Eric Roberts is going to be starring in the new Batman movie alongside Christian Bale according to LA Daily News

Eric Roberts has just been set to play a Mafia kingpin in Christopher Nolan’s latest Christian Bale “Batman” movie, “The Dark Knight,” joining the production in June. It’s the latest in an especially bountiful current crop of assignments for Roberts, including his ongoing series roles on “Heroes” and “The L Word,” and his June Hallmark Channel presentation, “Pandemic,” with Faye Dunaway.

“I don’t stop working. I’m a workaholic. I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I’m too overexposed to ever be a superstar, so I’m happy to be a working actor every day,” explains the actor also known as rising star Emma Roberts’ dad, and superstar Julia’s brother.

Referring to his unrequited 1985 Academy Award nomination for “Runaway Train” (Don Ameche won for “Cocoon”), Roberts goes on lightly. “Once they gave my Oscar to the wrong person, I called my agent and said, ‘From now on if there’s one good thing about a project, I’ll do it.’ If the character is good, I’ll do it. If the director is good, I’ll do it. If the location is good, I’ll do it.”
