‘Gotham’ casts The Penguin, Alfred, and more

Just days after the announcement that Ben McKenzie will play Gordon, The Hollywood Reporter has news on more of the cast of FOX’s upcoming TV show Gotham.

Robin Lord Taylor will play Oswald Cobblepot… aka The Penguin. THR says that he has the brains of a chess grandmaster and the morals of a jackal who is a low-level psychopath for gangster Fish Mooney who hides his sadistic lust for power behind an exquisitely polite demeanor.

Sean Pertwee will play Alfred Pennyworth. THR says that in Gotham, the character is a tough-as-nails ex-Marine from East London, who has loyally served the Wayne family. Now, in the wake of their tragic deaths, he is fiercely protective of the young Bruce Wayne.

Zabryna Guevara will play Captain Essen, rookie Gordon’s boss at the Gotham City Police Department Homicide Squad, who balances the two worlds of police and politics with a Machiavellian skill that is as much corporate litigator as cop.

Erin Richards will play Barbara Kean, a sophisticated ER doctor, who is engaged to marry Gordon. She’s joyful but with an edge of vulnerability who stands by her future husband… which can be difficult in a world as corrupt as Gotham.

Are you familiar with any of these actors work? Looking forward to Gotham this fall? Let me know in the comments below!
