The Tracking Board says Grey’s Anatomy, Rescue Me and Law & Order t.v. actor Daniel Sunjata will play ‘important character to the story’ but that’s all we know.

I have to admit that I’m not very familiar with his work to even begin to speculate what his role may be and if it’s somehow related to the casting of a younger Ra’s Al Ghul. I’m shocked to learn that I’ve actually seen some of the shows he’s on and the films but I just can’t remember him standing out to me. Since I’m not so smart I must call in a “lifeline” to you my international friends! Who is he and who do you think he will play?

[UPDATE]: Variety is reporting details on this role.

Sunjata will play a courageous special forces operative in the Warner Bros. sequel, which will lens in Pittsburgh this summer. Additionally, Diego Klattenhoff has been offered the part of a rookie cop who is looking to make a difference, while character actor Burn Gorman (“Layer Cake”) is also being eyed for a supporting role in the superhero pic.

  1. Dudes probally got 4 min total screentime wearing a suit in a law office or Police station sharing a scene with Gordon or some shit.

    Do we know yet if “3rd Rock from the Sun” is playing a villan?

  2. I saw the episode of “Lie to Me” with him. He’s got that dark ‘i don’t care about anything’ kind of villainous acting style down pat. Basically he plays a criminal that knows he is a criminal, doesn’t care, and is confident enough that he can outsmart all of the cops. Whoever he is in this movie will make for a good addition to their gritty dark feel they’re trying for with the series.

  3. probably a small role. Nolan adds a lot of actors but some of them may only be on screen for a total of 5 minutes or less. The characters do play a part in moving the plot along though.

      1. I agree he was on my favorite characters on Rescue Me.

        And maybe Nolan will bring something special that we have missed cause I agree T.V. actors are usually average or play one role really well. And he will I think do well as a cop since he played a fire fighter before as well as a doctor which I did not know until just now. He can play that serving you community character well.
