If you hang around long enough, they think you're good. It's either my tenacity or stupidity - I'm not sure which.

Some suggestions for you :

The Batmobile wasn't a stickshift, and it was a challenge to drive, believe me.

There was a time when 'Batman' really kept me from getting some pretty good roles, and I was asked to do what I figured were important features. However, Batman was there, and very few people would take a chance on me walking onto the screen. And they'd be taking people away from the story.

I am a simple man, though my wife says I am complicated. I'll trust her on that one.

'Batman' was a colorful and wild ride.

Maybe we could find some way to send barges of trash to the sun and incinerate it all. Hey, it's an idea. It's an idea!

To be an icon... I guess that's a privilege.

Anything that triggers good memories can't be all bad.

There were definitely times when I regretted ever being Batman.

To play the leading man in a 'Three Stooges' movie, you've got to think funny. Thank God I think funny.

I'm interested in film - any aspect - acting, directing, writing.

Not to be able to move around or do things without thinking - that's tough. I may end up that way, but if I do, I hope to hell my intellect will take over, and I'll find some kind of joy and a way to contribute.

I was a maverick. I went to five different colleges looking for I don't know quite what.

You've got a guy in a cape and tights running around fighting crime 24-7; this is not normal. But it worked because the kids loved it and the adults laughed with it.

If you paint a picture and I paint a picture, we each want to do it our own way. And we'll stand or fall on whatever we did.
