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.

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth. Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs. Shares the above with a beautiful, wonderful, and incredibly understanding wife named Frances (who, thankfully, participates in most of my silly hobbies) and a large furry dog named Brownie (who, sadly, does not).
