Alfred's like Bond. Got to be British.

MVS has English links though

we'll see. Hard to top Michael Caine at this point. I also hope that the script doesn't call for a campy Alfred.

I need to see Anthony Head as Alfred. It would be amazing.

Stephen McHattie, he's Canadian, but who cares?

I actually don't want to see Alfred, for two main reasons. Firstly, Maine Caine is just too brilliant of an actor. I can accept a new Batman, but I'm just not there for a new Alfred. Secondly, Alfred is a wise father figure who give sage advice, but this Batman is in his early forties. It's about time he became the father figure to other younger JL members (maybe Robin, too?) and dispense sage advice himself.

I dig the Stephen McHattie suggestion.

How about Robin Williams as Alfred? He's a great actor and I think that he could pull it off. Plus, he's worked with Affleck before.

Jennifer Lopez. She banged Affleck. For that reason, she should be Leslie Thompkins

What does Jennifer Lopez have to do with anything, your comment makes no sense.

Nor does Robin Williams as Alfred because he worked with Ben

I added the working with Ben thing as an afterthought. My original point was that Williams is a talented actor.

Talented. But his talent doesn't mean he's Alfred.

Danny DeVito is talented, does that mean he should be Alfred?

This time for once I would like us to get an Alfred that actually resembles how is typically portrayed in the comics. In terms of physical appearance. Never really been a live action Alfred that resembles comic Alfred at all. With that in mind the idea of Timothy Dalton greatly intrigues me
