Justin Timberlake was recently asked if he’d be interested in playing Robin to Affleck’s Batman during an interview with Fresh 102.7 FM. His answer?
Not a chance in hell. I ain’t playin’ Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie. I just don’t.
Well, maybe not as the hero anyway. Timberlake went on to add:
Now VILLAIN! I’ll tell you the villain I want to play more than anything because I grew up loving Batman, funny enough, is the Riddler. The Riddler is my favorite villain. The Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I’m gonna play crazy, I’m wanna play like proper crazy. I’m ready. The Riddler. Gimme a call.
Um. Do I get a vote?
Apparently, this question is coming up because Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake are currently doing promotion for their new film Runner, Runner. I think Justin is a passable actor, but I mean…come on.
That’s my 2 bits. Heck, check out the trailer for yourself after the break—but I’m voting no on this idea right here and now.
