Tim Curry who is best known for his roles in films like The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the mini-series adaptation of Stephen King’s IT, spoke recently at the Fan Expo in Canada about what really happened with his role voicing of The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series.
For those unaware of the history, Tim Curry was cast as The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series for a few episodes before being fired. Mark Hamill was then bought on and had already voiced the character Ferris Boyle for the episode “Heart of Ice. “
Of course we know how well it worked out for Mark Hamill as he is considered by many to be the definitive Joker, but many fans do wonder what Tim Curry sounded like in the role. It was said that Curry was replaced because his voice was too scary, but as you’ll hear in this Q&A that was not the case.
His audio recordings have never been released to the public and would certainly be a treasured item for fans of the series to hear.
Fast-forward to the 29 minute mark:
