Hi, Bryan Here….
Since we now know that Ben McKenzie will be playing Commissioner James Gordon in Fox’s Batman prequel tv series called ‘Gotham‘, it was only a matter of time before we found out the other cast members. Fox has announced that Donal Logue (‘Sons of Anarchy‘ and ‘The Tao of Steve‘) will be joining the cast as Detective Harvey Bullock.
Bullock is Gordon’s rough and tough partner and mentor who doesn’t exactly follow the rules, but he gets things done. You can think of him as like Vic Mackey from ‘The Shield‘. I’ve always like Donal Logue, and I think he will be a perfect fit for this role. Logue joins a cast that also includes Robin Lord Taylor as the Penguin, Zabryna Guevara (Captain Essen), Sean Pertwee (Alfred) and Erin Richards (Barbara Kean, Gordon’s love interest). Casting for the young Bruce Wayne has not yet been announced.
Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly said the series will explore other characters from DC’s massive Batman cannon. “This is not one of the things where you bought a franchise and then none of characters people know,” Reilly said. “We will follow Bruce Wayne right up until the point where he gets interesting.”
