay out west and play in Spokane, where Graves spent many years as Gonzaga's coach.

Greg Sestero, Wiseau's co-star on "The Room" and the author of "The Disaster Artist", even makes a cameo in the video as The Dark Knight himself, doing his best gravely, baritone reading of "I'm Batman".

The Californian band's new clip for "Scary Love" sees Wiseau embroiled in a shoot-out in a late-night diner with a evil cyborg waitress.

Last month, Wiseau threw his hat in the ring after reports surfaced that Phillips was in talks with Joaquin Phoenix for the title role.

Shortly after this, Shams Charania of The Vertical reported the tendon was torn, and that Smart will be seeking a second opinion. The Celtics also lost backup center Daniel Theis to season-ending surgery to fix a torn meniscus.

Of course, every Joker needs a Batman, and Wiseau turned to an old friend for the audition.

We were also blown away by how wonderful this audition was, which is why we're formally endorsing Tommy Wiseau as the next Joker.
