Todd Phillips’ film Joker is shaping up to have a really great cast. Today we learned via his own personal podcast that actor/comedian, Bryan Callen, has landed a role in the film.
“I’m doing the Joker. I was offered a part. That’ll be fun, but I think it’s only a couple days. Play an aging dancer, stripper. I don’t want to go into the details. I can’t go into the details, but just know it’s gonna be good. And I hope my psoriasis is flaring cause that’ll be very funny. I’ll be in a Speed-O, I can’t wait. I have some ideas for it.”
Bryan is no stranger to a Todd Phillips’ film, he played in both The Hangover and The Hangover Part 2. Bryan also was a regular on the sketch comedy show, MADtv. Bryan is also a recurring character on ABC’s The Goldbergs. The Joker film will star Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker with actress Zazie Beetz, actor Robert De Niro, and actress Frances Conroy all rumored to be cast in the film.
