There’s no rest for the Wicked Within star Eric Roberts. Best known perhaps for his Oscar-nominated role in Runaway Train, for his more recent turn as a crime lord in The Dark Knight, or for rearing model/actress Emma Roberts, the thespian lays claim to another remarkable feat of unsung heroism: according to IMDb, Roberts presently has 57 movies in production.

With statuses ranging from pre-production to completion, Roberts’ many prospects for 2013 and beyond inhabit the genres of comedy, drama, action, sci-fi, crime, thriller, and the uncategorizable: Entertainment Weekly reports that Roberts will be starring in the highly dreaded The Human Centipede III.

In addition to the 57 films in question, Roberts also has a handful of titles announced for the future and a couple of television appearances. Bravo, Mr. Roberts. Your work ethic puts the rest of us to shame.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
