April 12, 2011 -- The Dark Knight Rises looks like it will be drawing in more girls -- three new actors have been cast and they are, well, SO HOT.
Definitely in is The Social Network's Josh Pence (right, he's the model whose face was digitally removed and replaced by Armie Hammer to play the Winklevoss Twins): he'll play a young Ra's Al Ghul in a flashback (Liam Neeson is the older version). Daniel Sunjata (Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, "Grey's Anatomy," left) is in early talks for a "courageous special forces operative" and the role is rumored to be "an imporant character in the story."
Diego Klattenhoff (The Ice Princess, Mean Girls) has been offered the part of a rookie cop who wants to make a difference.
Also, Character actor (that's a nice way to say "not as good looking") Burn Gorman (Fred Claus, Penelope) has also been offered a supporting role which hasn't been disclosed.
Christian Bale is returning to play Bruce Wayne/Batman and will be joined by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine, Juno Temple, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman.
The Dark Knight Rises is set for release on July 20, 2012.
