Same with Javier Bardem's thick Spanish accent.

I liked the idea of Paul Bettany back when TDK casting rumors were flying around, and I still think he could be good. He looks the part, and Gangster No. 1 showed he can be crazy enough. In fact, he's halfway to being The Joker in that movie.
I like to think of gangster no. 1 as sort of a joker origin story
