According to reports, Israeli actor Alon Aboutboul will play the role of an evil mad scientist on Dark Knight Rises.
The still above shows Alon Aboutboul’s appearance on Fringe.
Batman-on-Film points out this article at Xnet that claims Aboutboul — a 45-year-old actor whose stateside film credits include Body of Lies, Munich, The Order and Rambo III — will portray “a particularly evil mad scientist.” The site claims that the casting news was apparently confirmed in a tweet by Aboutboul’s wife, director Shir Bilya. (Warner Bros. had not responded to IGN’s request for confirmation or denial at time of publish.)
Obviously, many fanboys have jumped to the conclusion that this evil mad scientist could be the long-rumored Professor Hugo Strange. While there’s no Bat-fan more eager than me to have Hugo Strange in the film, I don’t think that’s the scientist Aboutboul is said to be playing. He could just as easily be involved with Bane and the Venom that fuels him, or perhaps he works for Ra’s Al Ghul. He could also be an entirely original creation.
Aboutboul has appeared on TV series including Fringe (as Dr. Armand Silva in the episode “Immortality”), Castle, NCIS and The Mentalist. His overseas film credits include his award-winning turns in Out of the Blue and Nina’s Tragedies.
Any idea on the identity of the said scientist?
