Casting announcements for "The Dark Knight Rises" have been rolling out at a steady clip the last few months, even after production officially began on the film last month. However, the latest addition to the cast of Christopher Nolan's final Batman film could be the last name added to the mix.
Actor Josh Stewart ("The Collector") has joined the cast of "The Dark Knight Rises," according to Variety. The 34-year-old actor joins the much-anticipated film's cast in an unspecified role — which is pretty much par for the course when it comes to Nolan's wildly successful Batman franchise.
It's also worth noting that the report indicates that Stewart is the final actor to join the project's the cast, so we could be looking at the full lineup for The Dark Knight's return to the big screen next year.
As for what role he'll play in the film, with most of the principals already cast and production underway, it's unlikely that Stewart will be playing one of the top-level characters from the DC universe — though there's always the chance for surprises from Nolan.
Stewart joins a cast that's full of newcomers to the franchise, including Anne Hathaway as Selina "Catwoman" Kyle, Tom Hardy as Bane, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake. Christian Bale returns as Bruce Wayne, along with Michael Caine as Alfred, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, among others.
We got our first look at Tom Hardy as Bane last month, thanks to a clever viral marketing campaign for "The Dark Knight Rises."
