I really want Sam Elliott to play Commissioner Gordon Sometime

He has the perfect mustache for the role of Commissioner Gordon, and thats 74% of the character right there! Look at this image and tell me he doesn’t look the role!!

I like Sam Elliot. I’d be down for him giving the role a go. Maybe in a high quality fan film.

He talks to slow to play Gordon, he does look the part though.

Holy crap that is PERFECT. I don’t know if we’ll see him as Gordon in live action any time soon, but maybe in animation?

In a similar vein, I always thought Tom Atkins would’ve made for an interesting Gordon. When I saw Night of the Creeps, I couldn’t help but think if you gave him glasses, he’d be a perfect Jimimage

I could buy this. My only exposure to Sam is from The Ranch, I think.

raises a Lebowski Style bottle of sarsapirilla in honor of this excellent suggestion

Sam Elliott’s inclusion in a DC production is long overdue.

Also: “Beef. It’s what’s for dinner.”

As much as I would love to see Sam as the Commissioner, I must agree with LexCorp. Not only does he talk slow but his southern accent is so strong he could never pull off Gordon’s big city cop accent!

Sam is old, so sometime is now

If Daniel Craig, Elijah Wood, and Daniel Radcliffe are willing to learn the American accent, I have no doubt a veteran actor can change to a New England city dialect.

gary Oldman and Christian bale were both british. and they didnt have a problem, plus jim Gordon was originally from Chicago, so he could work on that accent instead.

I think everyone is just so used to Sam Elliot’s deep southern voice, it would be awesome to see what he sounds like with a different accent. He totally looks the part for that role though!

Oh my gosh that would be perfect
