Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt officially join The Dark Knight Rises

Just when you thought all the exciting roles had been cast for the upcoming INCEPTION 2 THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, Christopher Nolan adds a few more surprises. We already knew that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was going to be in the film, but we all thought he was going to be playing The Holiday Killer. Instead, it sounds like his role is much less exciting as he’ll be playing a beat cop named John Blake that’s assigned to “special duty” under Commissioner Gordon. We also have confirmation that Marion Cotillard will be starring in the film as well. She’ll be playing Miranda Tate, a board member for Wayne Enterprises that is eager to help Bruce get back into business.
So there you have it. Surprised? I’m not shocked by any means, but I figured Gordon-Levitt would have a juicier role. I can only assume that there’s more to his character than just a run of the mill policeman. And it sounds like Cotillard is basically Bruce’s love interest, so that makes sense. They join a cast that already includes Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway and Michael Caine.
