Sam Rockwell cast as Batman. Does this mean Christian Bale is out?

Ok, this is weird. A couple of months ago I was at this little karaoke bar in Santa Monica and those two guys were in there together and I was like, hey maybe they're doing a project together. Little did I know they were working on something this great!

Oh, and Grover is in it, too!

That was hilarious, thanks.

Oddly enough, this link crashes IE, Firefox and Opera for me. Anyone have a direct link to the Quicktime movie?

Yeah, it's from last year.

That woman looks really familiar.

And had I known they were going to have credits...

I remember her from The Wire.

Oddly enough it doesn't crash my Opera. This was funny.

That was freakin' awesome. i love it when actors put their egos aside and just do something because it funny.

As an aside, i would love for them to do a couple more shorts. Stuff like this, where The Bat-Man and Robin were just sitting around doing really mundane things.

Sorta like the live action Tick, where most of it was superheros just sitting around a cafe and bullshitting with each other.

Bravo Robot Johnny!

That was good. The tick pretty much covered that ground already though.

I was sure from the title that this wasn a link about Entourage. It wasn'! though! Good link man dude.

this site consistently crashes my firefox v1.5.

Sam Rockwell is the man! A few years back he also did a short with Stella. Here's a link to the short (it's Flash and probably NSFW due to language and stuff).

That was better than what I was prepared for.

seemed to me to be Zaphod Bebblebrox again. Although I loved Justin Long as Warren on ED.

After I got over the instant panic that the headline caused I laughed my ass off.

(Please God, if you care at all about Batfans, from here on out keep the same actors for the rest of the franchise, same director, same writers, please don't let those fools screw this up again. In Bruce Wayne's name I pray, amen.)
