Gordon-Levitt300Former Third Rock From The Sun star Joseph Gordon-Levitt has joined the cast of The Dark Knight Rises and is reportedly going to play Alberto Falcone.

Alberto, son of Carmine Falcone the mobster in Batman Begins, is better known as the Holiday Killer; a criminal whose calling card is committing murders themed around public holidays.

Gordon-Levitt is joining an already stellar cast including Christian Bale reprising his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.

New characters are being revealed for The Dark Knight Rises at a surprising rate, and it will be interesting to see how director Christopher Nolan manages to fit them all in and maintain the gritty feel which has characterised his time in charge of the Batman franchise.
