Marc Maron is headed to the DC Universe.
The Glow actor is being eyed for a role in Todd Phillips' Joker.
The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as the man who will become the Clown Prince Of Crime, with Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro and Frances Conroy also expected to star.
Should the deal close, Maron would portray an agent on Robert De Niro’s talk show who plays a part in booking Phoenix’s character, and causes him to go mad and become The Joker.
Phillips will co-write and direct the Warner Bros. movie, which opens October 4th, 2019.
Insiders stress that Jared Leto, who starred as the Joker in Suicide Squad, is still on board to portray the character in the DC Universe and that the Phoenix flick has no effect on what happens with Leto’s character in future DC films. Leto will star in his own standalone movie.
Marc Maron can currently be seen as television director Sam Sylvia on Glow.
