Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I'd play the Riddler in the next Batman, although it'd be hard to top Heath Ledger as the villain, and I'm a little hairy for tights. Plus, 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. See more »

Trivia:

Was offered the role of The Riddler in Batman Forever (1995), which eventually went to Jim Carrey. See more »

Trademark:

Wild improvised stream-of-consciousness comedy dialogue where he would do cultural references, impersonations and one-liners with rapid switching. See more »

Star Sign:

Cancer
