Juno Temple’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ role revealed?

Back in March we learned that Juno Temple had joined the cast of The Dark Knight Rises, but there were very few details about her role. Variety described it as a “street smart Gotham girl” but a recent Total Film interview offers something more specific. According to the magazine, Juno Temple will be playing Holly Robinson, the young prostitute first seen in Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One. Here’s an excerpt from the magazine:

Then there’s the big one-The Dark Knight Rises, where Temple plays “street smart Gotham gal” Holly Robinson. Speculation has it that her Holly is the young prostitute first seen in Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One, and that she may be the sidekick to Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman.

Temple replies:

“I can’t talk about that. But I think it’s going to be fucking unbelievable. Christopher Nolan is awesome! There’s something really gentlemanly about him. He’s got an insane, incredible vision going on. Just getting the opportunity to work with him is awesome”

Temple didn’t elaborate on Total Film’s assumption, but didn’t correct the magazine either. Is it safe to assume Juno Temple will be playing Holly Robinson in The Dark Knight Rises? This could definitely fit in with Selina Kyle’s backstory. Let me know what you think in the comments.

    Looking forward to this… TDKR gets better by the second.

  • Nathan Kelevra

    Chris Nolan making this sound great each day….

  • Elvisionary

    Sounds likely

  • Michael Roberts

    so much people lol, got be like a 4 hour movie 

  • joe kerr

    so we still don’t really know who she’s playing

  • Tebay71

    God, she is so gorgeous!

  • TDKR2012

    Seems like Selina Kyle/Anne Hathaway has a good chance of being a stripper/prostitute if Juno Temple is Holly Robinson!

  • Joel Filomeno

    lol kind ironic her character was in batman:year one while she played a girl in a film called year one with michael cera and jack black, i guess the irony is complete.

  • I’ve seen a lot of speculation on Temple playing Holly Robinson before this.

  • Thejokersmiles13

    It’s is fantastic to hear the enthusiasm she has for the TDKR and I think we all knew this for some time since she got cast. I think she is goin to blow up in the next year or 2, she is very well on her way.

    I’m pretty sure she is Holly Robinson.At least,I hope so.Three things make it more likely:street smart Gotham girl,how Juno Temple looks is perfect for the role,Catwoman’s backstory

  • h4v0k_528491

    it still doesnt prove anything. just because it wasnt corrected doesnt mean she is holly bc if she said “i’m not holly” then we could do process of elimination so we still dont know untio the official announcement

  • h4v0k_528491

    plus, catwoman gets a sidekick and not batman? not that i dont like the sidekick thing because i dont really mind; just saying

  • Simon

    So… Selina is a hooker? Perhaps… But Holly Robinson would be a great fit for Temple. I guess the fans of Robin have at least the name in the movie, just not the character! Thank god, um, I mean Nolan, for that!

  • Isaac

    soooooooooooo much going on in this movie!!!!!!!! i think it is going to be “insane” and Mr Nolan will have suprised us all once again.

  • Veronica-bellotti

    Chris Nolan can do no wrong.He is a perfect actors dream to work with and for.(crikey,I’m sure his wife must find some trait with him)he must have some annoying habit that would make someone moan about him.

  • Cal

    I hope TDKR will prove some skeptics wrong, those who think Nolan is bad in casting female characters.

  • Guest

    There’s something that has caught my attention:The word:INSANE!!!Juno temple said it.And I remember Anne saying Nolan’s doing INSANE things in it.(Well,we know it,but hearing it several times from the cast involved is even more exciting)

  • BigNoseDog

    She looks like a blond Ellen Page. I guess the role was too small to offer to her. Plus it would’ve been yet another Inception actor, not that I have a problem with that. It gets annoying to hear people describe TDKR as a sequel to Inception. Same actors, but they’re playing completely different roles.

  • cap_n_jack

    It’s amazing how fast this sounds awesome again once people stop releasing than bashing set pics. July cannot come fast enough.

  • AquaBro

    I hope she is Holly, but this article proves nothing…

  • Sammy Doja

    Yeah I think she’ll make a great Fugg’n Ho

  • Thefallen83

    Call me stupid but… everybody already saying “this article proves nothing… etc” Erm… isnt the big ass question mark in the article headline precisely to denote nothing has been proven yet?

  • ha ha ha

    Gotta love a woman with a foul mouth.  If she is indeed playing a prostitute then she should be perfect in the role!
