I am a HUGE
fan of Gary Oldman!
I know I’ve told the story before here on BOF about running into him during the press junket for THE DARK KNIGHT before, right? Whatever, I’ll tall y’all again!
After a typical “round table interview” with Gary, I walked out of the room and found him sitting there by himself, chilling. My wife said to me, “Go ask to take a picture with him!” “I’m not going to do that,” I said, “But I AM going to visit with him.”
So I stuck my hand out and said, “Hey Mr. Oldman. I’m Bill from BATMAN ON FILM. I LOVED your speech at the end of the film. As a lifelong Batman fan, it damn near made my cry.”
He stood up and shook my hand and said “Thank.” I then asked him, “What was your favorite scene?” And without hesitation, he told me it was the meeting between Gordon and Dent in the D.A.’s office.
We then had an uncomfortable moment due to me grabbing him in my arms and giving him a big ‘ol Texas hug!
OK, I’m making that last part up, but the rest is legit. Anyway, here’s Mr. Oldman, via my good friends at MTV.COM (for his upcoming role in RED RIDING HOOD), talking a bit about THE DARK KNIGHT RISES…
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES hits theaters on JULY 20, 2012!
