Todd Phillips Joker film has found its Thomas Wayne in Brett Cullen, the Narcos actor has taken over the role after Alec Baldwin dropped out over scheduling issues.
Cullen has previously had a role in a DC film, playing a congressman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.
Joaquin Phoenix will star as the Clown Prince of Crime.
The role of Thomas Wayne was described as a cheesy, tanned businessman a la 1980s Trump. It’s totally different from what we’re used to seeing from the character. But it remains to be seen if the film will go down that route.
Phillips co-wrote the screenplay with Scott Silver (The Fighter). The film will be produced by Emma Tillinger Koskoff and executive-produced by Richard Baratta.
