Donal Logue, who was recently featured in an intense role in Sons of Anarchy, has been offered the role of Gordon in GOTHAM. Latino Review broke the news....below.
Donal Logue has been offered the lead part of Commissioner James Gordon in Fox’s upcoming Gotham TV show which has been ordered to series.
Gotham, from The Mentalist creator Bruno Heller, explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains who made Gotham City famous. In the pilot, Gordon is still a detective with the Gotham City Police Department and has yet to meet Batman.
Just yesterday, Fox Chairman Kevin Reilly announced the news that the show will indeed feature a young Bruce Wayne (give me a minute & I will bag this scoop too).
“The show will arc a young Bruce Wayne from a child (around 12) into the final episode of the series, when he will put on the cape. We will see how they get to become who they are as Gotham is teetering on the edge. It is an operatic soap that has a slightly larger-than-life quality.”Donal Logue is not only a really good actor you have seen in movies like Blade and on television shows like Sons Of Anarchy, but an absolutely excellent choice to headline the Gotham TV show. I highly recommend you check him out in a hot indie that was at Sundance a while back called The Tao Of Steve.
