Another villain is heading to Gotham. Colm Feore (The Borgias) has been cast to play Dr. Francis Dulmacher, also known as The Dollmaker, in the Batman prequel series. The Dollmaker was first referenced in the second episode of the freshman Fox drama by Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) as being the figure behind the mass kidnappings of Gotham’s street children. With a zealotry bordering on madness, and aided by his genius-level intellect and vast medical expertise, Dr. Dulmacher pursues his demented researches, even as the bloody costs of his actions grow ever greater.
Feore, repped by Greene & Assoc. & the Coronel Group, has comic book bad guy credentials, having played Donald Menken in Amazing Spider-Man 2 and King Laufey in Thor. He will next be seen as the title role in the feature King Lear directed by Antoni Cimolino.
The Dollmaker character already was introduced on another DC-themed drama series, the CW’s Arrow, where it was played by Michael Eklund in an episode of Season 2.
