Last Friday the news broke that actors Matthew Modine, Joey King & Tom Conti had joined the cast of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Rises. A little later news emerged that Modine would in fact be playing a character named "Nixon", well today a little rumor is circulating that Modine's "Nixon" is in fact a Villain. Hit the jump for the details.
Variety had first reported the name of the character that Matthew Modine would be playing: "Nixon", but a couple of sites are squeezing a lil bit more info in there with no clear sources. Showbiz 411 have tweeted the following: "Batman's Dark Knight Rises: Matthew Modine is playing Nixon "a politician and a key villain" Now I don't know if Nolan is being a little Post Modern here, Nixon the Criminal Politician? but I like the idea, I want Franco the evil Postman and Hitler the evil IceCream Van driver. Updates as they happen on this one.
