So that's why Chris O'Donnell's career has stalled: it's all George's fault!

George Clooney - George Clooney's Batman Flop Cost Chris O'donnell A Robin Spin-Off

13 September 2012

Actor Chris O'Donnell's brush with George Clooney's Batman cost him a lucrative movie franchise deal as the Caped Crusader's sidekick Robin.

As movie insiders discuss the merits of The Dark Knight Rises' Robin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, landing his own spin-off, O'Donnell has revealed he was briefly in talks to lead a series of films as the character after Batman & Robin.

The actor played Dick Grayson's alter-ego opposite Clooney and Val Kilmer's Batman/Bruce Wayne in the film and its 1995 predecessor Batman Forever, but the 1997 movie was such a flop producers opted to scrap the idea of a Robin project.

O'Donnell tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live, "They were gonna do one back in the day and then the second one (film) we did was such a bomb they were like, 'Scrap that!' That was the end of that."

But the actor kept his Robin uniform just in case.

He adds, "I still have it in my basement... I don't break it out... It's bolted in there."

Anyone else wonder what uniforms George keeps in his basement 'just in case'? Wink

Is this the same Chris O'Donnell that I heard is a self centered ass and difficult to work with? Or am I getting him confused with some other Hollywood "don't you know who I am Jeremy Piven-like" actor?
