Pick-A-Batman Contest Results

This was one of the toughest contests to judge yet!

Still, there can be only one, so from a field of tough contenders, the winners are listed below. Points will appear in our next update.

FIRST PLACE (100 Points): Joel Caris. David Boreanaz is actually a pretty inspired pick. He has a following already, but a relatively small one. He has what I call "Batman Jaw" and he, as Joel astutely pointed out, has been essentially playing the tormented Dark Knight role for years on Angel. Very good work, Joel. This option completely escaped me.

SECOND PLACE (50 points): Dean Esmay. Hugh Jackman could pull it off. He has a great range, from playing Wolverine to dancing in a Broadway musical. I'm willing to give him a shot.

THIRD PLACE (25 points): Mr. E. Dwayne Johnson (AKA the Rock) is another interesting choice. Maybe by now, and given an extra acting class, he can dial down the image, which pretty much constists of glaring all the time. As his WWE character, he plays sauve and debonair, as well as physically intimidating, only he does it to the Nth degree. If he could dial it down, this is a possibility. Not a first place possibility, but still, there it is.

The only problem I had with Keaton was he didn't LOOK the part and needed plastic muscles. I wanted someone who looked the part as well as had the range to do the serious acting required. Heath Ledger, for instance, could act the role, but definitely doesn't look the part.

Congrats to all the winners. Losers can be consoled in knowing that if there were 10 prizes given, they would have been winners easily.

You always seem to be just back from a trip or just about to leave on one.
