    She's a top 10 actress in the world. While I often wish Nolan would work with a wider variety of actors, she'd make a fine addition to any cast.

    Perfectly said, @moviegeek. Solid actress, not an overly likeable celebrity in my opinion. People - myself included, at times - should differentiate between the two.

    Heard about this yesterday, Nolan keeping with his trend of using previous actors from his other films, and I'm liking this casting choice, Hathaway is a great talent and I really enjoyed her portrayal as Catwoman last year as well as her amazing performance in Les Miserables

    Hathaway cannot give a speech worth a damn, but that doesn't mean she's a bad actress. Far from it. She's excellent. The cast is shaping nicely for Nolan's next film.
