Jim Gordon...ok I had Kurt Russle in this part but I felt a younger actor was needed. To me Jim Gordon is the last good cop in a rotten city. Jim would be a highly decorated gulf war vet who came home to be a police officer after as a young beat cop he was offered a quickly rose and accepted a detective job in Coast City but after boached raid on a drug den leaves his partner crippled Jim is shipped back to Gotham.

Bane. Mainly know for his roles as Lincon on prision break, When Purcell is given good material I feel he could be an Impossing force against the Dark Knight Large articulate with a steel gaze he deserves a chance to pull himself from the B movies to the mainstream.
