Latino Review is reporting that Donal Logue has just been offered the role of Commissioner Gordon Part in ‘Gotham’ and I’m thrilled to hear it. Logue is one of the best character actors around. He’s been quietly tearing up both the big and small screen ever since he really first made a name for himself as a sitcom star in Grounded for life around fifteen years ago. He’s continued to shine ever since in things like Blade and his recent turn in Sons of Anarchy.
The fact that he’s in his late 40’s means we won’t have to watch the early, early years of his career, and instead get to focus on the years in which his path crosses with a young Bruce Wayne. On that note, here’s what the chairman of FOX had to say the other day about the role that Wayne will play in the show:
“The show will arc a young Bruce Wayne from a child (around 12) into the final episode of the series, when he will put on the cape. We will see how they get to become who they are as Gotham is teetering on the edge. It is an operatic soap that has a slightly larger-than-life quality.”
