GOTHAM Casts Its Bruce Wayne And Catwoman
The final two regulars for Fox‘s Gotham series have been found. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the upcoming series focusing on a younger Jim Gordon as he navigates the weird and corrupt streets of Gotham has found its Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, better known to all as Catwoman.
According to THR, David Mazouz (Kiefer Sutherland‘s son on Touch) has been cast as the young Bruce Wayne. The site describes the son of Thomas and Martha Wayne as a preteen sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his parents. He is “serious and soulful, and relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) and James Gordon (Southland‘s Ben McKenzie).” Mazouz impressed Fox with his role in Touch, so they were apparently eager to work with the young actor again. This will be a huge role for the actor that will play out for years as long as Gotham is on the air. It has been said that the series will end when Bruce actually becomes Batman, so whether or not that means it’s Mazouz will depend on how long the series runs.
It is also reported that relative newcomer Camren Bicondova will play Selina Kyle. The series will be introducing younger versions of Batman‘s notorious rogues before they become the people we know from the comics, so Bicondova will join the recently announced Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) as the first two big name villains on the series. Selina is described as “a teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. She’s a street thief and skilled pickpocket who is dangerous when cornered.” Some of the actress’ credits include Girlhouse and Battlefield America.
The two actors join Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Zabryna Guevara as Capt. Essen, Erin Richards as Gordon’s gal pal, and Jada Pinkett Smiith as Fish Mooney. Now that the cast is in place, what do you think about Gotham?
