LOS ANGELES, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Actor Ryan Phillippe will play the villain Two-Face in the upcoming Hollywood production of the "Batman Begins" sequel, "The Dark Knight."

The 31-year-old Phillippe will be the second actor to play the disfigured comic villain in a film, Teen Hollywood reported. Tommy Lee Jones did it in 1995's "Batman Forever."

"Brokeback Mountain" star Heath Ledger will follow in the film footsteps of Jack Nicholson, playing the infamous Batman villain, the Joker, in "The Dark Knight."

Phillippe reportedly beat out Liev Schreiber and Josh Lucas for the role of Two-Face.

"Batman Begins" co-stars Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman have already agreed to join "The Dark Knight," Teen Hollywood said, and Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman is said to be in talks to play the Penguin.
