Unlikely Movie Rumor of the Day: Brian Austin Green as The Riddler

by at . Comments

With a new version of 90210 airing on The CW this fall, perhaps Brian Austin Green - who played David Silver on the original Beverly Hills, 90210 - thinks there's a huge, mainstream push for stars of the show to receive extra attention these days.

What else could make the relatively unknown actor mention himself as a candidate for the next Batman villain.

"I would love to be the Riddler," Green said to MTV. He further explained "I hope to God that they don't try to replace Heath and have the Joker. And Two-Face is gone. So they need a new villain, and the Riddler makes sense."

It does. But so does the idea of Johnny Depp taking on the role.


Green sounded serious about his desire to play the part, however. He explained that he'd need a lot of time to prepare for it.

"That would take years of preparation. It's tough. Heath set the bar at a new level, which I think is fantastic for comic book lovers and movie lovers. He changed the face of what people expect out of those films. If you watch the old ones, I mean, they were great for what they were, having Danny Elfman's music, but this is a new level."

What do you think? Does Brian Austin Green stand any chance at portraying The Riddler? Dude is dating Megan Fox.

So he must have something going for him.
