Ralph Fiennes lands Lego Batman movie role

Los Angeles - Ralph Fiennes is to voice the part of Alfred in Lego Batman Movie.

The 52-year-old actor can currently be seen starring as M opposite Daniel Craig in the new Bond movie Spectre, but Ralph is reportedly set to become the loyal servant of another iconic character, Batman.

The award-winning performer has been cast alongside the likes of Will Arnett, Michael Cera and Rosario Dawson in the much-anticipated new movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Zach Galifianakis, meanwhile, is reportedly in negotiations to play the Joker.

News of Ralph's casting comes shortly after he praised Spectre for being relevant to the modern world, although he admitted the Sam Mendes-directed movie doesn't stand up to closer scrutiny.

Ralph shared: "I do like the fact Sam has tried to root it in something real and relevant, but it doesn't bear very meticulous inspection. I like the principle.

"And it felt like quite a good line to say; that a licence to kill is also a licence not to kill. But the Bond films work on dialogue that you buy into at the moment because the real world is much more complex."
