Robin Williams is a talented Oscar winning actor and comedian who’s tackled every role under the sun. Lately he’s had the yearning to play an iconic character in one of the most anticipated sequels of the decade. According to a recent interview, he wants to appear in Christopher Nolan’s Batman 3 as none other than The Riddler (previously played by Jim Carrey in Batman Forever). Dammit Williams, aren’t you about 20 years too late for this?
While speaking to the UK’s Empire Magazine, Williams expressed his serious interest in playing ANY role in the next Batman no matter how big or small.
“I’d play The Riddler in the next Batman, although it would be hard to top Heath [Ledger] as the villain, and I’m a little hairy for tights. I’m using this article as an ad. Chris, call me, I’ll do anything. I could be a great character – or some weird little man in the background in Arkham Asylum.”
Williams worked with Nolan in the thriller Insomnia back in 2002 and would love to collaborate with him again. I don’t know about him playing The Riddler but it would be cool to see him pop up as “Lunatic #3″ in Arkham.
Who makes the best Riddler?
All jokes aside, do you think Robin Williams would make a good Riddler?
