Dark Knight Casting Addition, UK Shoot

One new addition has been made to the cast of Chris Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” with Israeli actor Alon Aboutboul (TV’s “Castle,” “Body of Lies”) confirmed to be playing a mad scientist in the film.

The news first appeared at the gossip site XO and the news was later confirmed by the actor’s wife on Twitter. Aboutboul will play a role akin to an evil mad scientist which has lead to unconfirmed speculation that he’s going to be Dr. Hugo Strange.

Meanwhile shooting on the film moves to London next week according to HollywoodChicago which indicates that the interior of the Farmiloe Building on St. John Street is being redressed as Gotham City’s police headquarters.
