JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE NEW FRONTIER'S JEREMY SISTO

Following popular turns by Kevin Conroy and Rino Romano, Jeremy Sisto is the latest actor to provide the voice of Batman in animation.

Sisto, currently starring in NBC's Law & Order, is a member of the cast of Justice League: The New Frontier, the direct-to-DVD movie being released on Feb. 26.

"I tend to (get cast) as dark characters, and I'm more drawn to those characters anyway -- they're usually more interesting," Sisto said. "Plus, I got this deep voice from my father, and the combination of the timbre of my voice and my inflections tends to make people feel that there's some darkness there."

Sisto said that the character arc of Batman in New Frontier gave the role flavor.

"I think Batman is a great character in that he has a lot of internalization, and his heroics come from a dark place," Sisto said. "You can have fun with that side of him, sort of showing his dislike for people and yet, at the same time, he's all about helping people and doing good for society.

"Batman is a bit of a loner. He's very intuitive and, while the rest of the Justice League are using their super powers, he uses his detective skills to get to the heart of the matter and, in this case, help save the world. Throughout the course of the story, though, I think he learns that it's not such a bad thing to have friends."

Sisto -- whose previous animation credits include American Dad, Duckman and The Wild Thornberrys -- was unable to be part of the ensemble recordings and voiced his role in New York.

"When you're doing a voice for an animated project, you don't have the props and the different visual things that make it a bit easier for an actor to make a scene real for you," he said. "So you're stuck in a booth alone and you're kind of forced to use your imagination a little bit more."
