"The Dark Knight" comes out in a few hours, and a record number of midnight screenings are sold out throughout the country. While the younger stars of the film including Christian Bale and the late Heath Ledger, have been getting tons of press, the stories of the more seasoned actors often don't get as much spotlight. Luckily, this has not been the case with "The Dark Knight."
Checkout these great interviews with Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Gary Oldman (who in my opinion put in one of the best yet subtle performances in the film). Caine's Alfred the Butler and Freeman's CEO Lucius Fox characters in different ways act as surrogate fathers to Bale's Bruce Wayne, and Gary Oldman's police lieutenant Gordon serves as a beacon of honesty and light to Batman. These interviews are great, and all 3 gentlemen have some really funny stories from their respective careers to share:
