Matthew Modine Looking Sleazy on the Set of The Dark Knight Rises

Matthew Modine Looking Sleazy on the Set of <em>The Dark Knight Rises</em>

Some great close-up pictures of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Matthew Modine. Modine is rumored to be, Nixon, the third villain in Christopher Nolan's new Batman movie.

Matthew Modine and JGL were filming scenes at Wall St. yesterday, which was transformed into the Gotham Stock Exchange. In the scene, a group of floor traders were seen exiting the the exchange with their hands high in the air. As they walked down the steps Bane's mercenaries raced down the steps in motorcycles, causing the crowd of traders to divide and dash for safety. According to reports Modine was not on the back of the motorcycles like some had thought, but was in fact shooting at the mercenaries with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Modine will be portraying a 'politician and a key villain' called Nixon in the upcoming conclusion to Christopher Nolan's superhero trilogy.

And it's possible that Modine's politician is involved some kind of sleaze. The choice of name, echoing so directly the Watergate disgrace of American president Richard Nixon, probably isn't a coincidence, either, though he was never linked to a sex scandal.

30-year-old Levitt plays John Blake, a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty under the command of Commissioner Gordon, played by Gary Oldman -

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Garly Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.
