As a talk show host...
TV Guide reports that Conan O'Brien has been cast as the voice of talk show host Dave Endochrine in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 from Warner Bros/DC Universe.
Endochrine interviews the Joker (Michael Emerson) after his release from Arkham Asylum.
The rest of the cast includes Peter Weller as Batman, Mark Valley as Superman, Ariel Winter as Robin, David Selby as Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon and Michael McKean as Dr. Wolper, the Joker's Arkham psychiatrist.
O'Brien said: "I've got a great affection for animation. I've always been interested in drawing, and I grew up on the Warner Bros. cartoons — which is where I think I learned a lot of my comedy. I think I got a lot of my comedic timing from the Road Runner and Bugs Bunny cartoons."
The announcement was made today at the New York Comic Con. The film will be released in early 2013 on DVD, Blu-ray, on demand and for download.
