“Fringe” star Joshua Jackson, who was one of a handful of candidates left for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Christopher Nolan’s movies, tells ComingSoon.net he would take another shot at it if given the chance. Here’s the interview clip:
CS: You auditioned for the recent string of Batman movies. Now that Christian Bale is hanging up his cowl, are you gung-ho about trying out for the role again?
Jackson: Ahh… I’m not going to turn down an audition for Batman if they ask me . As much as nobody in their right mind would turn down that job, I don’t know if you really want to be the guy after Chris Nolan and Christian Bale. Those movies are pretty fantastic.
CS: I haven’t heard you growl “I’m Batman,” but you would certainly make a dapper Bruce Wayne.
Jackson: Well, thank you, I do my best . It would have been a different movie if I had been cast. You never want to admit you think somebody else made the right decision when they didn’t hire you, but Christian Bale was pretty amazing. The marriage of Chris Nolan and Christian Bale for those Batman movies was spectacular. I would be intimidated to step into those shoes, but if they asked me to audition, I would.
