Get out your eyeliner, because the man with the darkest lashes in the business is getting ready to make a return to Gotham City.

Variety reports that Nestor Carbonell (who you might also remember as Richard Alpert from "Lost") is in negotiations to reprise his role as the Mayor in Christopher Nolan's upcoming "The Dark Knight Rises." No word yet on how beefed up or not his role will be, or if it's simply for the sake of continuity, but basically, any opportunity to step into one of the biggest films of next year with one of the most acclaimed big budget filmmakers going is a chance any actor will take no matter how long they're gonna be on screen.

Carbonell will join Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Juno Temple, Josh Pence, Daniel Sunjata, Diego Klattenhoff and Burn Gorman with the final confirmations likely to come through on Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard before cameras roll. The film hits on July 20, 2012.

    You commenters are hilarious. You frequent a movie site because they blog about detailed and timely movie news, then you make fun of that blog for doing that very thing. Do you also comment on Variety's site that their casting news is not worthwhile? If this post was not interesting to you, then just ignore it.

    I know what you're getting at, but I wouldn't put "police officer #1", on a par with the best boy grip. That's kind of insulting to a grip.

    any word yet on who lands coveted role as "Police Officer #1" or who is handling Best Boy Grip duties???
