In news that makes clear writer-director Christopher Nolan shares our warm feelings about babe-a-licious thesp Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the handsome star of 500 Days of Summer and Nolan's own Inception has officially signed on to his next Batman film The Dark Knight Rises as mob heir Alberto Falcone.

Playing the son to baddie Carmine Falcone, embodied by Tom Wilkinson in Batman Begins, Gordon-Levitt's Alberto eventually becomes supreme villain Holiday, although whether or not Nolan plans to follow the storylines from The Long Halloween or Dark Victory, favourites of his according to /film, and show Alberto's transformation is yet to be seen.

Either way, snagging this role marks a coup for Gordon-Levitt who continues to impress, dabbling with bigger budget films and arthouse-style indie fare. »
