November 6, 2006 - Another day, another Dark Knight rumor. Now that The Joker has been cast, the rumor mill has been buzzing about who will portray D.A. Harvey Dent (a.k.a. the man who will be Two-Face) in The Dark Knight, the sequel to Batman Begins.

Just weeks after Ryan Phillippe dismissed talk that he was up for the role, Batman-on-Film.com claims that a new, heretofore unreported actor may be a contender to portray Dent.

According to a longtime "friend" of Batman-on-Film.com, Ethan Hawke (Assault on Precinct 13, Training Day) is up for the role of "a lawyer" in the Warner Bros. project. At 36, Hawke is about the right age for the young, doomed D.A.

Hawke's credits include Lord of War, Before Sunrise, Gattaca, Dead Poets Society, Reality Bites and Hamlet. He will next be seen in Richard Linklater's Fast Food Nation

The Dark Knight is slated to begin filming early next year for a 2008 release.

that'd be an ok choice. Better than Philippe at least

Cool. As long as it doesn't get to cluttered down with multiple villains like the previous horrors, and takes the time to explain the origins and motivations like Batman Begins did.

At least this time they don't have to explain the origin of Bruce/Bats.

That's as good a choice as any.
