Give Eric Roberts credit for cracking a funny. In an interview with USA Weekend’s Brian Truitt, the veteran character actor told the reporter he had exclusive information on Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Batman 3 movie.
“I’m going to break this only to you: I am Batman next time.”
Considering Eric Roberts played mobster Salvatore Marone in Batman: The Dark Knight (2005), the likelihood of him replacing Christian Bale as Batman is slim-to-none.
You can see Roberts in the current Sylvester Stallone action movie The Expendables, which features just about anybody who has every played a part in an action film in the past 30 years.
Just don’t expect to see Roberts seeing action as Batman in Batman 3. That would truly be funny.
