Here is a riddle for you, what do you get when you ask Justin Timberlake about his desired acting role? Well, according to Variety, you get a confession straight from Justin himself regarding his dream to play the Riddler.

In case you're not up on your comics, the Riddler is one of Batman's many rivals and considered a super villain. Why would successful solo artist, good guy and heartthrob JT want to take on the role that was last played by Jim Carey in 1995’s Batman Forever? By way of explanation Timberlake said, "The Riddler is my favorite villain. The Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I'm gonna play crazy, I wanna play proper crazy."

What do you think SodaHeads? Would Justin Timberlake make a good Riddler, or is he proper crazy for even considering the role?

    I actually think hes a good actor but crazy seems to be the one thing I cant see him doing. Why are they making another Batman? Work on your other heroes DC, or better yet get Joseph G. Levitt to play Nightwing with maybe a Batgirl/Huntress in the movie. That would be a good sequel to the new Batman series.

    A shallow, vapid actor shouldn't be playing a deep and rich character

    he can expose the breast of either catwoman or batgirl...and do for the batman franchise what he did to the superbowl

    I could see him doing it. He's not who I would initially think of for the role, but now that it's been brought up I can imagine him in it.

    He lacks the skills and personality to even come close to the insanity required to play such a villain, just roll with Jim Carrey again he is perfect for him.

    He really was great in that role.

    All the recurring villains, really. Burgess Meredith, Cesar Romero, all three Catwomen...

    No. There are others that would make a better riddler than Justin Timberlake.

    When remaking a movie, you can't cast the roles worse than what came before.
    Jim Carry is a hard act to follow. Jack Nicholson was perfect as the joker, so when Health Ledger took the role, he changed the whole character.
    Nobody can out-jack Jack!
    Justin is not much of an actor, so no, he could never pull this off. It'd be an absurd choice.

    He's way too recognizable. I vote for Luke Evans, super talented and easy on the eyes. ;)

    I want PeterDinklage actually, I don't even care about his height because I think he's just so captivating to watch

    I love him however I think he'd be better as the penguin villain he'd be awesome for that role however riddler is a very fluid character and I think JT can really pull that off with his moves
  • Nuke Angel g... 2013/09/02 04:01:42

    I think if they wrote the script where Riddler was showing himself on a monitor but it was really a cgi version that looked like someone else but DInklage was really pulling the strings I think that would be amazing
  • Angel g... Nuke 2013/09/05 11:31:50
    Angel got her wings back
    Surely that defeats the point of casting him though and you always have batman interacting with the villains so I doubt they'd go for it :(
  • Nuke Angel g... 2013/09/05 21:19:33

    Not really, the Riddler is about smarts, Batman figuring out the puzzle of the crimes, in Batman forever he didn't really even meet Riddler until far into the movie so it could work, you just need good writing to make it work and it could work great.

    Justin can do anything, and I bet if he does play the Riddler, he'll steal the movie.

    If he doesn't get the part he is thinking of changing his name to "Justa Timberpond"!

    Jim Carey was a hilarious crazy, Justin Timberlake got lucky with The Social Network I don't think he'd be able to pull off a good crazy to be The Riddler.
