We have another casting announcement for Fox’s Gotham, and this one is unexpected. The Batman prequel series has brought Jada Pinkett Smith (Madagascar, The Matrix sequels) on board as gangster boss Fish Mooney. The character is described as “a sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner. Wielding street smarts and the almost extra-sensory ability to read people, Fish is imposing and hotheaded — and not one to be crossed.” She is the employer of psychopath Oswald Cobblepot, who will be played Robin Lord Taylor. Mooney will be a series regular role, and one of the show’s big bads.
Smith is certainly an impressive addition to the already highly anticipated series. Gotham also stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, and Erin Richards as Barbara Kean. The pilot is expected to premiere on Fox next fall. [Via TV Line]
