Robin Lord Taylor instantly became a fan favorite when Gotham premiered last fall, for his excellent performance as Oswald Cobblepot… aka the Penguin. So what does Danny DeVito, who played Penguin in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns, think? He’s a fan! Here’s what he told Access Hollywood yesterday at the Television Critics Association Winter Tour:
“I’ve watched the show. I think he’s a very good young Penguin. He’s a terrific actor.”
When asked if he’d be interested in appearing on Gotham, DeVito didn’t seem too excited, though he didn’t flat out say ‘no’ either. “I don’t know about that. Again, it’s all about the schedules and the parts and like how the thing is written and what it would be and there are so many particulars,” he said.
FOX just announced that they’ve renewed Gotham for a second season. A brand new episode airs tonight.
