The Social Network’s Other Winklevoss Twin Joins Dark Knight Rises

Good for Josh Pence! The model turned actor's most significant role to date was in The Social Network, where he played opposite Armie Hammer as the other Winklevoss twin in whichever scene they were shooting, then had Hammer's face digitally grafted onto his in postproduction. This time, though, he's the one who gets to take somebody's place: Pence is joining Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises as a younger version of Ra's Al Ghul, the character Liam Neeson played in Batman Begins. He'll be seen in several flashbacks, strongly suggesting the rumors that have Marion Cotillard playing daughter Talia Al Ghul in the film may have something to them. (Also, between Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and those two, that could be a whole lotta villains.) [Heat Vision/HR]
