Finally, the world is getting the first look at Ben McKenzie in his role of James Gordon, the lead of FOX’s upcoming “Gotham.” He’s a clean-cut young cop who looks ready to take on the world.
FOX describes this version of Gordon as an idealistic rookie, a former football player and war hero. He’s partnered with Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), who knows how to play the game in Gotham City.
By the time Gordon becomes Commissioner, he traditionally has a mustache. Perhaps that’s where the series will end, if McKenzie looks good with one. “Gotham” is scheduled to air in the 2014-2015 season.
