Two of the 12 contestants on Season 2 of Big Brother: Celebrity Edition are real actors. They are Jonathan Bennett, who’s best known for his leading man role in Mean Girls opposite Lindsay Lohan (her momanger Dina Lohan is on this season of Celebrity Big Brother, too!), and Joey Lawrence, who’s been acting since he could walk and talk. Joey is best known for his TV sitcom roles on Melissa & Joey (with Melissa Joan Hart, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch) and Blossom as big brother Joey who coined the phrase “Whoa!” opposite Mayim Bialik (Amy on The Big Bang Theory).
But like most actors in the biz, Lawrence wants his shot at the big screen. And it’s coming! He’s playing pro-life attorney Robert Byrn in the forthcoming film Roe v. Wade with Oscar-winner Jon Voight as Chief Supreme Court Justice Warren E. Burger. The film is directed by Nick Loeb who is currently in a legal battle with his ex-fiancee Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara over the rights to their frozen embryos.
Now that Joey has a taste for working with Oscar-laden Voight, he’s shooting for the stars. Less than two weeks before the premiere of Big Brother: Celebrity Edition, Joey used social media to ask his fans (whom he calls “Angels”) to tell DC Comics and WB Pictures that he would make a great Batman in the next film. He uses the hashtag #jl4batman, too.
Angels!! I want this part! Let’s do this!! Been dreaming of saving #Gotham far back as my memory goes! Let dccomics and @wbpictures know!!!! #jl4batman #unexpected #dreamcometrue #blessed… https://t.co/vuL5TyhRwM

Think Joey has what it takes to become the next Batman? Keep in mind, past Batmans have included Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, George Clooney, Val Kilmer, Michael Keaton, and of course the late Adam West.
