Josh Pence, best known for his role in “The Social Network” who had his face digitally edited out has been cast by Christopher Nolan to play a young “Ra’s Al Ghul.

Confirmed by THR, this news leads us to wonder if Liam Neeson would also return to reprise his role as the older Ra’s Al Ghul who supposedly “died” in the first film. According to inside sources “Pence will appear in scenes that take place 30 years prior to the present story.”

Pence who strikes a remarkable resemblance to a young Neeson recently wrapped up Peter Berg’s alien sci-fi movie “battleship.” He will now join a magnificent cast in “The Dark Knight Rises” that includes Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Morgan Freeman.
