Ed Westwick's Batman dream

October 10th, 2010

Ed Westwick wants to be Batman.

The 'Gossip Girl' actor admits his ideal role would be playing the Caped Crusader - who is currently portrayed on the big screen by Christian Bale - because he was his childhood hero.

Ed said: "It would be a dream come true to play Batman in a big blockbuster movie. He was my childhood superhero.

"He's a damn good fighter and has access to amazing gadgets, such as the utility belt and, of course, the Batmobile - I'd give my left arm just to sit in it."

The 23-year-old star also spoke about his fledgling music career, admitting he had to leave his beloved band because his acting commitments were too great.

He added: "I had my own band, The Filthy Youth, but I left the, over a year ago because I found it difficult to juggle music with my filming commitments."
