Alec Baldwin Cast in ‘Joker’ Movie
The new Joker movie adds another big name actor. The Hollywood Reporter says that the Alec Baldwin is officially joining the cast of the standalone DC movie as Thomas Wayne, the father of Bruce Wayne.
The rumor is that the character will be played more as a Donald Trump-esque businessman rather than a caring doctor that we’ve seen in the past.
Baldwin joins an already stellar cast that includes Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker and Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz and Marc Maron in yet to be disclosed roles in the film.
The casting of Baldwin is intriguing but the rumor of Thomas Wayne being a cheesy businessman has me worried. Alec Baldwin has played such nuanced characters in the past, I’d hate to see him do a version of his Donald Trump impression in a DC movie. However, this is just the first report so hopefully is character will turn out to be more interesting.
What are your thoughts? Are you excited to see Baldwin in the movie?
