UPDATED: Diego Klattenhoff and Burn Gorman also likely for roles

As production on Christopher Nolan's bat-finale, The Dark Knight Rises inches closer and closer, more bits of casting are slipping out. The latest is that of Daniel Sunjata, star of "Grey's Anatomy" and "Rescue Me" who, according to The Tracking Board (via /Film) has just joined the project in an unspecified capacity.

Sunjata has previously appeared on the big screen in films like The Devil Wears Prada and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.

The Dark Knight Rises will begin production shortly in Pittsburgh and is set to feature the return of Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman, along with roles for Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Juno Temple and Josh Pence. It is set for release on July 20, 2012.

UPDATE: Variety has added a bit more information, suggesting that Sunjata will play a special forces operative. They also report that two other actors, Diego Klattenhoff and Burn Gorman, are up for supporting roles.

Klattenhoff has appeared in films like Mean Girls and Lucky Number Slevin and is said to have been offered the part of a rookie cop. Burn Gorman is best known to genre fandom as Owen Harper on "Torchwood". His potential role is not specified.

So we're getting the mayor back who was in TDK? To quote Ric Flair: WHOOOO! WHOOOO!

Now how about some real casting news, especially some that matters.

I wonder when they're also going to announce the return of Anthony Michael Hall to his cameo reporter role? Actually I liked the way his part was handled in that film & as I recall, he didn't die. I believe he was on one of the boats that pseudo-Joker intended to blow up but didn't happen.

But ya know what? Remember how Heath-Joker 'interrupted a news broadcast' to announce his 'plans'? Well, I seem to recall that being handled so much better in the 1989 Burton film when Jack-Joker 'interrupted a news broadcast' to announce, "Joker here." And then proceeded to 'shove' everyone else right out of the TV screen! Oh, & it was so much more humorous too. Good times huh?

Actually, the last time we see him is when he does his upside-down "news cast" for the Joker....

True, but Ledger-Joker only called in on the phone. But it IS similar.....

I will say though, that Nicholson-Joker crashing the museum is MUCH more entertaining than Ledger-Joker crashing Dent's fundraiser...

What I liked about the B89 thing was the Joker taking advantage of the available media. That's what he did in Batman #1, when radio broadcasts were cutting edge. When B89 came out, TV broadcasts were the business so that's what he co-opted. (A) Broadcasting his image suits his vanity anyway and (B) it's adapting the story to the present time.

As you say, it just worked better.

May 20th, 2011

King, now eleven years old, played Ramona Quimby in Fox's Ramona and Beezus.

The Dark Knight Rises is now in-production internationally and features the the return of Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and Nestor Carbonell, along with roles for Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Juno Temple, Josh Pence and Daniel Sunjata. It is set for release on July 20, 2012.

There's also some pics there of those 3 actors, one of which is a little girl. Like I said:

Two More for The Dark Knight Rises
by Silas Lesnick
May 24th, 2011

Two more have been added to the cast of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. Variety reports that Brett Cullen and Chris Ellis have signed on for the film as a judge and a priest, respectively.

Cullen is best known for appearances in films like Apollo 13 and, in a very different comic book universe, Ghost Rider, where he played Barton Blaze, father to Nicolas Cage's Johnny Blaze.

Ellis, meanwhile, is also known for a part in Apollo 13 and other character roles in films like Transformers, Armageddon and Catch Me If You Can.

The Dark Knight Rises is now in production internationally and features the return of Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and Nestor Carbonell, along with roles for Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Juno Temple, Josh Pence, Daniel Sunjata, Matthew Modine, Tom Conti, Joey King, Alon Aboutboul, Burn Gorman and Diego Klattenhoff.. It is set for release on July 20, 2012.

Tried to upload the pic here & it still ain't taking! Maybe someday. Anyway, this looks to be a 'stellar' cast! Like I said before:

They'll probably be more 'mafia mafiosos'. Or something like that. 3 guesses & the 1st 2 don't count!
