Mark Hamill is well-known for his portrayal as the Joker beginning with Batman: The Animated Series, but now Tim Curry has confirmed rumors that he was the original choice for the role and even recorded lines before becoming ill and being let go.

"I did play Joker for a while, but I had bronchitis and they fired me – and hired Mark Hamill," Curry told ScreenGeek. "That’s life."

Curry went on to voice an unnamed henchman in Batman: TAS, Mutro Botho in Batman Beyond, and G. Gordon Goffrey in Young Justice.
