Armie Hammer's Non-Digital 'Social Network' Twin Josh Pence Joins 'The Dark Knight Rises'

Well, this is some pretty good karma. Josh Pence had perhaps the most unenviable role of any actor last year. He starred in David Fincher's "The Social Network" but you didn't see him. Why? He was the guy who had his head digitally replaced by Armie Hammer who played both Winklevoss twins. Bummer. But he was a good sport about it all and it looks like he's about to get some face time (ha!) in one of the biggest movies of 2012.

Well, this is some pretty good karma. Josh Pence had perhaps the most unenviable role of any actor last year. He starred in David Fincher's "The Social Network" but you didn't see him. Why? He was the guy who had his head digitally replaced by Armie Hammer who played both Winklevoss twins. Bummer. But he was a good sport about it all and it looks like he's about to get some face time (ha!) in one of the biggest movies of 2012.

THR reports that Pence has joined Christopher Nolan's final Batman film, "The Dark Knight Rises" and more intriguingly, he'll be playing a young Ra's Al Ghul in a flashback sequence set 30 years prior to the events in the film. And while rumors have flown left and right about what the story will entail, this is the biggest indication yet that it will circle back to "Batman Begins," wrapping the story back up where it started.

Pence joins a solid cast including Christian Bale, Tom Hardy (as Bane), Anne Hathaway (as Catwoman/Selina Kyle), Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Juno Temple and likely Marion Cotillard who was in discussions (though she is not yet confirmed, but rumored to play Ra's daughter Talia).

"The Dark Knight Rises" hits cinemas on July 20, 2012.
