So much so that he's begging people to be in their movies - like, literally!
Robin Williams is reportedly pleading with the movie execs behind Chris Nolan's next Batman movie to have he casted as the villian. According to Robin, back in the day, he was shut out twice by
better other actors for pivotal roles in the franchise and now he thinks he is due. He told Empire Magazine:
"I would do Batman in a second. I'd play The Riddler in the next one, although it would be hard to top Heath Ledger as the villain and I'm a little hairy for tights…The Batman films have screwed me twice before: years ago they offered me The Joker and then gave it to Jack Nicholson, then they offered me The Riddler and gave it to Jim Carrey. I'd be like, 'Ok, is this a real offer? If it is, then the answer's yes. Don't pump me again motherf**kers'."
Wow! Sour grapes, Mrs. Doubtfire!
Hey, there's an idea! How about you try and get a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel made?
There is more of a chance you'll get that role than ANY role in the Batman franchise! (But not by much…you've really gotten old and unfunny since the old days!)
