With all of the lead roles (seemingly) now squared away, the rest of the cast of Christopher Nolan's trilogy-capper "The Dark Knight Rises" is coming together. In fact, a new name has just been confirmed: Juno Temple.
The young actress joins the cast as a "street-smart Gotham girl," Variety reports.
How large a role her character will play in the story is a mystery, but Variety probably rightly guesses that, given the general character description and lack of a proper name, it's a small part.
Still, it's one more high-profile gig for Temple, who has quite a few upcoming appearances in highly anticipated releases. You'll be able to see her latest this year in "The Exorcist" director William Friedkin's "Killer Joe." She's also lined up for leading roles in the upcoming 2011 horror flick "Jack and Diane" and Paul WS Anderson's take on "The Three Musketeers."
In other casting news this week, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who was confirmed for an unnamed role back in February was revealed to be playing Carmine Falcone's son Alberto, though that news was later refuted by another source. Alberto is a key character in Tim Sale and Jeph Loeb's graphic novel "Batman: The Long Halloween," two authors whose work served as an inspiration for Nolan in creating his dark and gritty trilogy of Batman films.
