Broadway Stars John Gallagher Jr and Thomas Sadoski Also On Board For HBO PilotOn the special features of the DVD for "The Social Network," actor Josh Pence admits that he was devastated when he discovered that he'd been cast in a major role in a new David Fincher film, but that his face and voice would never be heard on screen. Pence provided the body of Tyler Winklevoss, but co-star Armie Hammer's face was digitally inserted on the body, to maintain the illusion of identical twin-dom. But the graciousness of Hammer and Fincher on the publicity circuit ensured that Pence's name got out there, and he hasn't done too badly off it, landing supporting roles in two of next summer's biggest movies: as Chief Moore in Peter Berg's "Battleship," and as the younger version of Liam Neeson's character Ra's Al Ghul in "The Dark Knight Rises."

Are you the parent of some tweenagers who desperately want to see "The Hangover Part II" but aren't yet old enough to see the raunch of the film? Not to worry, something more age appropriate is around the corner.

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.
