There's 2 ways to do it. The Jesse Eisenberg way. Meaning, the nerdy, thin, socially awkward Nygma. Whether it be the traditional way or some kind of hacker to fit with the modern times. Someone like Paul Dano or Michael Emerson if you want older would work very well. Casey Affleck could have worked if his bro wasn't playing Batman.
Or the suave, confident, narcissistic Riddler. Perhaps an investigator or something like that. Dicaprio, Guy Pearce, Matthew Goode, Joaquin Phoenix, Jude Law.
I dunno about not having the range, comedians are usually pretty good with serious roles. Look at Robin Williams and Jim Carrey.
I like your suggestion of Matthew Goode and Jude Law though. No way that DiCaprio or Joaquin Phoenix would do it.(Although i think DiCaprio would be cool)
Also, Neil Patrick Harris is in Affleck's new flick Gone Girl, that ought to be a serious role.
