Cory Michael Smith
Cast as Edward Nygma in the Fox series "Gotham."
Claimed he "spent a small fortune" of his own money purchasing a ton of DC Comics issues to better develop his character once being cast as the Riddler on "Gotham." - from ComicsBlend, Sept. 15, 2014
Had never seen, and refused to watch, "Batman Forever," in which Jim Carrey plays The Riddler/Edward Nygma.
