DARK KNIGHT CASTING UPDATE
Variety has reported that two unknown actors, known only as Jonathan and Jefferson, have been recently cast as Detectives Harvey Bullock and Renee Montoya in the upcoming Christopher Nolan-directed Batman sequel, The Dark Knight.
The two thespians have not appeared in any major Hollywood work before but are best known for co-hosting the “Superhero Cinema” podcast.
Oddly enough, according to our sources, it is still unknown which actor will be playing Bullock and which will be playing Montoya. It is, however, worth noting that Detective Renee Montoya is in fact a female character who is, apparently, being played by a male actor.
“We’re going to have photography sessions with each actor in a two-piece, somewhat revealing swimsuit,” a Warner Brothers representative said.
“We will base our casting decision on those photographs and which image will attract the highest numbers of our target demographic.”
Speculation is wild regarding the possible casting of the third co-host of the “Superhero Cinema” podcast, known as Michael, and who he may potentially play in the sequel. The most prominent internet rumors suggest he may be cast as Harold (the Batman’s mechanic), Thomas Elliot (a childhood friend of the Batman), or Harley Quinn (henchwoman of the Heath Ledger-played Joker).
Michael’s potential casting of the latter character will, according to sources, also be based on a rigid swimsuit test.
The film has begun its principle photography and is being aimed at for a June 2008 release date.
