Kiefer Sutherland was Almost Robin in "Batman"
In an interview with On The Box, actor Kiefer Sutherland (best known for starring in the action television series, 24) revealed that Warner Bros. approached him about the possibility of playing Robin in Tim Burton's Batman.
"I'd just finished 'Stand By Me' and 'Young Guns' about the time that Warner Bros. were making the first 'Batman' film with Michael Keaton, and I got a call which asked me if I would be interested in playing Robin," Sutherland explained. "I was like: 'As in Robin with tights? No!'"
He went on to say: "I didn't realize they were going to make the coolest movie ever. They didn't have a Robin in the end, but I was only 19, so my agent could have helped me out a bit on that one."
