Exclusive: Clancy Brown On Being Lex Luthor in ‘Superman/Batman: Public Enemies’

Picture 1All week we’ve been bringing you an exclusive interview each day with a member of the cast or crew from the upcoming DC Animated DVD Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. From screenwriter Stan Berkowitz to art director Michael Goguen to casting director Andrea Romano and even the voice of Batman, Kevin Conroy. Today, we’ve decided to save a great one for last.

Clancy Brown is both fortunate and unfortunate enough to be recognized by face and voice in TV and film. Fortunate because he’s had enough consistent work since starting acting in 1983, and unfortunate because just about every one of those roles casts him as the bad guy.

From The Kurgen in Highlander to Brother Crowe in Carniv√°le to Mr. Crabs in Spongebob Squarepants and of course, Lex Luthor in just about every DC Animated production. Check out our interview with Clancy below where he discusses the hardships of always being the bad guy, to his thoughts on other Lex’s, and even who he originally read for back in his first audition for Superman: The Animated Series.

Check back in with us next week for final coverage of Superman/Batman: Public Enemies and our review of the DVD, which hit’s stores nationwide Tuesday, September 29th.

    He has such a great slippery Lex Luthor voice!

    While not 100% original, it did not need to be. It was well made and a lot of fun. It had to be the biggest single collection of DC comics heroes and villains since Crisis on Infinite Earths!

    Here is my take on it with a little humor and LOTS o’ pics of you are interested.
