The director also reported that off-camera, the hot young actor, best known as Robin the Boy Wonder of ``Batman Forever,'' keeps things light. ``He's so quick-witted. He does ad libs that have everyone laughing.'' At least one of those moments might wind up in ``The Chamber,'' in a scene between O'Donnell and Lela Rochon in a bar.
