With all the campaign talk, itâ€™s starting to feel like an election year: Johnny Depp for the Riddler, Angelina Jolie versus Maggie Gyllenhaal returning from the dead for Catwoman.
But thereâ€™s a dark horse who wants to get his name on the ballot â€” a name you might not expect â€” Brian Austin Green wants the role of the Riddler in the next Batman film.
â€œI would love to be the Riddler,â€ Brian Austin Green told MTV News.
In case youâ€™re thinking â€œWTF? David Silver?â€ â€” let us remind you that in the years since â€œBeverly Hills, 90210,â€ Green has rebooted himself as an actor. Perhaps not to the same degree as Christopher Nolan rebooted Batman, or Heath Ledger the Joker, but check out Green playing himself in â€œDominoâ€ (for a much-appreciated sense of self-deprecation) or Derek Reese in â€œTerminator: The Sarah Connor Chroniclesâ€ (where heâ€™s barely recognizable), and youâ€™ll come to see that Green has progressed significantly since the days when he competed with Tori Spelling for worst actor.
Green knows itâ€™s a long shot, but despite his role on â€œTerminator,â€ â€œIâ€™d like to be in the next â€˜Batman,â€™ even though I am busy killing machines and people,â€ he said. (We hope he just means on the show).
â€œI hope to God that they donâ€™t try to replace Heath and have the Joker,â€ Green added. â€œAnd Two-Face is gone.â€ So they need a new villain, and the Riddler makes sense,â€ he said. Not that heâ€™s thought it so far ahead that he actually knows what heâ€™d want to do with the Riddler, however.
â€œThatâ€™s impossible to answer now,â€ Green said. â€œThat would take years of preparation. Itâ€™s tough. Heath set the bar at a new level, which I think is fantastic for comic book lovers and movie lovers. He changed the face of what people expect out of those films. If you watch the old ones, I mean, they were great for what they were, having Danny Elfmanâ€™s music, but this is a new level.â€
