Lost star joins Batman

05.17.2007

No, Jorge Garcia won't be starring as Clayface in THE DARK KNIGHT but another cast member of "Lost" will join the new Batman film. Nestor Carbonell, now playing the mysterious Richard Alpert on the hit ABC show, has signed on to play the mayor of Gotham City in KNIGHT. I'd love to talk more about Carbonell and how he, and his character, are part of what has made this season of "Lost" so exciting but everytime I post something about the show, I get a million "dude you ruined it for me!!" e-mails. I recently posted about how Ian Somerholder was a former star of "Lost" and someone bitched me out for it. That was three years ago!! The spoiler statute of limitations has to be at least one year. Beyond that, you're on your own. Carbonell also has a series "Cane" that was just picked up by CBS for its fall schedule. Filming on KNIGHT is currently underway in Chicago.

hahaha yeah, he in fact should appear AS Batmanuel in the Dark Night... like a sort of bizzaro Batman. I dont care much for the actor or his inclusion, but he has been one of those "hey its that guy" and Ive remember him since Suddenly Susan (best sitcom ever)

DAVID BANNER

I just read that rapper David Banner auditioned for the role of a villian character named Gamble who has ties with The Joker. I hope he doesn't get that role. Honestly. It just lowers the bar for the caliber of actor Nolan would work with.I hear he's a comic fan but who cares?

Herm...

While I love the addition of such a great actor (BATMANUEL LIVES!) I can't help but wish he would have been cast in a villain role. He'd make a great villain. If they're going for a corrupt mayor, then I guess that'll do.

PS. The tick owns your ass.

WOW

It's been a long time since Ian Somerhalder was on Lost. You can't really expect to avoid that spoiler at this point.

LOL, I didn't know he was the Latino assassin in Smokin' Aces. I thought he was one the best parts of the movie (so freakin' bad-ass!)

I think the guy looks a little like Anthony Perkins, at least in that photo.

So they're getting a Ralph Fiennes look-a-like? Why didn't they just got with the original? I kid. Great addition to an already great cast. I'm just hoping most, if not all (don't really care about Katie Holmes' character) of the original cast will be returning.
