Fact of the Day: Senator Batman

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) may be a high-ranking member of the United States Senate, but he's also a huge Batman fan. He's been given cameo appearances in Batman: The Animated Series, the 1997 film Batman and Robin, the 2008 film The Dark Knight, and the 2012 film The Dark Knight Rises. His most notable role of the four is in The Dark Knight as he plays the gentleman that stands up to the Joker when he demands the location of Harvey Dent.

  3. I wonder if he evoked his battle with the political opposition in his performance when he stood up to The Joker.

  4. Seeing that he's a huge fan, he must be thrilled about this.

  10. Some successful actors/actress too become politicians at a later stage of their career. I love the batman tho, and can't wait for the next movie.
