Robin Williams won’t be taunting ‘Dark Knight’
HollywoodNews.com: Putting fans at ease, Robin Williams verified that he isn’t playing the Riddler in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming “Dark Knight” sequel.
Williams exclaimed: “They’ve now made it seem like I’m lobbying to play the Riddler in the new movie.
“It’s not true. I was once offered the Joker, then they gave it to Jack Nicholson, then they offered me the Riddler and they gave it to Jim Carrey. I’ve been punked twice, don’t punk me again!
“Now I get the angry people saying, ‘He should never play that part!”
Nonetheless, Williams would love to work under Nolan again. The director tapped Robin Williams and Al Pacino to face off against each other in his 2002 remake of the Norwegian crime drama “Insomnia.” The film which focused on a sleepless cop’s pursuit of a killer was set against Alaska’s season when the sun never sets. In that film, Pacino played the cop and Williams the killer.
Adds Williams: “It’s Chris’ call, man. But to work with him again – oh god, I’d love to, it was a great experience on Insomnia.”
