'Gotham' casts Nicholas D'Agosto as Harvey Dent/Two-Face

The city of Gotham is about to welcome another villain into the mix.

Nicholas D’Agosto (Masters Of Sex) has been cast as Harvey Dent in Fox’s freshman drama Gotham, EW has confirmed. Those familiar with the Batman series will know that Dent becomes the hideous villain Two-Face. D’Agosto will recur for the rest of the first season with an option to become a regular in season 2.

Dent is described as a “bright, charming, idealistic Assistant District Attorney” trying to rid Gotham of its crime. Dexter alum David Zayas has already been tapped to play mob boss Salvatore Maroni, the man responsible for disfiguring Dent and his transformation. Aaron Eckhart played the role of Dent in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.

New 'Gotham' trailer previews entire season, introduces Victor Zsasz

If you thought the origin story of Gotham would be anything but dark and twisty, then you should take a moment and prepare yourself for what comes next.

In a new trailer for Gotham‘s first season, we get a more in-depth glimpse into the world that poor Jim Gordon is trying to save. From Bruce Wayne’s attempts to “understand how Gotham works” to Oswald Cobblepot’s journey from bad to worse, the trailer offers insight into a world we’ve only just begun to understand.

And in addition to the characters and themes we already know, the trailer also introduces Victor Zsasz, along with a rivalry between Falcone and Maroni, and finally, plans to tear down Arkham Asylum for Arkham City. From there, comic fans can pull out a number of other teases:

The Riddler on 'Gotham' villain theories and going green

The first season of Fox’s ambitious new comic-book drama Gotham is all about the Penguin’s rise to power, but there’s another would-be villain lurking in the shadows. Cory Michael Smith plays Ed Nygma, the man who will become Gotham City’s quiz-happy Riddler… eventually.

For now, Ed’s a forensic scientist working with Gotham PD, which adds a twist of intrigue to his inevitable transformation into villainy. On the show’s Brooklyn set, EW sat down with Smith to get a hint of what we can expect from his Riddler.

EW: How do other Riddlers come into play for your interpretation?
CORY MICHAEL SMITH: Well, there’s Frank Gorshin, of course, whose performance was lauded. I’ve seen clips of him and his work, and I have great respect for his contribution to that show and how celebrated it is, but I certainly haven’t watched enough that it would actually impact the choices I make. And I never watched Batman Forever so I haven’t seen Jim Carrey’s performance.

No way. You never saw Carrey as the Riddler?
The thing is, he’s one of my idols! I love him, I think he’s brilliant, and as a kid he was a huge reason why I wanted to be an actor. But I’ve never seen Batman Forever. And I think it was really just the universe telling me not to watch it because this is my fate. [Laughs] I’m essentially paying most attention to the comics. READ FULL STORY

Ben McKenzie previews the 'swift and brutal' world of 'Gotham'

In today’s world of comic-book remakes, it’s rare that an actor gets to portray multiple characters within any given universe. It’s even more rare that an actor gets to take part in a story that hasn’t been told before. But Ben McKenzie has done both.

In 2011, McKenzie got the chance to voice an animated Bruce Wayne in Batman: Year One, and three years later, he’s playing a young James Gordon in Fox’s upcoming series, Gotham. And despite the fact that Gotham is a prequel and therefore telling a new story, McKenzie is very aware of the “high bar” that exists for his character. But thankfully, McKenzie wasn’t asked to do what Gary Oldman did in Christopher Nolan’s films or what Bryan Cranston did in Year One. Instead, when McKenzie went to lunch with DC Comics chief creative officer Geoff Johns, they talked about McKenzie’s responsibility to the character, part of which was making Gordon “fresh.” So the next question was: How does one do that?

'Gotham' deemed 'most promising' new fall show

For the second year in a row, the Television Critics Association is betting on a superhero show. The TCA named Fox’s Gotham, which focuses on the origin stories of Commissioner Gordon and Batman’s legendary foes, the “most promising” new show of the fall TV season. The CW’s Jane the Virgin and Showtime’s The Affair came in second and third in the TCA poll. Gotham was also deemed the most promising drama, followed by The Affair and ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder, starring Viola Davis. ABC’s Black-ish topped the list on the comedy side, beating out Jane and NBC’s A to Z.

From 'Doctor Who' to 'The Leftovers,' TV tries to regenerate the hero

doctor-who

The corrupt cop. The principled drug pusher. The avenging serial killer. The vengeful peacekeeper. The romantic vampire. The heartless doctor. Television has been rotten with ironic or immoral protagonists for most of the new century, though the drama they’ve produced has often been golden.

But a marketplace correction appears to be underway. Grinchy detective Sherlock grew a heart in his latest series of films. Arrow gave up the killer vigilante for role-model vigilante. The new Doctor Who regenerated into an older and wiser Time Lord and declared, “I’ve made a lot of mistakes. It’s time I did something about it”—a line that also pretty much summarizes Don Draper’s arc during the first half of Mad Men’s final season, too. Sleepy Hollow—in which the dynamic duo of Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills sacrifice self-interest to save the world from America’s historical and supernatural demons—made chivalry and redemption sexy again. After the glut of rakes and wretches, narcissists and nihilists, there is ruefulness and rehumanization. An era of anti-heroes has surrendered—for the moment, at least—to atonement. READ FULL STORY

'Gotham' releases 21-minute look inside the new series

Fans know that Gotham is described as a Batman prequel, but what does that really mean? Well, in a new 21-minute video, the creators and actors behind the show sat down to talk about everything a “prequel” entails, from individual villain origin stories to the pressures that come with taking on iconic roles.

Watch as Jada Pinkett Smith introduces the new character of Fish Mooney, Ben McKenzie talks about playing a young Jim Gordon, and executive producer Danny Cannon poses the question at the center of it all: “Who are the supervillains in the city and how did they become that way?”

Ben McKenzie is 'the last good man' in new 'Gotham' teaser

Thus far, a lot of the talk surrounding Fox’s upcoming Batman prequel series Gotham has been about the villains—like the introduction of a new villain, Jada Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney, and the highly anticipated origin stories of other fan favorites like The Penguin, The Riddler, Catwoman, and more.

But what does a world full of villains and potential villains mean for the citizens of Gotham? Well, it means their lives depend on the guy Ben McKenzie calls “the last good man in Gotham” in a new teaser for the show: James Gordon.
