Eric Roberts Rides with "The Dark Knight"

Dark Knight, The picture


Eric Roberts reportedly is going to portray a Mafia kingpin in "The Dark Knight."

Nabbing what looks like to be a villainous role, Eric Roberts has signed on to play a Mafia kingpin in the highly-anticipated "The Dark Knight" and will join the production June this year, LA Daily News has revealed.

Roberts, nominated for an Oscar back in 1985 for his performance in "Runaway Train", has been rather busy lately in maintaining his career, already taking no less than seven big screen projects while making appearance on NBC's hit series "Heroes" as Thompson, an associate of Mr. "Horn-Rimmed Glasses" Bennet.

"I don't stop working. I'm a workaholic," so he told the site. "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."

Currently being filmed in Chicago, "Knight" is the second installment in the revitalized "Batman" franchise which first took form in 2005's "Batman Begins." Warner Bros. has set a tentative release date of July 18, 2008 in the U.S. and July 25 in the U.K..
