Senator Patrick Leahy is renewing his fascination with the Caped Crusader by appearing in a scene in the next Batman movie.
The movie "The Dark Knight Rises" will get its first public showing in Vermont.
Leahy says he learned recently that he will appear in a brief scene with Christian Bale, who plays Batman, and Morgan Freeman.
"I am emphatic in my role and it will be
a speaking role. Try not to blink during that part," Leahy said.
The movie will be screened July 15th in Williston ahead of the movie's July 20th U.S. premiere.
Leahy also appeared in "The Dark Knight" in 2007.
The Vermont showing will benefit the children's library at Montpelier's Kellogg-Hubbard Library and the Echo at the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain in Burlington.
