    Bane´s father perhaps?

    • Antrozous

      You never watched Stargate SG-1 with Richard Dean “Macgyver” Anderson?

      • bradley

        Teal’c.

        • bradley

          On an unrelated note, I wish they hadn’t cancelled Stargate Universe.

      • Veronica-bellotti

        no

    • Veronica-bellotti

      I don’t know him either

    • abw2

      He played Teal’c in the Sc-fi television series, Stargate: SG-1…

  • Guitardude006

    Maybe a gangster akin to Michael Jai White’s character in TDK.

  • Antrozous

    I would say League of Shadows related. He has quite an oriental look…

    • http://twitter.com/_Corporal Corporal

      have they even brought League of shodows  in to any of the nolan films yet, i dont think so, unless i missed,  or was i wrong…? every one says oh LoS this and that, i didnt think nolan was even taken that route. 

      • Steven

        The first movie, Batman Begins, features the League of Shadows and casts Liam Neeson as Ra’s al Ghul, the main protagonist in the story.

      • Dman

        ra’s Ghul was leader of the league of shadows in the 1st one batman begins, even though in the comic book its suppose to be the league of assasins

    • Syck174

      Ya in the Batman Begins bro, Ra’s al Ghul is the leader of The League of Shadows remember???? When he said “Only a cynical man would call what these people have “lives,” Wayne. Crime, despair… this is not how man was supposed to live. The League of Shadows has been a check against human corruption for thousands of years. We sacked Rome, loaded trade ships with plague rats, burned London to the ground. Every time a civilization reaches the pinnacle of its decadence, we return to restore the balance.” This is where Bruce received his training to become Batman. I dont know how ya missed that lol but Nolan did say he was bringing it full circle with the trilogy so maybe ya should freshen up on BB & TDK especially before TDKR comes out. Hope this helped, Cheers, mate.

        Indeed.

      • Isaac

        fuck off

    • http://www.facebook.com/JuliBaleGirl Juli Balehead

      I think he is Ubu or some prisoner.

  • Kratos2009

    I love Christopher Judge this is awesome!

  • Mason Drumm

    Looks like “Clay Face” to me.

    • Eddy Nashton

      Clay face would require too much CGI to create unfortunately. Chris Nolan doesn’t like using too much of that ( ex. Launching the batmobile through a waterfall in begins) so Clay Face will not be making an appearance

      • http://grauskala.blogspot.com/ Willie

        Dude, did you see “The incredible melting man”? There was no CGI at all, and worked fine! LOL… I’m just kidding! :D

      • Anonymous

        Actually, the original version of Clayface was just a serial killer wearing make up form an old movie set, the shape-shifting version didn’t come until later.

        • Nikkisixx986

          exactly….glad somebody reads comics

        • Dman

          true… i forgot about that

    • Dman

      clayface almost seems to cartoonish for a christopher nolan film especially since this version of batman is more likely to fight super inteligetn/yet highly dangerous enemies like the joker, ra’s al ghul, bane, (ppl not mentioned in the films so far) huugo strange and the riddler

  • antiph0bia

    This late into filming? Michael Cain said they were already halfway done when they premiered Cars 2, so I’m trying to figure out where he fits in.

    • Batman Fan

      Yeah, well Michael Caine isn’t exactly a go-to guy for ACCURATE information.  How many times in the last 5 years has he put out stuff on TDK and TDKR that has just been flat out BS?  The penguin and the riddler comes to mind.  He has a knack for not knowing what the hell is going on but still opening his mouth anyway.  Maybe he is Nolan’s one man disinformation team.  Or perhaps he is halfway done with shooting his stuff on the film.  Anyway, the filming is supposed to go until October or November so it’s not that implausible to hire another actor on right now.  Especially if it’s just going to be a bit part.

      • antiph0bia

        Thanks for the clarification! I’m betting that he meant that HIS scenes we’re done… never thought of that interpretation.

      • Antrozous

        “Maybe he is Nolan’s one man disinformation team”

        Hahahah that one make me laugh! Funny and probably true as well… xD

      • Just some nut

        They wrap in November and started in May, as that Cars 2 interview was done mid July, i’d say that’s half-way done.

