Daniel Sunjata, who you may know from FX’s hit series Rescue Me, recently spoke to Da Man and dished out a few details about his upcoming role in The Dark Knight Rises. It’s not much to go on, but he did reveal a bit more about his character.
“Under penalty of death, I have been sworn to secrecy regarding this project,” Sunjata said. “But what I can tell you is that I portray a special forces operative who tries to help Batman defeat Bane. Working with Christopher Nolan was a great thrill for me. Taking direction from such a visionary artist is what every actor dreams of. I was very thankful for the opportunity.
“Indeed an impenetrable cloud of secrecy surrounded the entire shoot—to the extent that most of the actors never saw a full script. We even had to sign confidentiality agreements. Beyond that, however, the burden of maintaining secrecy rests mainly with the production staff and with Mr. Nolan,” he explained.
Just like with any news regarding The Dark Knight Rises, this tidbit is vague and really doesn’t add much value. To be honest, I’m really not sure that we can gain any insight at all from what he has said.
Fear not though as all will be revealed when The Dark Knight Rises hits theatres on July 20th, 2012.
