Former Tori Spelling deflowerer, turntable spinner and current Terminator TV star, Brian Austin Green, has thrown his hat (sideways baseball cap?) into the casting ring for Batman 3. B.A.G. was wowed by Heath Ledger’s performance in The Dark Knight and feels deep down he’s the right thespian to play The Riddler in the next installment…
“I would love to be the Riddler,” Green told MTV in all seriousness. “I hope to God they don’t replace Heath and have the Joker [again]. So they need a new villain and The Riddler makes sense. …[My Riddler] would take years of preparation. It’s tough. Heath set the bar a new level.”
How do our readers feel about this? Put your love of 90210 aside and be honest. I mean, on one hand, fanboy favorites Johnny Depp or Hugo Weaving could wash away Jim Carrey‘s annoying red hair and green nylon body suit, but on the deformed other, Brian Austin Green made One Stop Carnival, one of the indisputable white rapper masterpieces of the ’90s. Riddle me this? How many babysitters had their beloved copies thrown into the woods? Plus, B.A.G.’s last name is a big qualification for the role, and so is “I bang Megan Fox.” Brian Austin Green, the actor, the question, the joke.
Discuss: B.A.G. for The Riddler? Megan Fox for Catwoman? Tori Spelling for Bane?
Balls: /Film reader and B.A.G. contrarian Joseph Ferrarelli says, “Ya know what? I was down on [casting] Ledger. I’m not going to make the same mistake twice.”
