Personal Quote:

I had enormous fun playing the Joker on Batman (1966). I ended up doing something like 20 episodes of Batman, as well as the full-length feature film version [Batman: The Movie (1966)]. There was certainly nothing hard about that assignment! Even the makeup sessions weren't too bad. It took about an hour-and-a-half to put the full makeup on, including the green wig. I didn't mind it at all. See more »

Trivia:

Is one of two Batman villains to share roles with actors who played Batman. He, Adam West and Val Kilmer have all played John "Doc" Holliday, in Frontier Marshal (1939), Colt .45 (1957), Lawman (1958) and Tombstone (1993), respectively. Christian Bale and Heath Ledger both played Bob Dylan in I'm Not There. (2007). See more »
