Gary Oldman, along with the rest of the cast of the upcoming giant The Dark Knight Rises, are deep into the promotional tour for the film which is set to explode on July 20th. On his own leg of the press tour, Oldman passed by Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! the other night, and Kimmel convinced Gary to read an excerpt from R. Kelly’s new memoir SOULACOASTER: The Diary Of Me (you can read an excerpt at RollingStone.com). Needless to say, Gary has enough brilliance inside him he could recite pages from any of Ann Coulter’s books and he’d still be amazing. And if that whets your appetite for Gary Oldman, you absolutely must check out his interview with Charlie Rose from earlier this year. Listening to this guy talk about acting is borderline thrilling:”Watch The 2012 Charlie Rose Oscar Roundtable Featuring Brad Pitt, Rooney Mara, Gary Oldman & More“. And in case you’ve been locked in R. Kelly’s basement for the past several months and are just escaping now, I’ve attached the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises below.
