Jim Parsons Wants to Play Riddler, Ruin Batman Again

Things didn't go so well the last time a tall, skinny, popular comic actor named Jim donned the green question mark tights!

In an effort to put the DC Comics cinematic universe out of its misery, Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons has thrown his hat into the ring to play The Riddler. The news comes via an interview with MTV UK, but since we don't speak British, we relied on Comic Book Resources to translate it:

"I would like to be a villain," said Parsons. "And I would really like to play the Riddler. I don't feel they're using the Riddler very much, are they?" The MTV UK interviewer seemed to agree with Parsons casting idea, proclaiming the notion "dope."

"Did you hear that?" continued Parsons. "I would be dope as the Riddler."


The last time The Riddler appeared on the big screen was 1995's Batman Forever, when Jim Carrey played the character under director Joel Schumacher. That, along with Schumacher's 1997 followup, Batman and Robin, nearly killed the superhero movie genre. Apparently, Parsons is tired of being typecast as a geek and wants to take his revenge on all superhero films by playing the cursed character again.

Shame on you, Jim Parsons! As if we didn't already have enough reasons to be mad at The Big Bang Theory!

Here's the video:
