The New York Times has profiled actor Kevin Conroy, one of the definitive voice actors for Batman since the days of Batman: The Animated Series and who has played the role longer than any other actor before or since. The article focuses on his reprisal of Batman for Batman: The Killing Joke, the new direct-to-video animated feature adapting Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s graphic novel that tells the potential origin story of the Joker, interlinked with the Joker’s latest horrifically insane plot involving Commissioner Jim Gordon and his daughter Barbara (a.k.a. Batgirl). The article digs into darkness in Mr. Conroy’s own past history, as well as his thoughts on reprising the role again for this movie and for the upcoming series Justice League Action (where, as in The Killing Joke, he will be playing opposite Mark Hamill as the Joker, who is also reprising his Batman: The Animated Series role).
Accompanying the article is a brief feature on Mr. Conroy’s most memorable performances as Batman.
