"Child's Play" Actor Brad Dourif Almost Played the Joker in "Batman"

Posted: October 14th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"ChildSubmit Comment
During a New York Comic-Con panel for the 25th anniversary of the horror film "Child's Play," the actor behind the voice of Chucky, Brad Dourif, revealed that he was Tim Burton's original choice to play the Joker in the 1989 "Batman" film.

"Tim Burton saw me on a plane and wanted to cast me and [the studio] said no," explained the actor. The Joker role eventually went to Jack Nicholson, who was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for his performance in the film. "He takes all my roles," joked Dourif.

That wasn't the only time that Dourif was considered to play a villain in a Batman film. When Burton was originally in talks to return for "Batman Forever," the director wanted Dourif to play the Scarecrow.

I'm sure Brad Dourif has been offered every weird role ever, accepting 95% of them.

I actually would have preferred Brad for the role over Jack. You never feel like you're watching the Joker. It's just Jack Nicholson.
