“The Dead Zone” star Anthony Michael Hall revealed to LA Daily News that he has a role in Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight, currently filming for a July 18, 2008 release.
“I signed a confidentiality agreement, and I can’t say which part I’m playing because it affects the story,” said Hall. “I can’t give away the suspense – it’s a $200 million surprise, and I don’t want to be the guy to ruin it.”
He added, “I’m excited about it – Christian Bale back as Batman. Heath Ledger is joining the cast as the Joker. Of course, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine return, and they’re great.”
While he’s shooting the sixth season of the USA Network series, he was able to make it for the first day of production in London the weekend before last. He said he’s not scheduled to rejoin shooting until August, after “The Dead Zone” is wrapped.
“They’re shooting in London, Chicago and Hong Kong. My next dates are in Chicago, the third week of August with Morgan, then I get to go back to London.”
“It’s really a great role,” he added. “I’m in throughout the whole movie, and I’m really looking forward to working with Christian and Morgan and all these real Hollywood heavy hitters.”
