DEFEND THE DARK KNIGHT: Gary Oldman

I spoke with Gary Oldman about his role in the Dark Knight. Here’s a clip:

Gordon’s quiet way plays in contrast with the loud and intense personas of Batman and the Joker. For Oldman, that is part of the appeal. “You have to kind of get out of their way when you’re doing something like that and that’s the challenge. I kind of like that,” he said. Not playing one of the bolder characters also has added benefits. “I’ve played a lot of weird roles and I look at Heath being thrown around. Those noises, apart from the punches to the face, are the actual Heath hitting the wall and being thrown around in that room by Christian. Those are the real sounds. I watched that and thought ‘Oh, rather you than me.’”
