Hall Talks Dark Knight Shoot

Having shaken off his brat pack image thanks to the success of USA Network’s hit cable series “The Dead Zone,” Anthony Michael Hall has talked about one of his other roles – a supporting turn in the upcoming “Batman Begins” sequel “The Dark Knight.”

“I signed a confidentiality agreement, and I can’t say which part I’m playing because it affects the story…I can’t give away the suspense — it’s a $200 million surprise, and I don’t want to be the guy to ruin it” he tells Daily News. He adds though that “It’s really a great role. I’m in throughout the whole movie, and I’m really looking forward to working with Christian [Bale] and Morgan [Freeman].”

Hall is currently in the midst of shooting the sixth season of “The Dead Zone” and got a long weekend off work the weekend before last to shoot scenes over in London – “I felt like a rock star leaving the set, flying to London, going to shoot on a Saturday, you know? My crew really gave me a gift because they had to all vote union-wise to agree to not take a day’s pay to help me out. I felt very honored that they did that for me.”

The role is more than a one day shoot cameo though, once work on ‘Zone’ wraps in August he’ll rejoin the ‘Knight’ production – “They’re shooting in London, Chicago and Hong Kong. My next dates are in Chicago, the third week of August with Morgan, then I get to go back to London.”

As for the role? Early talk up at film ick indicates that, of all things, Hall will be potetinally playing a ‘Batman wannabe.’
