Earlier this week, we got our first look at Ben McKenzie in action as famed Batman character Jim Gordon in Fox’s upcoming prequel, Gotham. Despite the lack of ‘stache, McKenzie looked like he was adapting to his role quite well, and gave fans a much needed breath of relief that the team behind the series might actually pull of a Gotham series without the Caped Crusader. Now we can add to that relief with our first official look at Donal Logue’s version of Gordon’s mentor, Detective Harvey Bullock.
Leather jacket, classic hat, button down, tie, that’s just some old-school goodness right there. Logue looks spectacular as Bullock; it really feels like he’s going to breathe some amazing life into the character.
Fox has promised to release another character look tomorrow, but has not reveled who. Here’s hoping from some Jada Pinkett-Smith action.
Gotham, written by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) and directed by Danny Cannon (Nikita), will premiere this fall on Fox.
