Senator Patrick Leahy has a role in the new Batman movie. He’s no movie star. He’s a star in my book though.
Leahy is donation all the money made from his part in the Dark Knight to his childhood haunt, the Kellogg-Hubbard Library in Montpelier, VT. At four years old, Leahy got his first library card at that branch. He considers it one of the biggest moments of his life and wants other kids to have the same experience. The money will help fund the children’s section.
In addition to the money he earned from the movie, various fund raisers have been held with special screenings of the film. All proceeds go to the library.
