Reports have unofficially confirmed that Robin Williams has been tapped to play Dr. Hugo Strange in the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. Williams has always been a great comedic actor, but while his roles in drama were astounding, they were greatly undervalued. Williams is the most successful comedic actor to do dramatic work as well, as stars like Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey don’t switch genres as easy.
The Dark Knight Rises will also feature Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (a.k.a. Catwoman) and Tom Hardy as Bane. While it would be great to see Williams in this film, check it out here first to see when the reports are confirmed.
