Jada Pinkett Smith will play the big villain in the upcoming season of Gotham, slated to debut on FOX later this year…
The casting news for FOX’s upcoming show ‘Gotham‘ continues to break on almost a daily basis with the latest addition being the main antagonist for the first season.
Jada Pinkett Smith — best known for her roles in Hawthorne and two Matrix sequels — will play the role of Fish Mooney in the upcoming Batman prequel featuring James Gordon in his pre-commissioner days. TVLine.com first reported the news.
Fish Mooney is a gangster and nightclub owner who employs a low level wanna be named Oswald Cobblebot aka The Penguin.
The new series, which is getting a major push from FOX for obvious reasons, will shoot over the summer for a fall debut date. ‘Gotham‘ will follow the exploits of Gordon in a city without a Batman. The series will feature a young Bruce Wayne, but that’s one piece of casting that hasn’t been decided yet.
