Is This the Future Joker of GOTHAM?

Some screenshots from the pilot episode of Gotham have hit the web, and a few of them feature an actor by the name of Jon Beavres. There's been a lot of Internet speculation that this could be Gotham's future Joker.

In the photos we see the character performing a stand-up comedy routine for the villain Fish Mooney at her club. She seems to be having a good time, and Chester Cobblepot seems somewhat amused by what the comedian is saying. 

There's no actual confirmation that this guy will be The Joker, but we do know the character is expected to show up at some point in the series. Why not make him a comedian? For those of you who don't recall, Alan Moore's The Killing Joke gave the villain a backstory that painted him as a failed comedian who turns to crime to make ends meet. 

Who knows how this will turn out? We'll just have to be patient and see what happens. Gotham premieres on Monday, September 22nd. Thanks to Bleeding Cool!
