We have more casting news for Fox’s Gotham series, and it confirms a previous rumor. It has been announced that Sons of Anarchy actor Donal Logue will play Detective Harvey Bullock on the Batman prequel show. The character is described as “Jim Gordon’s partner and mentor, a rough-around-the-edges cop who plays loose with police procedure — but he gets results with his old-school, forceful panache.” Ben McKenzie will play Det. Gordon, while other confirmed cast members are Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, and Erin Richards as Barbara Kean.
Still to be cast is a young Bruce Wayne, who will become Batman by the end of the series. Iconic Batman villains such as The Joker, Catwoman, and The Riddler will also get new origin stories in Gotham. Production begins this spring, and a fall premiere on Fox is expected. [Via The Wrap]
