I haven’t seen the new Batman movie yet, The Dark Knight. But, I just read that Senator Patrick Leahy has a brief part in the film and commented on it on The Hill Blog today:
This, more than any earlier film, explores the psychotic nature of the Joker, but also the psychological conflicts in the Batman. It was brilliantly filmed, and Heath Ledger’s performance was so good that it shows us what great potential there was in an actor who died much too young.
Here’s the clip of Leahy with the Joker, deceased actor Heath Ledger, in The Dark Knight (you might not want to watch it if you haven’t seen the movie):
The Hill Blog noted a few days ago that “Leahy also had a part in an earlier Batman movie and was the voice of a governor in the episode of “Batman: The Animated Series.””
“The Dark Knight” rocketed the Batman film franchise into the superhero stratosphere as it nabbed the highest weekend opening ever in grossing an official $158.3 million — even more than Sunday’s estimate of $155.3 million.
Have you seen The Dark Knight yet?
