Interviews: Gary Oldman
Gary Oldman is back for his second turn as Lt. Jim Gordon in The Dark Knight and this time his character is given a lot more to do and when asked, Gary isn't afraid to admit he loved the expanded role. He also talks about how great it is working with director Chris Nolan, he gives heartfelt comments regarding Heath Ledger and lets us in a little bit on his future projects.
How was it stepping back into character, especially considering you were given so much more to do in this one?
Gary Oldman: Yeah, it was very nice of Chris Nolan to write me such a good part. It was great to come back because I really enjoyed working on the first one. I was just actually saying that [Chris] doesn't shout, he doesn't scream, I've never seen him be rude to anyone. He's really sort of a nice guy to be around, and you finish and you get home for dinner. You can put the kids to bed. He doesn't want to work for 17 hours... He's not a lunatic that wants to work, you know what I mean? [No] shouting and screaming at people.
