However, Philip denied the claims."No one has talked to me about it - never, It happened, like, five years ago, too. It's a rumour back then and it''s still a rumour," the New York Daily News quoted the actor, as telling MTV.
"I'm more a fan, so the interest of being in it isn't that great, it's more the interest in wanting to see the next one. It's probably better that way ... I don't know if I'd make a good Penguin, to be quite honest," he added.
Like Hoffman, Johnny Depp has also denied being offered the role.
