The Riddler?

Who do you think would be a good person to play The Riddler? I think Neil Patrick Harris could play The Riddler well.

Re: The Riddler?

Patton Oswalt should play the Penguin.

Re: The Riddler?

With the new Batman movie coming out, is this going to be like after TDK came out and everybody with a random thought about the franchise starts a new thread?

If you want some attention this question should probably be it's own thread.

Anthony Michael Hall sure thought he was going to play him when he got a part in THE DARK KNIGHT...turned out to be a red herring.

Holy shit was that annoying. I still remember the post of someone claiming it was not only the best superhero movie of all time (sure, why not?), but one of the greatest mob movies of all time too. ()

Great suggestion that makes way too much sense for Hollywood to actually follow.

Indeed. Saddens me we never got to see him in another Nolan film. Or hell...a bigger presense here in the states. Happy to see him in Lock Out.

Re: The Riddler?

To be fair, Guy Pearce was in both of the last two Best Picture Oscar winners. Which is great news for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark!

Honestly this choice would make some sense since Jim has delivered some serious roles since and probly honed into this straight-face more, and would deliver something truly creepy, channeling that Cable Guy thing but to the max.

The Godfather comparisons were second in hilarity only to the "Joker's cheap knife" rants.

That was made way early on, probably when TDK cast was revealed.
