Two Degrees of Separation From Batman (Yes... Batman)

Went and saw The Dark Knight today. Despite nearly being too long, it was an excellent comic book movie. Full of memorable scenes, a strong story and a great performance by Heath Ledger. (Any reservations I'd had about him having been miscast were quickly dispelled.)

But the highlight for me was in the credits where, pretty much smack in the middle of the list of stuntmen was the name of my friend, former co-worker and my very first Doc Brown counterpart, Chris Nolte.

Here's a picture of us from my first week in Japan:

Like looking in a mirror.

Notice how the only thing we have in common is how much neither of us look like Christopher Lloyd.

Chris was also in the first Batman film so I was thrilled to see he'd made it back on the set for the second one. There are some cool pictures of his experience (and all of his hairstyles) on his MySpace page.

Congratulations, Chris!
