In an interview with IGN last month, voice actor Mark Hamill says that Arkham Asylum 2 will be his last time voicing The Joker. Hamill's portrayal of the character is considered to be one of the best characterizations of the villain by many fans.

He almost didn't return to play The Joker in the first Arkham Asylum video game, but when he learned Paul Dini (writer) and Kevin Conroy (voice of Batman) were involved with the project, he changed his mind. His performance in the game wound up winning him much praise from critics.

Now, with Arkham Asylum 2, Hamill says this is really the last time he'll be playing the character, saying, "This will be my last, there's no question about that. But it's the last hurrah."

Not sure if you've posted this elsewhere, but the lastest voice for the joker is John DiMiaggio, aka the voice of Bender. He's featured in the new animated Batman: Under the Red Hood. I thought he did a great job. They screened the film at comic con this last week, and John was really nervous, and admitted that he had never been so scared doing VO because its The Joker, as he said 'big clown shoes to fill.'
