Learn Who Plays Oswald Cobblepot’s Boss In GOTHAM!!
Jaden Smith’s mom has worked in TV before, on “A Different World” and the nursing drama “Hawthorne.”
As always, I will point out that “Gotham” showrunner Bruno Heller also masterminded HBO’s wonderful “Rome.”
Look! Press release!
We are pleased to announce that Jada Pinkett Smith (executive producer, The Queen Latifah Show; as an actor: The Matrix films, HawthoRNe, Collateral) has been cast in the series regular role of Fish Mooney in FOX and Warner Bros. Television’s one-hour drama project GOTHAM, which has a series commitment at the network.
Character description: A sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner, Fish Mooney’s got the street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book. Imposing and hotheaded, she’s not one to be crossed.
Additional project info:
Based upon characters published by DC Comics, GOTHAM is a drama exploring the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous.
Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome) wrote the pilot script and will serve as executive producer. Danny Cannon (the CSI series, Nikita) will direct and executive produce the pilot.
Series regulars cast to date are Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin).
