Matthew Modine Cast in "The Dark Knight Rises"Submit Comment
Christopher Nolan just started filming "The Dark Knight Rises" and immediately unveiled the first photo of Tom Hardy as Bane. Today, three more actors have been cast in the film.

In addition to the casting of Tom Conti (The Tempest) and 11-year-old Joey King (Ramona and Beezus), Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket) is now on board to play a character named Nixon. Details of the characters are being kept a secret.

"The Dark Knight Rises" will film in Pittsburgh, New York, Los Angeles, India, England and Scotland. It is set to hit theaters on July 20th, 2012.

They figured a way to bring 'Joker' back to The Dark Knight Rises!!!! *hint: He was in another movie where his character's nickname is the same as Heath Ledger's character's name in The Dark Knight. This is specifically for those of you who need a little assistance in figuring it out. I'm speaking of course of Che, Jake Awesomeness, Shayiri and that f*cking retarded girl who keeps spamming porn pictures on here ...


Matthew Modine ? Wasn't his career more dead and buried, rotting like Lindsay Lohan's vagina during a yeast infection exam than Macho Man Randy Savage's body on the examination table in the morgue ?

Too early ?

Damn, he looks like he smokes the same crystal meth as Jeff Conaway and Gary Busey.

Lay off the pipe, Matt.

I guess Nolan and Tarantino have one thing in common..they like to bring back old school actors and revive their careers..Remember Eric Roberts in TDK

I think Modine will play some sort of Anit-Batman politician or some sh*t.

But now, this is really looking interesting. Nolan should at least once a week add something new to the Website, but something that will only keep us guessing and pumped for the movie. No Spoilers.!

The Dark Knight Rises has now a great cast and bring back Eric Roberts and Anthony Michael Hall from TDK that would been awesome for continuity.

Matthew Modines' a good actor and his career in deep in the sh*tter but it worked well for Eric Roberts,Rutger Hauer.

theres too many f*cking characters

If I had to guess, I'd say Modine's playing either Gordon's brother, who raises his illegitemate daughter Barbara.
or he could be Bruce Wayne's father in flashbacks. He looks a bit like Christian Bale at times, and in the comics Thomas Wayne had dealing with Ra's al Ghul.

Except it wouldn't be that difficult to get Linus Roache back as Thomas Wayne.

I like these "out of the blue"-castings. It's always fun to say "hey, that's that guy from that movie".

Modine was never really bad, but Cutthroat Island didn't do him any favours.

Nolan is going to take one of the worst aspects of TDK (character and story bloat) and ramp it up 200%. This is his way of improving on TDK, and because audiences and critics were too busy glorifying the second film, and not offering constructive criticisms, he believes this is the best way to make the final film.

So it's the more is more theory then ...
minkowski writes:

Well, it sure as hades isn't the less is more theory, trailer....

If you add up the number of characters from the comic books, you still have two less than Batman Begins.

on May 22nd, 2011 at 1:11:05 AM

scratch that. one less.

Can't hate the Modine, he was in 3 great movies..

Pacific Heights
Full Metal Jacket
Bird (I think that is the name)

Batman Begins had a vastly less convoluted story than TDK, and if you can't see that, you don't know jack about writing.

thought Modine was dead, hadnt seen him in quite a while.
rabid writes:

I doubt the story in this one will be all that convoluted. Bane comes to town, breaks the bat. Bat heals with the Ghul family, kicks Bane's ass, makes truce with the Ghul's.
