Actor Eric Roberts: 'Bakersfield sucks'

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) - Filming for the faith-based film "Revelations" continues in Bakersfield. The people behind the movie are reaching out to locals who want to be extras in some scenes.

On Sunday, in between shoots, Eyewitness News spoke with members of the cast, including its star, Eric Roberts.

Roberts, who's been in dozens of films, including "The Dark Knight," and "Best of the Best," wasn't kind when asked about what he thought about the city of Bakersfield.

"Do you live in Bakersfield?" Roberts asked an Eyewitness News photographer, who said he does live in Bakersfield.

"Then you know how it is in Bakersfield. Bakersfield sucks. It's simple. It's a terrible place, geographically, weather-wise, everything. But, the people are the coolest. What can I tell you?" Roberts said.

Roberts will actually be in Bakersfield at least one more day as filming continues for "Revelations."
