We’ve been getting some interesting news about the upcoming FOX series Gotham lately. We already know that the show will cover the early career of James Gordon, including his relationship with the recently orphaned Bruce Wayne. We also know that the show will focus on their relationship up until Wayne first dons the cape and cowl. Additionally, we’ve also been told that villains like The Penguin will feature in the show fairly heavily. The one big thing we haven’t known up until now is who is going to play James Gordon. Well, we have the answer.

Fox has announced that Ben McKenzie, best known for lead roles in The OC and Southland, will be taking on the task of bringing the early career of James Gordon to life.
