In The Big Bang Theory's 200th episode, the beloved Batman actor Adam West showed up to hang with the gang. Surprising to no one, the Dark Knight just happened to come up in conversation.
In the clip, the group debates who is the best actor to don the cape and cowl, and West scoffs when Christian Bale's name is mentioned.
"Even my poodle knows Bale's overrated"
Ouch, that's pretty harsh. I enjoyed Bale's take, but I did loath the ridiculousness of the voice at times. As for West, he has Keaton ahead of him, and pretty much every other bat actor ever to don the cowl, including himself.
"It should be me, Keaton, Kilmer, Lego, Bale, and the pretty boy Clooney."
The fact that Lego Batman ranks above Bale is hilarious, though if we are mentioning animated takes, the Justice League Batman takes them all, hands down.
