OK, this was so far out there that even we didn’t get behind it… but here it’s cleared up. Or not.

There was a theory that Oswald Cobblepot in Gotham, played superbly by Robin Lord Taylor, is actually… The Joker (yeah, we know, right?).

The theory was most popular during the brief period when Oswald was believed dead as this would leave his name up for grabs and potentially allow him to return as someone else. Which he didn’t. He returned as, em, Oswald.

Anyway MTV chatted to the actor about the theory to see what he thought about it and he seemed as perplexed as everyone else: “I find it incredibly unlikely, but at the same time, I have no idea what could happen.

“I get the scripts and I’ll read something, and I will be just as shocked as everyone else is when they see it happen onscreen.”

Watch the full interview below… and let’s put this craziness to bed once and for all. Until it turns out to be true and we all have red faces… #UnlikelyThough

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
