We’ve previously seen him in set photos, but Warner Bros. and FOX just released the first official photo of Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon in Gotham. No glasses or signature mustache, but he’s still young. Let’s give him some time for his eyes to go bad, and to be old enough to pull of a great ‘stache!

Detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie – Southland): James Gordon grew up in Gotham City’s surrounding suburbs and romanticized the city — where his late father once served as a successful district attorney — as a glamorous and exciting metropolis. Gotham will follow the young detective’s turbulent and singular rise through the Gotham City Police Department as he navigates the multiple layers of corruption that secretly rule Gotham City (the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains) and will also focus on the unlikely friendship that he forms with the young heir to the Wayne fortune.
