I really like him and I will miss him as this character but I love just about anything he does and I know I will see him in something else really soon. I plan on seeing Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy for looks like a good spy thriller drama and that type of movie never gets old to me.

Gary Oldman is a great and under-appreciated actor. He haven't had that many leading roles, but he always brings something different to all his roles no matter how big. He was perfect as Gordon...

I think Steve Buscemi rocked it in a mustache on SNL.