        I think he’d make a decent Killer Croc…

        • Soap Maker

          Killer Croc immediately jumped to mind when I looked him up. If they’re incorporating Lazarus Pits, then why not?

          • Boo

            He very likely was cast at the beginning of filming and was only just given the ok to reveal it. Look at him. He’s not a guy that’ll fade into the background in a small role like Cop #4.

          • http://twitter.com/estebee Esteban Gutiérrez

            I read something really interesting on “The official Dark Knight Rises” commnunity, of someone saying that the Lazarus Pits are definately NOT going in the movie the so-called “pits” are just a symbol of aquiring some position in TLoS, but they do not have any kind of properties nor effects… it’s an interesting idea… Real pits would be cool though

          • Naes

            I thought Waylon Jones too

  • http://twitter.com/Victor9098 Keith Drummond

    Well, he says he can ‘finally confirm’, so maybe he has been filming already? I loved him in SG-1, he is a big guy so maybe linked to Bane? Can not wait to see him on the big screen though, great news!

    • zaoman32

      trog maybe.

    • http://twitter.com/estebee Esteban Gutiérrez

      Ubu maybe??

  • http://twitter.com/Dr_greens bt

    fuck yeah, more SG actors in more stuff. Bring back Stargate.

      • Spider Dixon

        What if Tom Hardy is not Bane at all?.. What if he is one of the first Venom test subjects who just happens to have a big part of the story? and Christopher Judge is actually Bane? and will then come out in the real Bane mask and garb…..

  • http://twitter.com/_Corporal Corporal

    its clear what role he will play, if any one has seen his roles in stargate. this is most lickly be another  speacle forces officer, just like the guy from rescuse me (Daniel Sunjata) which was reported on this site a few months back : http://batman-news.com/2011/04/12/daniel-sunjata-joins-the-dark-knight-rises-cast/

  • Glaston

    little cameo as the joker

    • Jhiasd

      lol

  • Ian Minblevis

    Maybe used in flashbacks as a younger version of Ken Watanabe’s character? But if he was in the LoS flashbacks he would’ve had to join the cast before they shot in India maybe, he could be one of Bane’s men, maybe he’s Bird? Bane’s right hand man? but in the comics Bird’s blonde, and Caucasian 

  • redXphantom

    He would have made an awsome Darkseid on Smallville, they lacked a good physical villian last season. It’s nice to see him doing more movies, he needs to whoop some ass!

    • bradley

      I think Michael Shanks played a villain on Smallville.

      • Chris Norris

        Michael Shanks played another super hero on Smallville. He was Hawk. And I feel bad for Shanks because he can’t seem to get out of the whole Archaeologist thing. He even did the batman voice for the character haha. Nice little tie in to this post.

        • redXphantom

          Michael Shanks is another good actor who is under used in hollywood. I would like to see them in more starring roles.

  • http://twitter.com/hobodeluxe Jim Shields

    my bet is he is playing Ubu.

    • Batmanfan

      He’s bane. Last clip of the trailer in the fight scene where the crowd is cheering him on against batman.

      • bradley

        No. Tom Hardy is Bane. That has been officially confirmed many times.

      • http://grauskala.blogspot.com/ Willie

        Are you nuts or on dope or something?

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AAS635TE7BR7OJDZICFQU63RVU X- BOY

           That’s what I’ve been wondering too.

  • Bazman05

    I like this guy. I was wondering what he was up to after SG1 and would he get anymore work but it doesn’t get any bigger that this. I hope it’s a decent role.

  • Anonymous

    It will be a small role, but a cool edition none the less…

  • Anonymous

    It’s probly for the L.A shoot They need hella people like victims,perpetrators,Prisoners,Thugs,Guards,Hoes,Lmao,Police officers,Business men/women.         It’s gonna go down in Gotham

  • LOS2012

    Ubu is a good guess…..

  • http://grauskala.blogspot.com/ Willie

    Man, I hate SyFy channel… well, no idea about this guy, but maybe some cop… he has a cop face to me!

    • Chris Norris

      I dislike the SyFy channel as well. The SciFi channel was awesome, though. And he clearly has the face of an alien, not a cop. Or maybe a fireman…

      • Willie

        This guy is pretty exotic… yeah, LOS member for sure! Or, if I remember well, Bane has 3 henchmen… could be one of those.

