Tommy Bates: Who says I'm too drunk to fight? Stand up and I'll show ya!

Cesar Romero Facts
Has never worked directly with George Clooney, but Clooney has starred in two remakes of movies Romero was in. Romero played the Joker in "Batman" (1966), and Clooney played Batman in Batman & Robin (1997). Romero also appeared in the original Ocean's Eleven (1960), the remake of which--Ocean's Eleven (2001)--starred Clooney.

At 6'2" he was the tallest actor to have played the Joker in a (non-fan-made) live-action Batman production. Heath Ledger was six-foot-one and Jack Nicholson was nearly five-foot-ten.

Refused to shave off his mustache when he played the role of The Joker in "Batman" (1966). Close observation shows how the white clown make-up was applied right over his much loved mustache.
