If the name Benedict Samuel doesn’t mean much to you, you’ll definitely remember the face. Samuel is best known from the last season of The Walking Dead as the most problematic Wolf whom the survivors ever encountered.

today, FOX announced that they’ve just signed Benedict to play the role of Jervis Tetch, aka, The Mad Hatter. His turn on Walking Dead was impressive, so it will be great to see his take on the mad hypnotist/ iconic baddie from the batverse.

Here’s how the show’s producers describe the character in their press release:

DC villain Jervis Tetch is a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness. He arrives in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone’s guess just how far down the rabbit hole he’s willing to go in order to find her.
