George Miller may still be upset that Australia isn't offering the tax rebate to Justice League: Mortal, but that doesn't seem to be keeping the movie from proceeding with casting news. In an article that retreads Miller's complaints about the Australian government, dropped the tantalizing news that Heroes star Stephen Tobolowsky is reportedly in negotiations to play Batman's butler Alfred Pennyworth.

Tobolowsky plays the role of Bob Bishop on Heroes. The possible head of The Company and the adopted father of Kristen Bell's Elle, Bob served as a primary antagonist for the show's second season. It should be interesting to see him step into a role made famous by Michael Gough and Michael Caine in the Batman films.
