    Kim, I heard that Jack Nicholson said that anyone who played "The Joker," because he was SOOOO evil, would have bad karma for a long time after. If I were to act, I don't think I'd take on an evil character. It seems to me that that's a way to call evil into your life; it's an intuitive feeling that I get about this, yet I'm not superstitious in the accepted sense of the word.

    Nor would I want my offspring named after people who had tangled and not necessarily pretty, affairs! (I get I'm just old fashioned, lol....)

    I can understand that Lynda ...
    I went to see the Dark Knight last night...and Heath Ledger's character is certainly evil... however I think he played the part with a lot of humour and I suppose we have to keep in mind that these films are fantasy... I don't think it's a role for everyone though...
    I've read about the three way relationship that Sunday Reed had and it was quite scandalous.... you're right ..names can bear a legacy and in this case one that could be to the child's detriment...

    I have not yet seen the Dark Night but I have heard nothing but tremendous results about the film as well as the acting done by each of the main characters, so therefore, I am anticipating watching this film very soon. Heath Ledger's death was a tragedy indeed. The question is, is if the film had anything to do with his death...?..or, was it accidental? hopefully the truth will be revealed.
