Tommy Wiseau’s Joker audition tape has been edited into The Dark Knight

It actually kinda works

We're all a little bit in love with Tommy Wiseau. The actor, producer, director whose comically bad cult movie The Room has made him famous, is an antidote to stale stardom – a true Hollywood eccentric who doesn't appear to give much of a shit about what anyone thinks. 

In James Franco's recent movie The Disaster Artist, which chronicles the making of The Room, Wiseau is shown being told he would make a much better villain than leading man. It seems, many years later, that he's taken those words to heart – he's been campaigning to be picked as the next Joker in Batman (the most recent iteration of whom was played by Jared Leto in a widely panned performance in Suicide Squad).

After recording an audition tape with Nerdist, some editing whiz has decided to superimpose Wiseau's audition onto scenes from The Dark Knight. It's actually pretty good. Watch below:
