Lady Gaga “Joker” Role Will ‘Blow Minds’

However casting director Francine Maisler (“Dune,” “Challengers”) revealed at a Karlovy Vary Talk (via Deadline) that everyone will be surprised by Gaga’s work on the film and that she exceeded any expectations people might have placed on her:

“She’s so good in it, you guys. She’s going to blow your mind. I didn’t suggest Lady Gaga. It wasn’t my idea. That was Todd Phillips, before me. But I will tell you, she’s really surprising – and really good. I saw it and I was really surprised.

I mean, we all knew what she could do in A Star is Born, but I thought, ‘Oh, well, that’s kind of in her wheelhouse.’ Something she could do and just be real. But this…Man, she’s good. Joaquin blows your mind, but that she could keep up with him, and be real – and not just wiped off the screen by what that role is and what the performance is – shows she’s good.”

Gaga has previously said she’s doing her own version of the character, one very authentic to the new movie which has been dubbed a musical of sorts albeit not clear how that element fits in.

Omg. Do we have to care about this?

I really don't give a shit about Lady Gaga. I know I'm supposed to like her, being gay and all, but she just irritates me.

Yeah, sure.

I will not like Lady Gaga in her in “Joker”.

She's just brownnosing Gaga, to an embarrassing degree.

This is a musical? Oy vey!

Doubt those incel fans of the first movie will enjoy a musical sequel. Too faggy.

She’s smart having transitioned to an actress. I’ll give her that.

That’s all.

My thoughts exactly, r7.

Not a fan of musicals myself, tbh. I should probably turn in my gay card.

by Anonymousreply 12July 7, 2024 7:43 PM

She looked crazier than Joaquin in the trailer, which is quite a feat. Also, a big name actor playing a mentally unstable person is sure-fire Oscar bait.

by Anonymousreply 13July 7, 2024 7:45 PM

She’s an impressive performer who continues to grow and excel. I enjoy her success as much as anyone can enjoy a “celebrity.”

Good for Gaga.

I can see this film being a total disaster ... or a fascinating train wreck.

Did we really need another version of this played out character

by Anonymousreply 16July 7, 2024 10:33 PM

No one will ever be better than the late, great Arleen Sorkin.

She breathed life into that character and will never be topped. Everyone else is a pale imitation.

by Anonymousreply 17July 7, 2024 10:35 PM

She is a terrible actress, wooden, unable to grasp human emotion. It'll be a bomb.

You know it is really going to suck when they have to start planting shit like this in the press a full 3 months before the film hits theaters.

The publicity around this, and always around her, is going to be insufferably over the top. JFC

by Anonymousreply 24July 8, 2024 1:15 AM

r24 It's going to be like The House of Gucci press tour, but on steroids because everything will have to revolve around her, as Phoenix already got his Oscar for the same role. As if we weren't being punished enough by the presidential campaign.

I liked her in AHS Hotel and her music is fine but I don’t get why we’re supposed to buy her as this mega talent.

What r24 said. The press for this will be nonstop up our asses for months.

Madonna will have another stroke if Gaga gets another Oscar nod.

by Anonymousreply 31July 8, 2024 6:01 AM

I guess it is easier to blame Madonna (a person nowhere near connected to this film) than accept the fact this PR release is beyond nauseating in its ridiculous fawning and this film looks to be god awful.

If it makes you feel better you can call me a bitter Sorkin fan who doesn't get nearly the recognition she deserves for bringing this character into the mainstream.

Can you read? She clearly says..."I didn’t suggest Lady Gaga. It wasn’t my idea. That was Todd Phillips, before me."

Saw the trailer at least a month ago and could tell she would be fantastic and I wouldn't cross the street to meet her but will give credit when due.

Gaga is a natural on the silver screen. I wish she would lend the Queen her acting coach.

Best Actress will come down to Gaga or Angelina Jolie for Maria callas.

No one else is in contention

Gaga seems to attract a lot of low brow hyperbole.

by Anonymousreply 43July 9, 2024 9:00 AM

Oh you bitches hate everything.

Gaga is pretty great. Certainly more interesting than any newish pop star.

I am not a Joker/comic book fan, but I did see the trailer and she seemed fantastic.

How are Joaquin Phoenix and I the same age? He started out looking age appropriate.
