The lights are on
Mark Hamill has been playing the Joker's voice for more than a decade, but he recently retired his take on the character. For Batman: Arkham Origins, Troy Baker has stepped in to fill the clown's shoes, and he offered a taste of his Joker at New York Comic Con.
The clip below is from a panel covering the development of Batman: Arkham Origins. They talk about bringing Baker on board to play the Joker in the game, and he reads a monologue from Alan Moore's comic, The Killing Joke.
Troy Baker has been a hugely prolific video game voice actor this year playing the roles of Booker in Bioshock Infinite and Joel in The Last of Us, and many others. Batman: Arkham Origins is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC on October 25.

Wow. After that I wouldn't mind seeing him take on any and all future roles of the Joker. That was impressive.
It looks like someone's waving around Yuna's staff there at the end.
I am so ready to play the Mp again.
wow he does a good job for the new joker
I was already pretty pumped about Baker's inclusion in the Arkham Origins cast but now I'm completely sold. The guy has an astronomical amount of talent and I have no doubt he'll do The Joker justice.
Wow. He can even do the Hamill laugh. He's crazy good!
Such a talented Actor.
I was extremely surprised that he was announced as the Joker, but I knew they had to have picked him for a reason. And with that monologue...WOW, it's pretty obvious why. Troy Baker is an amazing voice actor, and he was a charming guy when I met him at an anime convention in the past. He definitely deserves the work/parts he's been getting.
