JOKER: FOLIE A DEUX Adds INDUSTRY Actor Harry Lawtey In Mysterious Role

Another casting addition for Todd Phillips' Joker: Folie à Deux here, with Industry star Harry Lawtey signing on for an undisclosed, but significant role alongside Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga...

As Todd Phillips’ Joker: Folie à Deux continues to round out its cast, the latest addition is Industry star Harry Lawtey. The 25-year-old British actor has also appeared in The Magpie Murders, City of Tiny Lights, and The Pale Blue Eyes.

As is so often the case, no details on his character were disclosed, but Deadline reports that he is expected to have a "big role" in the upcoming sequel.

Lawtey joins Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn, and Zazie Beetz as the returning Sophie Dummond. We recently learned that Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener and Jacob Lofland have also joined the cast in mysterious roles.

Plot details are still mostly under wraps, but we do know that the majority of the film will take place in Arkham Asylum, and contain significant "musical elements." A recent rumor also suggested that Gaga's take on Quinn will have a bigger role than originally reported, with the story playing out entirely from her perspective.

Apparently, this is where the song and dance numbers come in, as Harls "views her relationship with Joker" through musical sequences.

It's an interesting direction to take this sequel in, for sure, but Phillips has clearly earned a lot of trust at the studio after the first film proved to be a such a massive box office success.

Joker: Folie à deux is set to hit theaters on October 4, 2024.
