|Tall Joker Goon|
|Characteristics:|| Gender - Male|
Hair - Brown
|Portrayed by:||Richard Strange|
That Goon was tall and had a scar on the right side of his lips; he liked to wear a flat, beret-like cap. He was first seen when the Joker killed Antoine Rotelli. He was seen several times at the Flugelheim Museum before Batman rescued Vicki Vale. He and the gang gave chase to Batman and Vicki, along with Bob. They all shot Batman but there was no blood. Before they decided to take his mask off, Vicki took their pictures, and after Batman woke up, Batman punched him, and sent him through the air over the Joker Goon Car.
Along with five other Joker goons, he disguised himself as a street mime in order to sneak up on Vinnie Ricorso's bodyguards and shoot them after the Joker stabbed Ricorso in the throat with a quill pen. His mime makeup included comically frowning red lips in contrast to the Joker's huge red smile. When a getaway car arrived to pick up the Joker and his mimes, the Tall Mime pointed a pistol at the news reporters who had witnessed Ricorso's assassination, warning them to stay back; he then climbed into the back seat, next to the Joker. Bruce Wayne, recognizing the Joker as Jack Napier, angrily ran toward the car, but the car took off down the street just as Wayne reached it. The Tall Mime was last seen shaking his head mockingly at Wayne as the car started.
Some goons in the Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, MS DOS, MSX, ZX Spectrum and Amiga video game adaptions of the Batman film were based off Strange's character, who threw at Batman. That character appeared in the Gotham Cathedral Level.
Behind The ScenesEdit
- The role of the Tall Joker Goon was played by Richard Strange, an English actor who affected an American accent for the part. (He speaks two lines: "Get back!" and "What is that?")
