Dark Knight Rises Fills Small Roles

Casting on Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated “The Dark Knight Returns” must be headed to a close as three of the small roles in the picture have just been announced.

“Rescue Me” and “The Devil Wears Prada” hunk Daniel Sunjata is set to play a special forces operative, while Diego Klattenhoff (“Mean Girls,” “The Informers”) will play a rookie cop. The third role is an unspecified one that’s going to former “Torchwood” regular and “Layer Cake” star Burn Gorman says Variety.

Meanwhile some tracking sites have been resurrecting the old rumor that Dr. Hugo Strange will be a key character in this. Another has Katie Holmes returning to the franchise in the role of Elaine Dawes, the mother of Rachel Dawes whom she played in “Batman Begins”. Neither of these claims is reliable.
