Casting News: Kevin Durand Joins Cosmopolis And The Dark Knight Rises Adds Three

The movie industry has been erupting today with casting and project pick ups leading the charge. We’ve covered just about everything but today’s remaining casting news includes Kevin Durand joining the cast of Cosmopolis, and three new actors being added to the cast of The Dark Knight Rises.

David Cronenberg’s adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel adds Lost alum Kevin Durand to the cast. The film follows a multimillionaire on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan as he attempts to get a haircut, betting his wealth against the declining Japanese Yen.

Robert Pattinson plays as a multimillionaire who risks his entire fortune to bet against the Japanese Yen on a cataclysmic day. Durand will play Pattinson’s chief security officer. The film also stars Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Keira Knightley and Sarah Gadon. (Variety)

In The Dark Knight Rises news, with the all the major castings like that of Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Juno Temple and Joseph Gordon-Levitt completed, the film can move forward with casting the smaller pieces. Of course no role is insignificant when it comes to a Christopher Nolan movie though.

The Tracking Board (via Slashfilm) is reporting that Rescue Me and Grey’s Antaomy actor Daniel Sunjata will be joining the castas a courageous special forces operative. Apparently, his role is of the upmost importance. Also joining the cast are Diego Klattenhoff, as “a rookie cop who is looking to make a difference” and Burn Gorman, in a “supporting role.”

Klattenhoff was recently cast in Showtime’s upcoming show Homefront while Gorman was in Layer Cake, the popular BBC series Torchwood and will appear in the Johnny English Reborn.
