3 More Cast Members Join The Dark Knight Rises

More Cast Members in The Dark Knight Rises

Variety’s Jeff Sneider reports that Matthew Mondine, Tom Conti, and 11 year-old Joey King have joined the cast of The Dark Knight Rises. The casting of Matthew Modine goes well in-tow with Christopher Nolan’s determination to cast actors from the 80s who have since fallen a bit from the spotlight, e,g., Rutger Hauer in Batman Begins, Eric Roberts in The Dark Knight, and Tom Berenger in Inception. Modine is most notably known for his role in Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 Vietnam War pic, Full Metal Jacket. According to Variety he’ll be playing a character named Nixon, a character who seemingly popped up in sides for the film over the past month or so. There’s no word on who Tom Conti will be playing, but the casting of 11-year-old female Joey King raises our suspicions quite a bit. The casting of Josh Pence as a young Ra’s al Ghul, then Marion Cotillard as a generic board member, and now this little girl in an unmentioned role should clue you into who we think she could possibly be playing. If you can’t figure out who we’re talking about… well… you’re bound to solve the puzzle eventually. I suspect we’re right, but knowing Nolan, we could be dead wrong. What do you guys think?
