The Riddler Dies

FRANK GORSHIN, the man behind BATMAN foe THE RIDDLER's mask, has died at a medical centre in Burbank, California. He was 72.

The actor and impressionist was EMMY nominated for his villainous role in the cult Batman TV series from 1966 to 1969.

Gorshin earned another Emmy nomination for a guest appearance on another cult show, STAR TREK, and won theatrical acclaim in 2002 by portraying late comedian GEORGE BURNS on Broadway, New York, in bittersweet one-man show SAY GOODNIGHT GRACIE.

Gorshin's final performance was in an upcoming episode of CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION.
