"I'd play The Riddler in the next Batman
, although it would be hard to top Heath [Ledger]

, call me, I'll do anything. I could be a great character — or some weird little man in the background in Arkham Asylum."
Williams worked with Nolan on the 2003 thriller Insomnia
. Nolan, who directed both Batman Begins
and The Dark Knight
, will also be at the helm of the third installment of the new Batman
Calls to Williams' and Nolan's reps were not immediately returned.
