It appears that The Lego Batman Movie has found its Commissioner Gordon. Black Reel Award nominated actress Mariah Carey is in talks to voice the role of the famed Gotham crime fighter in the spinoff of The Lego Movie.
While everyone is trying to keep the news hush-hush, sources say that Carey will join Ralph Fiennes (Alfred the Butler), Will Arnett (Batman), Michael Cera (Robin), Rosario Dawson (Batgirl) and Zach Galifianakis (The Joker). Not sure if Commissioner Gordon will sing, but it’s nice to know the character can, if called on.
Earlier this year, Carey attached herself to a Christmas-themed movie pitch that was bought by New Line.
The studio is currently working on it and Carey will star in the yuletide-themed film. Carey wrote and performed “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” a 1994 tune that has sold more than 14 million copies globally to become the biggest holiday perennial in recent memory and the biggest international hit of Carey’s career.
Her past screen credits include the Lee Daniels-directed Precious.
