Take this for what you will, but Johnny Depp certainly isn't shooting down rumors that he may portray The Riddler in a sequel to The Dark Knight.

During a recent radio interview promoting his band, the actor briefly commented on the recent talk floating around about him portraying this iconic character in the next Batman movie:

Host: Hey Johnny, a listener called in earlier said you have to ask about the rumors on the internet of you doing the Riddler.
Johnny Depp: Oh yeah, I heard about that. Not that I know of.

Host: You'd be a good choice.
Johnny Depp: It seems like it'd be a fun gig for a while, yeah.

Johnny Depp is arguably the best actor alive today. He's quite versatile and often plays nutty characters.

Depp got his start on the television series, 21 Jump Street. Since then, the Kentucky-born actor has gone on to star in major movies such as Edward Scissorhands, Benny & Joon, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Sleepy Hollow, all four of the Pirate of the Caribbean films, Finding Neverland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factoy, Public Enemies, Alice in Wonderland, The Tourist, The Rum Diary, and Dark Shadows.

To say the least, this actor can pretty much play any role out there.
