Oh Hey, Thomas Lennon Is in Batman


The Dark Knight Rises seems like one of those serious movies, in which serious people talk gruffly about dire matters. Well, apparently there will be at least one scene of slight comic relief. Thomas Lennon plays a very smart alecky doctor who very sarcastically breaks news to his patients. I know Gotham is a cynical place with crime and inscensant gloom, but when a man has no cartilage in his knees, maybe pretend to be slightly saddened for him, even if he is super rich. He might be the doctor Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. (Yep, that is the second reference to that quote in as many days. There are no other Batman quotes other than that one and “I’m Batman.”) [Via]
