Production will begin on the pilot for Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham very soon, and as a result casting is heating up. The network announced last weekend that The O.C. and Southland star Ben McKenzie will lead the series as James Gordon, future Gotham police commissioner, and now the show has filled out a number of other familiar roles. Robin Lord Taylor (Another Earth, The Walking Dead) will play the villainous Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin, Sean Pertwee (Camelot) is set as Bruce Wayne’s trusted butler Alfred Pennyworth, Zabryna Guevara (Burn Notice) will portray Gordon’s boss Captain Essen, and Erin Richards (Being Human) is set as Gordon’s fiancée Barbara Kean. Alas, no mention of Donal Logue.
