Maybe he really IS Batman

Batman West Eyes Dancing Show

13 August 2008 5:00 AM, PDT

Original Batman star Adam West is set for a stint as a contestant on hit U.S. talent show Dancing With The Stars.

West, who played the Caped Crusader in the 1960's Batman TV show, is one of the stars shortlisted for the popular show.

And despite being nearly 80, the veteran actor is still a frontrunning favourite to win the series' next season.

A source tells New York Gossip column PageSix, "Adam is in outstanding shape. He works out an hour a day and walks with his big dog on his farm in Sun Valley, Idaho."

A representative for West says, "(He is) not definite yet, but is one of the people they are seriously looking at. They will decide on everyone on Aug 25."

I guess the love of the limelight doesn't diminish with age just takes strange turns. I remember Jack Palance doing pushups at the Oscars.

I wonder if West will do the Batusi, I believe it was called. Travolta did the dance with Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction.
