Dexter's Desmond Harrington Joins the Cast of The Dark Knight Rises

<em>Dexter's</em> Desmond Harrington Joins the Cast of <em>The Dark Knight Rises</em>

Filming has officially wrapped on the third Batman, and this is your last set report. Click the jump for details on his role.

An extra that was at the filming of the Queensboro bridge scene this past weekend came across the actor, Desmond Harrington. He plays Det. Joseph Quinn. on Showtime's popular television show Dexter. He didn't reveal any other information on the filming, but to say that Desmond was dressed in a Gotham State police officer uniform.

While one of the few eye witnesses of the filming on the bridge tweeted that he saw a scene being filmed over and over again that school children rushing into a school bus. By the way if I was a guessing man, which I am, I'd assume that this scene has something to do with Joseph Gordon Levitt's character. He was scene in Pittsburgh filming scenes ushering children onto a yellow school bus.

One thing I will say...I had no idea that Quinn from Dexter was in the movie. I get up to the bridge and there he is just hanging out as a Gotham State Trooper - looked right at me as suddenly i'm like "holy f*** it's Quinn" (not audibly).

He's a pretty good actor on Dexter. This is pretty cool. Hopefully he gets a speaking role.

Looks angry and sad but really hes happy then you look at him and realise he's just got a F'in misserable face

Quinn redeems himself in each episode by telling Deb to [frick] off. Cool to see him for what will probably be a minute or two.

Probably similar to Nicky Katt's passenger cameo during the Joker/Police Convoy chase.

why would you ever want Robin when you got the Batman, he's the best superhero of all time and he's gonna kick Bane in the balls
BatSlam - 11/15/2011, 6:50 AM

I hope it's not just a small cameo! or if it is ... a naked cameo please Nolan.
