Three more actors join The Dark Knight Rises

Daniel Sunjata, Diego Klattenhoff and Burn Gorman on board

Three more actors have been cast in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, according to a report by Variety.

Daniel Sunjata, Diego Klattenhoff and Burn Gorman are all set to take supporting roles in the hotly-anticipated threequel.

Daniel Sunjata and his Buzz Lightyear-esque chin are being tapped to play a special forces operative. He's probably best-known for his roles in TV's Rescue Me and Grey's Anatomy, and he played a designer in The Devil Wears Prada.

He's also completed his role as Ranger in One for the Money, the forthcoming Janet Evanovich adaptation starring Katherine Heigl.

Diego Klattenhoff is set to play a rookie cop, which means he'll probably be working with Gary Oldman's Commissioner Gordon. The Canadian actor has previously appeared in Mean Girls, Lucky Number Slevin and The Informers.

Finally the superbly-monikered Burn Gorman looks likely to take an unspecified supporting role. American-born Brit Gorman played Owen Harper in Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood, and has also appeared in Cemetery Junction and Layer Cake.

The Dark Knight Rises is set for release on 20 July 2012, with shooting due to begin imminently.

Can you bear to wait any longer for The Dark Knight Rises? Any suggestions for a generic Gotham role that Burn Gorman could play? Talk to us below!

      I know he keeps adding lots of actors but when you think about it there was lot in the dark knight with all the different cops and mobsters, and they didnt have much screen time, so most of these will have like a minute on screen probably

      @dalidab1982 - Half the actors who get mentioned in these sorts of articles will probably only have about two lines in the finished film, so don't worry about it. It's a high-profile flick, so the slightest thing is considered newsworthy.

      Come on be fair, Daniel Sunjata was great in Rescue Me and after all in the last one 'Mandy from Hollyoaks' was Maroni's girll, William Fitchner was the bank manager, Anthony MIcheal Hall, the captured reporter and Micheal Jai White (BLACK DYNO-MIITE!) as Gambol...most of them will be blink and you'll miss them

      If I was to guess....I would go with the three of those guys coming in to play Bird, Trogg and Zombie. Aka Bane's three right hand guys.

      Burn Gorman? Man, that kid's parents must have REALLY hated William Hope's character in Aliens.
