The American actor plays a character supposedly on the right side of the law.

Put on a Happy Face
The flawless trailer for Joker 2019 has already inspired fans to create tribute illustrations and art. While the story will no doubt feature many surprises the first trailer is packed full of clues about the focus of the story and who plays a big part of the origin of the clown prince of crime.
