During SDCC 2014 I got a chance to talk with Troy Baker about his recent role as the Joker in the upcoming animated movie Batman: Assault on Arkham. While he was making his way down the press line I commented to Chad about what an attractive man he was. which led to how our interview started out, and then ended with a Happy Birthday wish to Chad from his favorite game character of all time.
