Hollywood is full of iconic movie roles that have been taken on by multiple actors, with Batman being one of the most prominent examples. Some of the actors who've played the superhero over the years include George Clooney and Christian Bale.

Previously portrayed by Aaron Eckhart, it seems reasonable to assume that with his infectious smile McConaughey could do an excellent job of portraying Dent's likeable side and as his role in True Detective shows, he's also got a knack for portraying troubled characters too.

This is the moment McConaughey won Best Actor at the Oscars: 

Wegotthiscovered speculated that if there is a sequel to this movie, it could result in some serious character development for Dent as a scrapped plotline from The Dark Knight saw him transform into his villainous form in the third installment, meaning that viewers could learn more about what exactly led to his fall from grace.
