Hulme Relieved He's Not The Joker18 September 2006
Many internet sites suggested Hulme was the front-runner to land Batman's arch-foe in the new film, but he has always been keen to play down the hype.
Speaking to Batman-On-Film.com over the weekend - one of the websites where rabid fans speculated Hulme was to play The Joker - he says, "The media have been chasing me around asking for a quote, which I couldn't give.
"Every other weekend down here (in Australia), there would be some blurb or column in the papers talking about how I was the 'front-runner' or some s**t.
"Thank God Heath got the gig, 'cause now the press can all f**k off. But the internet speculation has been extraordinary. Unbelievable."
