Actor Boyd Holbrook rocked Netflix over the weekend playing The Corinthian, his other antagonist at the comic book property. the Sandman TV Series. Earlier in 2017 Donald Pierce played Logan, it’s starting to look like Holbrook has an affinity for playing the bad guys he’s seen on panels of comics before, so is there anyone else on his radar that he’s eager to play? Speaking in a new interview with men’s HealthHolbrook downplayed the idea, saying that until he remembered The Joker, he was actively looking for another character from the comic book to play in a show or movie.
“I really want to play characters that are foreign to me,” Holbrook said. “Selfishly, because that’s where I get my perspective on a different culture, or a different point of view that someone else has that isn’t mine. I feel like The Sandman is too high on my bar. I’m never that kind of closed-minded guy like I’d never do that, I’d never do that… It really depends. I mean, I guess now we’re talking, clown …that character seems like endlessly reincarnated in an interesting way. Sometimes the anchor is fun, but usually those secondary characters are actually pretty cool to play. There’s just more keys to the keyboard.”
Speaking of Holbrook, every interpretation of The Joker on the big screen has fans somewhere, as well as five of the actors who played him on the big screen in live-action (Caesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto, and Joaquin Phoenix) …. two of them have won Academy Awards for their portrayals of DC Comics villains.
It doesn’t look like Holbrook might get a chance to play the Joker prince of crime on the big screen or in any series anytime soon, especially since Barry Keoghan will fill that role in Batman’s world, but stranger things have happened. Also if you consider that the Joker and The Batman sequels are in the works then potentially there will be two different versions of them on the big screen. That said, Holbrook has another villain he wants to make on his resume.
“It’s not that I have one or that type of preference, it’s just what keeps happening,” he told the outlet about choosing between “good guy and bad guy” roles. “And I think now, after Indiana Jones 5 Comes out, I think you’ll start to see me doing a lot of different things—because I’ve exhausted that aspect. After that, I mean, maybe if Bond came on like a villain, I would do it. But what else?”
Take your pick, Joker or Bond villain.
