Any little nugget of information regarding The Dark Knight Rises seems to push us closer to this final sequel's July 20th release date. Gary Oldman will reprise his role as Jim Gordon, continuing on one of the more popular story threads from previous movies.

As many know, Gary Oldman is an astute and sometimes painfully truthful actor when it comes to projects he is involved with, and praise does not come easily for the perfectionist, who has been known to be quite hard on himself and his past performances. So it shouldn't be taken lightly when he sincerely states that Christopher Nolan has topped himself when it comes to the story for The Dark Knight Rises.

"I have not read the script. But I have talked to Christopher Nolan about the story. It's fantastic. You can't top The Dark Knight, and I think he may have."

When asked if he could tell people when he starts shooting, he very firmly said, "No." The actor then went onto talk about his character in director Tomas Alfredson's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

"It is probably the greatest role I have ever played. Great cast. John Hurt. Tom Hardy. Colin Firth. Ciarán Hinds. Toby Jones. And its directed by Tomas Alfredson. And I think it will be a goodie."
