    If you're interested, Weller was good as a sleazy cop on DEXTER a few seasons ago. And, of course, he played a racist bad guy on a couple episodes of ENTERPRISE.

    In the case of the Joker, as Myk points out, it's not really important to know. The question here is whether it's important to the story that we learn "who Harrison really is".

    If it's hinted in some way that "Harrison" is an alias, but it's not actually crucial that we learn for whom, then I'm fine with that bit of information remaining unrevealed at the end of the movie. A story can be more interesting when every last detail isn't explicitly spelled out.

    He was the bad guy on last week's episode of Hawaii Five-O, and he provides the voice of Batman in The Dark Knight Returns.

    I thought Weller was revealed to be Robert April.

    Nope. More speculation/wishful thinking/etc.

    Thanks. I know he's been in quite a bit of stuff. I just never happened upon any of them myself.

    RoboKhan: "Dead or alive, Old Friend, you're coming with me!"

    His prime directive: Do not interfere with alien cultures ... or OCP.

    He was also in one of the best episodes of Fringe, entitled 'White Tulip'.

    And starred in Manny Coto's short-lived Odyssey 5.

    Buckaroo Banzai. Turn in your nerd card if you've missed that one.

    Yes.
    Peter Weller has the distinction of having portrayed the eponymous character in TWO cult classic "sci-fi" movies: RoboCop and Buckaroo Banzai.

    It's amazing how many scifi fans haven't seen Weller in Screamers, a better than avg low budget movie loosely based on a Philip K. Dick story. Weller carries the movie which actually has some pretty scary killing machines that come in all shapes and sizes.

    Weller always gives me the creeps, but that's due to a childhood trauma.
    I was once a very naughty young boy that didn't listen to his parents and saw Robocop secretly. The scene where they shoot his hand off and then shoot him almost to death haunted me for years.:scream::lol:

    There's a lesson to be learned there!

    Weller is naturally creepy though. It's part of his awesomeness.

    Last I saw Weller was in the recent Hawaii 5-0 episode he was in. His mecha hands there didn't help with the creepy factor.

    I can't believe I forgot that! Screamers was fun. Unfortunately the sequel wasn't.

    I once had to do a midnight horror reading at a convention while ROBOCOP was playing (loudly) one room over.

    You try competing in volume with ROBOCOP! :)
