This used to be an article about that dude from the 70s Show possibly being the next Batman.

Batman has always been my #1 favorite superhero. First BATMAN & ROBIN with bat nipples and now this? GOOD LORD!  
At least Christopher Nolan is still set to direct it. But can we get a new Bruce Wayne please? How about Joey Lawrence or the kid from Growing Pains while we're at it? What are these fools thinking...

I tend to agree with the last paragraph. While my initial reaction was to find a razor blade and slit my wrists, it is possible (though unlikely) that he could pull it off. We have no data as to his dramatic acting ability, so you would have to keep an open mind. But one problem is he's definitely too skinny to be a convincing superhero. Still, like the article says, he's kind of an "it" guy in Hollywood right now and his name is used with all kinds of projects that he won't end up being involved in.

I give Micheal Keaton credit for doing a pretty good job as Batman. He's obviously a very decent actor. Still, I thought Keaton still wasn't right for the job and I wasn't satisfied with the outcome. I was biased and kept thinking Mr. Mom was running around in a Bat suit. If Kutcher plays Batman I'm going to have to insist Red Forman is the bad guy. That will be the only way it will be worth a dried turd.

I agree with the Bone, Keaton did do a good job however I too do not think he was perfect for the role. At this point I don't see Kutcher as being right for the job ( call it a lack of imagination) and I hope his playing Batman doesn't come to fruition. Plus if he is the it guy in Hollywood where does that leave Fez?

I maintain that had the appropriate script and level of seriousness been kept on the set, Clooney could have been a good Batman. I think he has the acting chops to pull it off. But at this point, I would prefer returning to the roots which necessitates a younger man playing the role.

I thought that Val Kilmer did a reasonably good job as well. Again the script while not as bad as Batman and Robin was still not up to snuff. I would also like to see a younger Batman just not played by a lanky goofy ass dude where's my cowl Kutcher.

You know, I would give Kutcher a miniscule chance at legit acting, because how many times are good actors just typecast (willingly or not)? Look at Adam Sandler: If you've seen Punch-Drunk Love, you know that, given a decent script and character to play, he's not that bad - pretty good, actually. Problem is, he's become a billionaire playing a doofus, so why fuck with the formula? I read that Kutcher is going to be in the next M. Night Shymalan movie (also Kirsten Dunst), so we'll see if he can break out of the dumbass-character shell.  
(As a side note, not that I'm into celebrity gossip or any such bullshit, but is anyone else disturbed that Kutcher is dating Demi Moore?)  
As for who would make a good Batman, how about Colin Farrell? Young, edgy, considerable talent. Guy Pearce would be sweet (he was rumored for the role a while back). Jared Leto?

Both of them have been talked about for quite a while - in fact Farrell was in talks to be Batman for a since-scrapped Batman/Superman (aka World's Finest) movie. The industry is way ahead of you, Swerbie...

I do find it mildly disturbing that Demi Moor is dating Kutcher not that I rank it on the order of pederasty or anything. She is 41 and he is 25 which isn't as big an age difference as when I was 21 skrewing a 42 year old. So it's a little strange but not as bad as buggering a boy needless to say.

Yeah, that was a good article. It's hard to recapture the magic of the original.
