Williams originally took the role with the agreement that it would land him in a sequel playing the villain Two Face, but the studio did not use him when the time came for the third installment, Batman Forever. In between, Williams has appeared in supporting roles in a number of films.

Williams is also well-known for his appearance in advertisements for Colt 45, a low-cost brand of malt liquor. Currently, Williams is part of the large star-studded cast assembled for the latest installment in EA Games’s acclaimed Command & Conquer computer game series, and is quoted on the official site as saying “This is the most fun I’ve had since Star Wars”.

In 1961, he recorded a jazz LP — currently out of print — for Prestige Records entitled Let’s Misbehave, featuring Williams singing swing standards.
