Harvey Dent/Two-Face is one of Batman's most tragic villains and one of my personal favourites. The long time advocate for justice and friend to both Bruce Wayne and Batman became one of his most dangerous enemies who constantly tested the limits between justice, vengeance, order and chaos. Along with a great origin story in Batman: The Long Halloween, there are dozens of great Two-Face story lines. On television, @nicholasdagosto
plays a pre-disfigured, albeit temperamental, Harvey Dent in @gothamonfox.
In BTAS and TNBA, Richard Moll voices the character, emphasizing his divisive mental state and the tragic end to Harvey and Bruce's friendship. Billy Dee Williams acted as a pre-disfigured Harvey Dent in 1989's Batman. It was intended for him to continue the role in the sequel though he was supplanted as the film's villain by Danny Devito's Penguin. In addition to Williams, there have been two other great film adaptations of the character: the one and only Tommy Lee Jones in Batman Forever and the talented Aaron Eckhart in The Dark Knight. Two-Face has appeared in dozens of other cartoons, cameos and video games including the @batmanarkham
series voiced by @officialtroybaker.
Portraying this character is no easy feat. The actor must balance the charming, intelligent and committed to justice Harvey Dent with the angry, vengeful, and violent Two-Face. He is certainly a tragic character whose both halves are rewarding and fun to watch. Given this, I think that the great actor Joseph Gilgun would be perfect for this role. His unique personality, commitment to every role and ability to balance a character on a knife's edge of good and bad make me think that Joseph would deliver a great take on the character. Just catch him in @preacheramc
for evidence. What do you think? Who would you cast?
Next week, we cast one of Batman's allies who will be getting her first big screen adaptation in 2020: The Huntress!
