Can't wait another two weeks for the debut of the featurette/prologue of The Dark Knight before I Am Legend on IMAX screens across the U.S.? Hopefully, this groovy image of Heath Ledger as The Joker from the January 2008 cover of the UK-based film magazine Empire -- along with a short interview -- will whet your appetite in the short term.

So, how will Ledger play the Clown Prince of Crime? "I ended up landing more in the realm of a psychopath - someone with very little to no conscience towards his acts. He's just an absolute sociopath, a cold-blooded, mass-murdering clown, and Chris has given me free rein. Which is fun, because there are no real boundaries to what The Joker would say or do. Nothing intimidates him, and everything is a big joke," Ledger told Empire.

Don't know about you, but I'm looking for a copy of the new Empire today!
