‘Gotham’ casts Edward Nygma, aka The Riddler

Cory Michael Smith has been cast as Edward Nygma, aka The Riddler, in Gotham. He recently appeared in the HBO miniseries Olive Kitteridge.

In the upcoming FOX show, Nygma is a brilliant young forensic scientist working for Gotham PD and a penchant for speaking in … rather cryptic language. Inquisitive, eccentric and outgoing — yet socially awkward — he wants to be liked, but he doesn’t quite know how.

Cory Michael Smith only makes a brief appearance in the pilot episode of Gotham, but will likely return as a series regular.
