    Nathan Fillion as Harley Quinn would be the best thing ever and you know it.

    This guy would get tongues wagging if cast. The youngest suggestion, but he's looking older nowadays, and the makeup department could easily add to it.

    Tommy Lee Jones would be even better. Imagine him in Harley's costume from the Arkham games, saying things like "puddin'" and "Mr J". :ninja:

    I saw someone suggest Bill Nighy and I'd be all for him.

    I wouldn't mind McDowell. If anything, it would be a career resurgence from the crap he's been doing the last couple of years or so.

    He could definitely do the snark, it's the fatherly thing that's more of a concern. That being said, he is an actor...

    I see him doing a better job at being fatherly than Rickman and Nighy.

    And it's not because of my distaste of Rickman and Nighy in the role. It's because I've actually seen McDowell be pleasant and friendly...granted it was in a South Park episode where he played a narrator :hehe:

    Not his greatest role of course, but there he was, as I said, pleasant and friendly. It's actually enough to dispel a lot of the CO perception that people still think of.

    Great minds think alike :D

    Firth has the qualities that would work great for Alfred. Sure he's 52, but he looks older. And as I said, the makeup department can work wonders in Hollywood ;)

    Thanks, Nick :)

    With Firth, all they have to do is stick some glasses on him, shave his hair and grey it, give him a moustache, done :D

    Yeah true. And ive seen McDowell be fatherly too. Even recently, the first Rob Zombie Halloween movie where he's looking after young Michael Myers, there's a warm, sincere vibe about him.

    McDowell was my first choice originally for Alfred. I still think he can pull it off. But they'll probably go with somebody more obvious like John Hurt.

    How about a more updated Alfred, like in Beware the Batman? I wouldn't mind a capable Alfred, who was a former MI6, can take care of himself and helps to keep Bruce sharp.
