Barry Keoghan got his part in Batman with an audition for another villain

Audition tape, which British GQ posted on their Twitter account, which features Keoghan wearing a makeshift Riddler costume of his own design, and walking in slow motion down the hallway to the assortment of “Danse Macabre” by Camille Saint-Saëns. Keoghan’s outfit consists of a black sweater, bold eyeliner, a black melon hat (a common accessory on the Riddler’s head), a pair of bright green suspenders, and a cane silver. The vibe is definitely inspired by Alex DeLarge, the character played by Malcolm McDowell in Stanley Kubrick’s 1972 film “A Clockwork Orange”.

According to the GQ interview, Keoghan merely heard that “The Batman” was happening, and filmed himself out of excitement. “I want to be the Riddler,” he said. His film reel reads simply as “A movie by Barry Keoghan.” Eventually, Keoghan will pass the reel to Dylan Clark, the producer of “The Batman”, as a means of discussing the possibility of acting in the film. Looks like Keoghan was too late; Jonah Hill has been cast as the Riddler. Eventually, Hill dropped out and was replaced by Dano. Keoghan, still hopeful, begs Clark to keep going regardless. It must have worked, because four months later, Keoghan was called by his agent… about the Joker. “But,” his agent added, “you can’t tell anyone.”

Keoghan has become widely known for his intense and brilliant performances in “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” by Yorgos Lanthimos and “Dunkirk” by Christopher Nolan, and when his name first appeared in the series. credits of “The Batman” on IMDb, some people became curious. On opening night, the audience understood the secret. Keoghan – heavy fake makeup that distorts his face into a smug, smug grin – is this universe’s version of the Clown Prince of Crime.
