Get To Know The New Actors Up For Supporting Roles In The Dark Knight Rises

If casting news for Dark Knight Rises keeps going like this until its release in 2012, we'll probably be reading about who's in talks to play "Girl at Bar #3" pretty soon. But for now, the rumors are still focused on supporting characters, and now we've got three more to add to the crowded roster: Daniel Sunjata, Diego Klattenhoff and Burn Gorman. What's that? Those names don't mean anything to you? No problem! Meet each one of them along with the character they're supposed to play after the jump.

Sunjata_thumb.jpg1. Diego Klattenhoff:

Remember Shane Oman from Mean Girls? How about Ginger from Lucky Number Slevin? Yeah, I don't either. But Klattenhoff played both characters! He's also worked pretty hard in the television field, with appearances on everything from 24 to the TV movie Firestorm: Last Stand at Yellowstone, which I now regret having not seen.

His role: A benevolent rookie cop.

Sunjata_thumb.jpg2. Burn Gorman:

Like many of the actors in The Hobbit, Gorman was pulled from British TV, most notably Torchwood. He will also play a character named Slater in the new Johnny English movie.

His role: Undisclosed. I'm guessing from the photo he won't be so benevolent though?


3. Daniel Sunjata:

Most notable for his role as Franco Rivera on Rescue Me, Sunjata has also appeared on Grey's Anatomy, 30 Rock and Lie to Me. He also played some characters I don't have much recollection of in The Devil Wears Prada and The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.

His role: A special forces operative. Speculate away!



  • Nads says:

    Sunjata should be Bullock.

  • David Cuthbert says:

    Sunjata starred on Broadway in "Take Me Out," was a semi-regular on "Law & Order" as a medical tekkie and returned to play a killer.

  • Kendra says:

    OWEN!!!!! (thats Burn Gorman in Torchwood, for the record)
    I really hope this happens.
    You guys better not be messing with me.
