The Real Reason The Cast Of Joker Is Giving You Deja Vu

  • Published: 02 October 2019
  • Hope you've got your happy face on, 'cause Joker is here to bring a little maniacal mirth to the gritty, mean streets of Gotham. Joaquin Phoenix is undeniably the star, but he's joined by an impressive supporting cast and yes, you've absolutely seen most of their faces before.

    Her perfectly coiffed hair is on the verge of iconic status in its own right, and her name is undeniably fun to say, but it's Zazie Beetz's seemingly effortless charisma and incisive approach to her characters that's helped set her apart. That combination of attributes undoubtedly helped drive director Todd Phillips to cast the gifted actor as Arthur Fleck's scrappy neighbor and romantic interest Sophie in Joker, though Beetz's track record of holding her own in the company of serious actors didn't hurt.

    That particular skill has been well on display throughout Beetz's still-young career. If you're wondering where you've seen her before, Beetz featured prominently in the "Brewery Brothers" storyline of Joe Swanberg's egregiously underrated Netflix anthology series Easy. She's also played Van, the no-nonsense baby mama to Donald Glover's Earn on the critically adored FX dramedy Atlanta.

    It's most likely, however, that you saw Beetz hamming it up as Domino a.k.a. the luckiest woman alive opposite Ryan Reynolds' foul-mouthed anti-hero in Deadpool 2.

    Beetz is set to reprise that scene-stealing role in the still-developing Deadpool spinoff X-Force, but if you don't want to wait that long, you can currently see her in Steven Soderbergh's Netflix drama High Flying Bird and the creepy new streamer Wounds.

    As Joker spends more than a little bit of time examining the struggles of a life in stand-up comedy, it seems fitting that Marc Maron would feature prominently in the narrative. He has, after all, spent the bulk of his professional life making a name for himself as one of the more insightful comedians around. It's also a safe bet his hard-earned success eventually led him into direct contact with sleazy late-night TV producers like the one he plays in Joker, Ted Marco. Keep watching the video to see the real reason the cast of Joker is giving you deja vu

    Who do you think the best known actor is outside of Joaquin Phoenix and Robert DeNiro in Joker?

      Probably Dante Pereira-Olson. When Thomas and Martha Wayne were shot dead, Dante looked like he literally had just shit himself.

    Brian Tyree Henry was barely in the movie. Just one scene. I'd say it was more of a cameo than a supporting role

                        It will be a very subjective opinion, but believe me, Phoenix nailed this one, he will shoot de Niro in the end of the movie

                        @Cadillac Deville Both. If it is in English, it will have subtitles or it would dub in all Indian languages.

                      Of all the people you mentioned, I'm sad Robert DeNiro was omitted. Of all his notable roles, Taxi Driver is quite possibly his one role that would have really given off a deja vu vibe.

                            Because money.
                            Good actors cost money so most of the time thy use less known actors or ones that haven't worked in a while because it's a risk using unknown actors
