Did Tom Waits Inspire Heath Ledger's Joker?

Heath Ledger’s portrayal of The Joker in “The Dark Knight” is one of the most chillingly original performances on screen — but perhaps the late actor was influenced by other characters in pop culture? Like, say, gravely voiced singer-songwriter Tom Waits? Watch this 1979 interview with Waits and try and tell me the vocal inflections and mannerisms aren’t uncannily similar. [NME]

The cards are stacked undeniably in Marion Cotillard’s favor, but she always manages to surprise me with her impeccable sartorial choices. It’s incredible how one woman can go so long without wearing anything boring or even erring on the questionable side: she kills it, and she’s so believably dynamic that it’s never like, “oh, it’s just Marion in a fantastic dress again.” It’s jaw-dropping every time like it’s the first time. She often chooses Dior for events, given that she’s one of the faces of the brand (like a girl really needs a reason to wear Dior), and in my opinion she wears it better than anyone. This frock, a delicate combination of a fitted, ’50s-inspired bodice and a frothy ruffled skirt, is beautifully swan-like (in no way reminiscent of Björk’s O.G. swan dress), but it’s the fierce shoes that really (quite literally) hammer it in. Check those bitches out. They’re an unlikely pairing for such a ladylike little dress, and that’s what makes the whole look thoroughly awesome.

Apparently, when most of us take off for the holidays to hang out with our families, the internet’s cat population takes over. Witness this trailer for the new film “The Dark Knight: Rises” — the latest in the Batman series — as performed by cats. Ironically, incredibly, the role of Catwoman (as played in the actual movie by Anne Hathaway) is played by a dog. [Comic Book Movie]

Michelle Williams has been struggling to remain strong for daughter Matilda after Heath Ledger’s death in January.