    • Anonymous

      I know what what your saying , most of what they do is SH*T , but they did give us Battlestar Gallactica , wich was brilliant .

  • Camlabar

    C. Judge could be cast as The General

  • Sheldon

    Ubu

    Robin.

      no thanks

       What???Are you kidding?Or is that really what you came up with?

  • abw2

    Damn Christopher Judge. I mean Jesus Christ is everyone (that I know) going to be in this film? LOL P :)

  • Anonymous

    And yet another love interest for Bruce Wayne… The guy
    will really have his hands full.

    It seems quite obvious that Judge will be an ex-ballerina of the Russian Ballet
    seeking revenge from the Batman after being used as a decoy.

    Meeting with Hugo Strange to plan something evil, Judge’s character will 
    fall in a tanning-venom pool (Strange was using a tan center as a dummy company
    for his experiments).

    This will be epic.

    And sexy.

    • http://grauskala.blogspot.com/ Willie

      lol

  • KillerCroc

    i just wonder what you guys think about Killer Croc because he is my favorite villain and i would like to see him in a Batman Movie!

    • http://grauskala.blogspot.com/ Willie

      Killer Croc is a damn good character! He was hoaxed in this movie long ago… Clayface as well.

  • Gonorrea99

    I’m pretty sure he’s gonna play a male nurse.

  • Boo

    From his size/build/look… I’m guessing Ubu.

  • http://twitter.com/estebee Esteban Gutiérrez

    definately

  • http://twitter.com/estebee Esteban Gutiérrez

    I’d love it… but it doesn’t seem plausible! =(

  • Jreaper0289

    ya he brought up the league of shadows in batman begins and i think christopher judge will play a mentor or something like that to bane

  • Steigs316

    Ubu, I like it….

  • Whereissarahconnor

    KILLER CROC!!!!!!!! YEAAAHH!!!!!!

  • Camlabar

    quick question. you do you all think was the guy behind batman in the new trailer. The part where batman is walking away from bane?? Or is this not really important?

  • Camlabar

    sidenote – from the research ive been doing on bane, he is starting to sound a lot like sylar from Heroes

  • Sheldon

    Ubu………. i can confirm 100% is Ubu

  • Sheldon

  • http://www.facebook.com/konrad.keck Konrad Keck

    If it’s true I like it. The man is my fav in SG-1. 
    However, has someone counted the actors so far? There are already so many, that I have the feeling Nolan playing us here. Imagine a movie with one popular face every minute. I trus Nolan, but I can’t think were he puts all the actors in his film. Not to mention the about 3,000 remarkable faces and football players recruited in Pittsburg. Isn’t there a tipping point where you have too much people in a movie?

  • Wcurrin3

    I bet that he will be Michael Washington Lane, an ex cop, a member of the “Azrael,” which is a group of assassins known as the Angels of Death. Lane replaced Batman temporarily when Bane broke Batman’s back.

  • Sherlong2010

    S ome one indicated that he may be Clayface and I dismissed that notion thinking that it willnot fit in to the ‘Nolan-verse’ way of business. now, i think he just may be Clayface Indeed! For a few reasons. I heavily believe that Alfred and some form of “supposed” reincarnation of Thomas Wayne will factor in significantly. this is the final installment of this franchise peeps. Pay particular attention to the comics “Whatever happened to the Caped Crusader” which was based on the death of Batman and ‘Hush”. I say Hush,as Clayface had Batman fooled intobelieving that Jason Todd was alive. Who knows,maybe he can fool him into believing that his father is still alive? Maybe Clayface is a pawn of Bane? Gary Oldman did say a veryold,old villain will resurface……​……….

  • Beefcake

    Maybe Ironicly he will play a judge

    The Real Bane

    • MilkMan

      Ubu or as he isnt quite A-list, he will be a inmate/opponent who whilst is genetically bigger than Bane (Tom Hardy) will get beaten badly by Bane, early into the film as a show of Bane’s ability. 

      Most likely Ubu though as if it was the above they wouldn’t make so much of a hoo har about it….
