Some of his other notable film roles include Jim Morrison in The Doors (1991), armed robber Chris Shiherlis in Heat (1995), Bruce Wayne / Batman in Batman Forever (1995), Simon Templar in The Saint (1997), and Moses in The Prince of Egypt (1998).
In 1983 he appeared off Broadway in The Slab Boys with Kevin Bacon and Sean Penn.
After several delays, director Oliver Stone finally started production on the film The Doors, based on the band of the same name.
Kilmer spoke with Oliver Stone early on, concerned about what he might want to do with the story because Kilmer did not believe in or want to promote substance abuse.
Kilmer memorized the lyrics to all of lead singer Jim Morrison's songs prior to his audition, and sent a video of himself performing some Doors songs to director Stone.
Stone was not impressed with the tape, but Paul Rothchild (the original producer of The Doors) said "I was shaken by it" and suggested they record Kilmer in the studio.
Kilmer looked forward to the title role as a change toward a more fun, less serious action thriller, while enjoying the "master of disguise" chameleon characters like a mad artist, a nerdy British scientist, a cleaner, and a Russian mob boss. In 1998, he voiced Moses in the animated film The Prince of Egypt, before starring in the independent film Joe the King (1999).
Also in 1999, he played a blind man in the drama/romance At First Sight, which he described as being, of then, the hardest role he had ever had. That same year, he had a supporting role in the film Pollock and hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time.
George Clooney replaced Kilmer as Batman in 1997's Batman & Robin.There were also reports that Kilmer had not had a good working relationship with Schumacher, as another reason for not reprising the role. That year, Kilmer starred alongside Michael Douglas in the thriller The Ghost and the Darkness.In 1997 he played Simon Templar in the popular action film, The Saint.That same year, his first off-stage acting role (excluding television commercials) came in the form of an episode of ABC Afterschool Special called One Too Many, which was an educational drama on drinking and driving; it also starred a young Michelle Pfeiffer.Also in 1983, Kilmer self-published a collection of his own poetry entitled My Edens After Burns, that included poems inspired by his time with Pfeiffer.
