Sen. Patrick Leahy Lands Dark Knight Role

CNN reports that Sen. Patrick Leahy has landed his third Batman-related role:

Vermont’s senior senator has landed a speaking role in the newest Batman movie, CNN affiliate WPTZ reports and confirmed by Leahy’s office.

Leahy is apparently a big comic book enthusiast, and actually served as an extra in the 1997 Batman installment: Batman and Robin.

The senator told the station he can’t reveal the exact details of his role in the upcoming movie, but he did say he has landed a scene with its two stars, Christian Bale and Heath Ledger.

He also provided a voice for an episode of “Batman: The Animated Series” playing himself.
