You want Eric Roberts in a movie? Just call him. Because seriously, look at his IMDB page—dude will take whatever comes his way and he's got about fifty kajillion projects on the go. He doesn't discriminate either. In the same year he popped up in "The Dark Knight" he also did a stint on "Entourage" and appeared in "Witless Protection" with Larry The Cable Guy. And yet even with all that, one part he's played seems to have flown safely under the radar. Yep, he's in Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice."

It's not really a surprise that Eric Roberts has signed to star in the horror sequel no one cares about (do they?) "The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)." After all, this is the guy who makes a movie more frequently than people take showers (seriously, look at his IMDb page) and has no quality barometer at all.

A few of years ago, fanboys got in a hullabaloo when Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" -- the box office smash and critical favorite which wound up on numerous top ten lists of 2008 -- missed out on Best Picture and Best Director nominations at the Oscars. Unofficially, the snub is seen as one of the major reasons the Academy expanded the field in the Best Picture category in 2009. But now that we have hindsight behind us, was "The Dark Knight" really one of the great movies of that year? Or just a supremely above average piece of popcorn entertainment? According to Eric Roberts, it's more than latter.
