Tom Waits, Joker

It's well-known that Johnny Depp based his Jack Sparrow on Keith Richards. I wonder, though, if Heath Ledge, in a similar moment of inspiration, used Tom Waits as a rough sketch for his Joker. After watching this clip of Waits introducing/playing "Chocolate Jesus," I am convinced that my theory is one hundred percent correct.
