Fans may have scoffed at Fox’s idea of putting a comic book cop drama into production based on the early days of Commissioner Gordon, but you have to admit that the casting so far has been inspired. First, the network landed Ben McKenzie as a young Jim Gordon, and that was then followed up yesterday with some interesting choices for the Penguin and Alfred.
Now, according to Variety, Donal Logue (Sons of Anarchy) has joined the show as Harvey Bullock, a character most fans will remember from his supporting role in Batman: The Animated Series. In this series, simply titled Gotham, Bullock is described as “the rough-around-the-edges partner of the future Commissioner Gordon, played by McKenzie.”
In the comics, Bullock is known as a cop who isn't afraid to break the law in order to get results. He’s constantly being investigated by Internal Affairs for brutality and corruption, which usually makes him a target for Batman’s wrath. Knowing that, this will be a role that Logue should be able to fill with no problem.
Gotham is set to begin filming on March 17.
