Alexander Siddig will play Ra’s al Ghul on ‘Gotham’

Ra’s al Ghul is coming to Gotham!

Game of Thrones actor Alexander Siddig has been cast in the role. Here’s what fans can expect when he shows up later this season:

As Bruce (David Mazouz) pulls the veil off the Court of Owls, he finds the man pulling the strings is the enigmatic and powerful Ra’s al Ghul. With his past shrouded in mystery, Ra’s al Ghul uses cunning and deception to lay waste to his foes. As the leader of an international criminal organization known as the League of Shadows, Ra’s al Ghul will prove himself to be Bruce’s most dangerous adversary yet.

Liam Neeson played Ra’s al Ghul in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, and the character has appeared on Arrow as well.

Gotham is currently on a winter hiatus, but it returns Monday, April 24, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
