Daniel Sunjata, Diego Klattenhoff and Burn Gorman on board

Three more actors have been cast in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises , according to a report by Variety.

Daniel Sunjata, Diego Klattenhoff and Burn Gorman are all set to take supporting roles in the hotly-anticipated threequel.

Daniel Sunjata and his Buzz Lightyear-esque chin are being tapped to play a special forces operative. He's probably best-known for his roles in TV's Rescue Me and Grey's Anatomy , and he played a designer in The Devil Wears Prada .

He's also completed his role as Ranger in One for the Money , the forthcoming Janet Evanovich adaptation starring Katherine Heigl.

Diego Klattenhoff is set to play a rookie cop, which means he'll probably be working with Gary Oldman's Commissioner Gordon. The Canadian actor has previously appeared in Mean Girls , Lucky Number Slevin and The Informers .

Finally the superbly-monikered Burn Gorman looks likely to take an unspecified supporting role. American-born Brit Gorman played Owen Harper in Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood , and has also appeared in Cemetery Junction and Layer Cake .

The Dark Knight Rises is set for release on 20 July 2012, with shooting due to begin imminently.
