Raymond J. Barry has been cast in a recurring role opposite David Mazouz on Fox’s Batman origin series Gotham. Barry will play the temple Shaman, a mysterious figure who enters Bruce’s (Mazouz) life with the stated intention of unlocking the potential of his own mind. While the Shaman says the fate of Gotham depends upon Bruce becoming the man the city needs him to become, the truth behind his intentions proves to be far more sinister. From writer/executive producer Bruno Heller, Gotham follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. Barry’s credits include Training Day, recurring roles on Ray Donovan and Ice, and The Purge 3. He is repped by Metropolitan Talent Agency and manager Bob McGowan.
