It looks as though Jim Parsons doesn’t share Sheldon Cooper’s affinity for The Flash… as he reveals he’d rather play a DC villain on the big screen.
During an interview with MTV News, the 41-year-old star of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ revealed that he’d love to star as The Riddler in an upcoming DC movie.
"I would love to play a superhero in a movie," he said. "I would like to be a villain. And… I would really like to play The Riddler. I don’t feel they’re using the Riddler very much, are they?"
The Riddler’s last big screen outing was in the 1995 cheese-fest, ‘Batman Forever’ – a film which featured Jim Carey in the role of the Riddler, alongside Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face.
