Apparently turned down the role of the Tooth Fairy in Roter Drache (2002) (most probably offered to him after his frightening appearance as psycho gangster in Gangster No. 1 (2000)) in favour of a much more poorly paid role in Lars von Trier's Dogville (2003).

Writer/director Brian Helgeland wrote the role of Chaucer in A Knight's Tale (2001) specifically for Paul. He "refused" to do the movie without him. The production companies did not think Bettany was known well enough, Helgeland thought that if he backed down on his choice of Bettany, he would have to back down on everything else.

Has acted in several religion-themed movies or played the part of a religious character, including: Priest (2011) and The Reckoning (2002) where he plays Priests who question their faith and go off on their own tangent; Legion (2010) where he plays the Archangel Michael who also questions his moral fibre and risks disobedience to God to do what he feels is right; and The Da Vinci Code (2006) where he plays an obsessive Monk who will do all he can to protect the secrets of Christianity.

Kirsten Dunst, Paul Bettany, and Jon Favreau in Wimbledon - Spiel, etc.

In February 2014 it was announced that Bettany would be playing Vision in Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). This marks not only his first on screen appearance in a Marvel movie but he will also be playing a dual role since he will also be voicing 'Jarvis' Tony Stark/Iron Man's cyber man servant a role he has played four times previously.
