House of Cards star Nathan Darrow is coming to Gotham! Darrow will play popular Batman villain Mr. Freeze, and we won’t have to wait long to see his debut. Gotham EP John Stephens told TVLine, “The first time we see Freeze is in December, and then we’re going to be telling a heavy Freeze story in Episodes 12 and 13.”

Gotham will focus on Freeze’s relationship with his sick wife Nora. Here’s the official character description:

“Though ferociously smart and eminently capable in his work as one of Gotham’s preeminent cryogenics engineers, Victor struggles to make meaningful connections with others. The one exception is his wife, Nora (casting TBA), who has tragically fallen ill with a terminal disease. Victor’s love for Nora knows no bounds, so as her condition worsens, he goes to extreme measures to figure out a way to freeze her before she dies. This harrowing journey leads to his transformation into the legendary DC villain, Mr. Freeze.”
