Jim Parsons, known best for his role as Sheldon Cooper in the popular U.S. sitcom The Big Bang Theory, has revealed that he’d like to play Batman’s deranged nemesis The Riddler.
Parsons told MTVUK, “I would like to be a villain. I would really like to play The Riddler. I don’t feel they’re using The Riddler very much, are they?”
Following a comment that the Big Bang Theory star would be “dope” as The Riddler, Parsons teased, “Wouldn’t I? You hear that? I would be ‘dope’ as The Riddler. Girls, tell your friends.”
With Jim Carrey being the most recent actor to portray the crazed Batman villain on the big screen, Parsons would certainly have his work cut out to match that performance.
