Variety reports that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play mobster Alberto Falcone in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.
In the comic books, Alberto is the sunken-faced son of Gotham crime boss Carmine Falcone. The elder Falcone was portrayed by Tom Wilkinson in BATMAN BEGINS.
Should the scoop be true, Gordon-Levitt's role will bring the trilogy full-circle in what may shape up to be a gritty revenge plot.
