With the upcoming Suicide Squad movie in 2016, it has been announced that Jared Leto would play the Joker. I personally am not the biggest fan of this, but he could surprise us like Heath Ledger did in The Dark Knight. But, never less, I have chosen 10 people who I think could pull off the Prince of Crime better than Jared Leto.

Adrien Brody

An actor known for his roles in The Pianist and The Grand Budapest Hotel. Brody really hasn't had his breakout role yet. He would be great at pulling off a disturbed character like the Joker.

Willem Dafoe

Dafoe may be a little of an older choice for the role, but that is because he would be excellent. He showed us he could play a good villain in Spiderman and could do it again.

Joaquin Phoenix

Known for playing very dramatic and disturbing roles, Phoenix did an excellent job in Walk The Line. He is a very skilled actor.

Jake Gyllenhaal

Maybe my favorite actor on this list. Gyllenhaal played a very disturbed actor in Nightcrawler. He would definitely do just as good of job as Leto.

Matthew McConaughey

Matthew has recently exploded in the past few years. He also starred alongside Leto in The Dallas Buyers Club.

Daniel Day Lewis

Another older actor, Lewis looks a lot like an older version of the Joker. He is a very critically acclaimed actor and could make another good performance.

Tom Hiddleston

Probably best known for his role as Loki in the MCU. He is also a personal favorite. He is very charming and would make an excellent Prince of Crime.

Christopher Waltz

This Austrian born actor is probably best known for his roles in Django Unchained and Inglorious Basterds. He is very clean cut and has the look to pull it off.

Bradley Cooper

One of the most popular actors on this list, this would definitely be a different role for him. He did good in American Sniper, in which he was nominated an Oscar.

Johnny Depp

Another very popular actor, Depp has practically played in every type of movie. And he can do it. End of story.
