I remember back in the day when Tim Burton's Batman movie was first announced all the speculation as to who would play The Joker. Ray Liotta was mentioned, and that would have been interesting. Jack Nicholson's casting gave the film an extra level of respect and I liked what he did with the role. Still, he never looked right for the part and I had another choice at the time: James Woods. He was tall and lean and was known for playing psychos and high-intensity characters. I would have loved to have seen him as the clown prince of crime.
