OC and Southland star Ben McKenzie has landed the lead role of a young Commissioner Gordon in the Batman inspired TV series Gotham. McKenzie is a solid choice to take on the role, as he's been really good in the things that he's been involved with. This isn't the first time that the actor has worked in the world of Batman either. He also provided the voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman in the 2011 animated film Batman: Year One.
The series will show us Gordon's origin story along with the rise of Gotham City’s infamous villains. A young Bruce Wayne will also be featured in the series, and we will follow his pre-teen years to the moment when he puts on the iconic Batman cape and cowl for the first time. I hope the series actually runs that long! I guess they plan on it being really freakin' good.
It was previously reported that Sons of Anarchy's Donal Logue was offered the role of detective Harvey Bullock. There's still no word on whether he accepted the part or not. The pilot was written by Bruno Heller and is being developed with Fox and Warner Bros. TV.
