Re: The New Supporting Cast of Batman...
Cranston for Gordon and Hurt/Brosnan/Dalton for Alfred are my picks.
But for the out of the box thinking, in the way that the villainous Gary Oldman was cast as Commissioner Gordon...
I think Malcolm McDowell or Alan Rickman could pull off Alfred. Like Oldman, theyre known or typecast as the evil character for most of their careers. But also like Oldman they are fantastic actors who im sure can toss out the "cold" and act warmer for the role. And please people don't tell me they cant do it.
They have that sarcasm and wit anyway. So if any of those 5 actors are cast for Alfred, im a happy man.
