The Man In The High Castle star (and voice of Batman in DC’s animated film series) discusses his hypothetical last day on Earth…
How do you want to leave this world?
Either peacefully with my family or something badass like burning up on re-entry or whatever.
Do you have any deathbed confessions?
That kid’s comic book that was stolen in sixth grade and everyone got in trouble? It was me.
What’s your last meal?
Both my parents make a mean roast – so, roast beef and gravy with roast potatoes. An Irishman who likes potatoes. Shocker!
How would Batman fare in the apocalypse?
Batman would dominate the apocalypse right up until his gadgets run out of batteries.
What do you know now that you didn’t at 18?
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Other than being the best father I can be to my son, probably that I’ve been sober since the age of 22.
To whom on earth do you owe an apology?
That kid I stole the comic book from.
Who was your favourite co-star during your time on Earth?
They were all great but honestly I prefer working with children and animals.
What are your friends saying over your casket?
I plan to outlive them all.
What’s written on your tombstone?
I was never much of a singer or dancer, so probably something like “Here Lies Jason O’Mara. Single Threat.”
What or who would you like to be reincarnated as?
I don’t want to come back. When it’s time to go, it’s time to go. I’ll be ready.
Got any last words?
“Wait! I’m not ready.”
