Actors Who Almost Played Superheroes & Villains On TV Shows And Movies

Frank Sinatra As The Joker

There have been many rumors of cast switches for the original Batman TV series, including who was asked to play certain parts and who said after the show became a cult classic that they had wanted a part. For example, many people were set to play the villains, including Frank Sinatra. Yes, Ol’ Blue Eyes could have been Ol’ Green Hair. Burt Ward himself confirmed this rumor years later. “From what I understand, Frank Sinatra was very upset because he couldn’t play the Joker,” Ward said in an interview. “Cesar Romero had already been signed.”
