Daniel Sunjata, Two Other Actors Join <i>The Dark Knight Rises</i>

Rescue Me star Daniel Sunjata and two other actors are in line for supporting roles in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, Variety reports.

Sunjata, who co-stars on Grey’s Anatomy, will play “a courageous special forces operative,” a part that The Tracking Board describes as “an important character to the story.”

Diego Klattenhoff, who’ll appear in the newly greenlit Showtime drama Homeland, has been offered the part of a rookie cop looking to make a difference, while Torchwood‘s Burn Gorman is being considered for an unspecified supporting role.

The three actors join a cast that so far includes Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Juno Temple, Josh Pence and, presumably, Marion Cotillard.

Written by Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan from a story by Nolan and David S. Goyer, The Dark Knight Rises begins filming this summer in Pittsburgh before moving to London, Los Angeles and New York City. It opens on July 20, 2012.
