    But if he does get cast (not getting my hopes up) I can imagine him playing some sort of detective or cop along side Gary Oldman. I doubt he would play a villain.

    But anyway – I want to marry you JGL.

    I think Joseph Gordon Levitt is a great actor! I mean he’s been around for a while and has many good movies like ’10 Things I Hate About You’, ‘Mysterious Skin’, ’3rd Rock From The Sun’ etc, its just a little bit annoying that NOW he’s being recognised. I’ll be very happy if he stars in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ :D

    The first thing that popped into my mind was Robin, but he will be great at whatever role they give him. Can’t wait for the movie!

    Him and Tom Hardy together in the same film again? That’s brilliant news. The chemistry between them was palpable.

    He is a slick, smart. A perfect “one of guys” on any Christopher Nolan’s dark movies. Good choice.

    Jokergurl Says:

    I agree he does look a lot like Heath Ledger, in fact there were rumors two years ago about him playing the Joker in the sequel to The Dark Knight, that’s why I’m actually surprised to see this. If he is in it, they will have to change his looks if they want him to play a different part a bit because he looks like Heath!

    @Jason: No, Jason, ITs not just you. They very much look alike but that’s sort of old news lol.

    DBSK Says:

    they dont look alike! its just the EYES thats it
    he looks like a mix of ledger and keanu

    Ledger was huge and more better looking

    Now they just need to include Rupert Thorne, Black Mask, Dr. Hugo Strange and Deadshot and this movie will have all the major villains it needs. Christopher Nolan is the undisputed best and greatest director in the world. The Dark Knight Rises will be the biggest movie of 2012. Watch out Avatar!
