Yes, I know these names may not be familiar to most people outside of fans of shows like Rescue Me, Mercy, and Torchwood, but when THE DARK KNIGHT RISES nabs a trio of thespians, it becomes the epitome of news.

Variety is reporting that Daniel Sunjata, Diego Klattenhoff, and Burn Gorman have all joined the cast of the upcoming film. 

Sunjata is set to play a special forces operative, Klattenhoff will take the role of a rookie cop, and Gorman has yet to have his role specified, so while their roles may not be huge, these three may have just gotten their biggest roles yet.

The trio join cast regulars like Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Gary Oldman, as well as newbies to the franchise like Tom Hardy, Juno Temple, Josh Pence, Marion Cotillard, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, so while it may not be hitting for another 15 months or so, the film’s cast is really filling out. 

I’m not hugely familiar with any of these three (except for Gorman, who may be best known for films like LAYER CAKE), so I can’t speak to their talent, but with Nolan behind the project, there had to be a reason they were cast, so I can’t wait to see what they do.
