John Lithgow Was Almost The Joker

Everyone remembers Jack Nicholson as the perfect villain in the classic 1989 Batman movie directed by Tim Burton. Michael Keaton played Batman and for a lot of kids he is their definitive version of the classic character. Personally Adam West will always be my favorite, but to each their own. Warner BrosNicholson played the Joker and he played him very well. The big smile, the goofy dancing, and that iconic laugh. All of it was pretty amazing, but it actually could have been a lot different than we remember. IMDBSure, Michael Keaton wasn't the only person Burton had in mind
