Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero Star in THE DARK KNIGHT Interrogation Scene

They said we were mad. They said it was a crazy idea. They said we could NOOOT be serious. What was it that caused everyone to lose their minds? Earlier this year we helped Tommy Wiseau record a very real audition tape to play The Joker, with an assist from his friend and The Room co-star Greg Sestero as the Caped Crusader. And to top even that, we’ve now had the two of them recreate the iconic interrogation scene between Batman and the Joker from The Dark Knight. And yes, it is totally insane, but in the best way.

We know Warner Bros. will never remake The Dark Knight, but you know you’d watch that movie with these two. Maybe it’s because, just like Batman and the Joker, Wiseau and Sestero have a unique relationship that makes them destined to do this forever.

No one should be surprised that they have genuine chemistry playing two adversaries who might as well be friends, and not just because of The Room. Their second movie together, Best F(r)iends: Volume One, available worldwide on iTunes on September 25, is a surreal art house film about a drifter and an unusual mortician who form a bizarre business plan and even stranger personal relationship.

Neither of those characters would be out of place in Gotham.

As for Tommy Wiseau as the Clown Prince of Crime, now everyone knows the truth behind the makeup—he might not be the Joker anyone expected, but he’s the one we need right now.

If you could watch these two recreate any scene between Batman and his greatest enemy, which one would you pick? Tell us why in the comments section below.
