Moviehole chatted with actor Guy Pearce who revealed that he was never approached for Batman Begins, in contrast to what rumors said…
Now given that experience, one would have thought that he would be more than reluctant to take on, say, Batman. Another of those internet rumours it appears. “Well it never even came about. I never spoke to Chris about it, there was never any thought about it. I heard about it through the Internet and went ‘Oh that could be sort of interesting’. If I was ever to do a Batman it would be with Chris Nolan, But it was funny, as I almost felt like I was experiencing a bit of that without even having to go to work. It was kind of a nice rumour I guess.”
Thanks to ‘Clint’ for the heads up.
