Joseph Gordon-Levitt will step into the role of Alberto Falcone — aka The Holiday Killer — for "The Dark Knight Rises," Variety reports.

The Holiday Killer — first introduced in the comics in 1996 — is known for killing on holidays and leaving behind a small item representing that holiday at every crime scene. Alberto is the son of organized-crime chief Carmine Falcone, whom Tom Wilkinson portrayed in 2005's "Batman Begins."
