Billy Dee Williams played district attorney Harvey Dent in Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989. Now, 27 years later, he’ll play the character’s other side of the coin.
The Star Wars hero will voice Two-Face in the upcoming animated project The LEGO Batman Movie, director Chris McKay confirmed on Twitter on Wednesday.
Two-Face makes his first appearance in 1995’s Batman Forever. The franchise switched directors (from Burton to Joel Schumacher) and picked up a new actor to play the villainous side of Harvey Dent: Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones. Aaron Eckhart played both Dent and Two-Face in 2008’s The Dark Knight.
Reps for Williams did not immediately respond to EW’s request for further comment.
The LEGO Batman Movie boasts voice acting from Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Zach Galifianakis, and Ralph Fiennes. It opens February 2017.
