After weeks of speculation, the worst-kept Gotham casting secret is finally out, with Donal Logue closing a deal to co-star opposite Ben McKenzie in Fox‘s Batman prequel drama, which has a series commitment. Based on DC characters from the Batman universe, Gotham explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon (McKenzie) as an idealistic rookie detective in Gotham City, Bruce Wayne, and the villains that made Gotham City famous. Logue plays Detective Harvey Bullock, Gordon’s rough-around-the-edges partner and mentor who plays loose with police procedure, but he gets results … and he does it with old-school, forceful panache. Once a sitcom star, Logue reinvented himself as a drama actor with dark turns on BBC America’s Copper and FX’s Sons Of Anarchy. He is with UTA, Kipperman Management and attorney Shep Rosenman.
