Justin Timberlake Says He Wants To Play The Riddler


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.
