Liam Neeson Confirmed For A Cameo In "Dark Knight Rises"
Reported by Jay Cochran - 2012.03.29
CNN recently spoke with actor Liam Neeson who confirmed for them that he will have some type of cameo role in the upcoming "The Dark Knight Rises" movie.
"I think so," he said. "I have no idea what the story is about. Nothing. Nothing. Seriously, I'm not sure if I'm still in it. It's a cameo – let's put it that way – if it still survives.”
Neeson played the character of Ra's al Ghul in Batman Begins, a character that supposedly had perished at the end of that movie. It remains to be seen if this new scene will be some kind of flashback scene or if we find out Ghul somehow survived his apparent death.
