Gary Oldman thinks the Dark Knight is “Epic”

Gary Oldman has been doing the rounds for his new film. “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” and of course any smart reporter asks him for titbits on TDKR. MTV got a couple of choice quotes from Mr. Oldman:

“I think it was smart of Chris to go with a lesser-known villain rather than — because Heath’s performance, first of all, we love the Joker in Batman,” Oldman said. “Heath’s performance was so dazzling that you got to think, ‘How the hell do I top it?’ Instead of going for Riddler, instead of going for Penguin, he’s gone a slightly different way with the story.”
