‘Gotham’ casts Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face

TVLine reports that Nicholas D’Agosto has been cast in Gotham as the recurring role of Harvey Dent, the idealistic Assistant District Attorney destined to become the villainous Two-Face. D’Agosto is probably best known for his role on Showtime’s Masters of Sex.

Gotham’s Harvey Dent is described as “handsome, warm and engaging,” constantly maintaining a sunny disposition even when dealing with the city’s seediest riffraff.

In July, Gotham executive producer Bruno Heller had the following to say about Harvey Dent:

We’re playing Harvey Dent slightly older. He’s more Gordon’s age in this telling. One of the things to avoid in order not to tell a high school story — which would be great, but it’s a different show on a different network at a different time that I would not be a part of. But he will go back to school and villains will be part of that world.
