Forget all about those rumors that Johnny Depp might be interested in playing the Riddler in Christopher Nolan’s next Batman movie — and the fact that the Riddler would be completely out of place in a Christopher Nolan Batman movie. Former 90210 actor (and, to be fair, current star of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) Brian Austin Green has thrown his hat into the ring! “I would love to be the Riddler,” he tells MTV today. “I’d like to be in the next Batman, even though I am busy killing machines and people” (in Terminator he means, probably). We don’t really see it, though it’s not like Green hasn’t played a supervillain before, sort of. As you’ll recall, David Silver’s diabolically poor management skills were directly responsible for the financial downfall of an otherwise pretty good nightclub (the Peach Pitt After Dark), plus he did record that rap album, which was at least as terrible as when the Joker threatened to blow up those ferries.
