Ra's Al Ghul will officially be the main villain for Arrow Season 3, but as of yet, casting for the character has not been announced. While I'll always know him as Qui-Gon, Liam Neeson's performance as Ra's al Ghul was one of the most interesting takes on the character I've ever witnessed. Basically:
So imagine my joy when, in a recent interview with MTV News, Neeson revealed that he would love to play the character again.
I would [play the character], in a heartbeat, if it came my way, yeah. Very much so.
When asked what kind of advice he'd give someone else taking on the role (BLASPHEMY!) he offered the following:
They have to believe in their philosophy. Ra’s al Ghul absolutely believed what he was doing was ultimately saving civilization, and it was quite a good argument he comes up with. Throughout the ages this fraternity, that brought the plague to wipe out a section of mankind because it needed to be regenerated again. Very dangerous, but you have to believe it.
Sage advice, sir! Honestly, I can't imagine another person in the role, but that's completely up to The CW in the end. While I can't think of anyone to fill the Big Bad Shoes of this incredible DC villain, maybe you can. Drop a comment and let us know who you'd like to see as Ra's al Ghul on the show!
