The actor, who played the caped crusader in the '60s TV series, suggested that he could play the dad of current incarnation Christian Bale.
He told the Den Of Geek website: "Well I’d love to. I like Christian Bale. I’ve heard he’s a big fan of mine, but I certainly reciprocate.
"I think he’s really very good. I’d love to play his father. The older Batman comes out of the woodwork, when times get really tough…maybe a few tips here and there."
West, 79, currently voices an alternative version of himself in animated comedy show Family Guy.
