Here's a link to three new photos of Heath Ledger as the Joker in "The Dark Knight."  I'm not sure how long these photos will stay up, but they're pretty chilling.

This is easily my most anticipated movie of 2008.  I fully suspect that Ledger's performance will be in line with what co-star Michael Caine said: "Heath's like the most murderous psychopath you've ever seen on the screen.''  That means that we should probably expect an Oscar nomination for Ledger.  Only one acting Oscar has been bestowed posthumously: Peter Finch ("Network") in 1976.  When Ledger died he generated immediate comparisons to James Dean who was twice nominated posthumously for an Oscar ("East of Eden" (1955) and "Giant" (1956)).  He lost both.
