Batman Movie News : US Senator PATRICK LEAHY will make an appearance in The DARK KNIGHT
It's confirmed, long time Batman Fan Patrick Leahy will be making an appearance in the NEW Batman Movie THE DARK KNIGHT. Patrick Leahy is the Senior United States Senator from Vermont. He is a member of the Democratic Party, and is the current chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. A big fan of the Batman comics, he lent his voice in an episode of Batman: The Animated Series as a Governor in a western tale involving Ra's al Ghul & Jonah Hex. He also appeared as a cameo in the movie Batman and Robin during the Jungle Party Sequence. Senator Leahy wrote the foreward to the first volume of "The Dark Knight Archives," a hardcover reprinting of the first four issues of the Batman comic book. We think it's great that somebody so high-up in government is such a HUGE Batman Fan!!
