Speedman was up for Robin role opposite Clooney

The hunk was considering acting as a career when he paid a dollar to talk politics on TV network MuchMusic’s Speaker’s Corner segment – and his looks and confidence landed him an agent.

He recalls, “She called me and asked me to audition for Batman & Robin for the Robin role… I didn’t get it but it got me an agent.

“I wasn’t ready to do that.”

Chris O’Donnell eventually landed the role in the 1997 movie.
