Fox’s Gotham series has finally named their big (little) star. Hit the jump for more including our newest “Catwoman” and more.
After searching for an actor with just the right qualities, the creators of Gotham have settled on 12-year-old David Mazouz to play the boy who will grow up to be Batman. He’s had roles on The Office, Criminal Minds (where the perfect image above comes from, sans Doge), and Touch. The Hollywood Reporter writes, “Young Bruce is described as serious and soulful, and relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) and James Gordon (Southland‘s Ben McKenzie).”
They’ve also found an actress to play a young Selina Kyle, the eventual Catwoman. Relative newcomer Camren Bicondova will bring her to life on the series and THR describes this Selina as “a teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. She’s a street thief and skilled pickpocket who is dangerous when cornered.” Bicondova’s father is a Navy chief (something she’s very proud of) and has been dancing since she was six. And just look what we found on her twitter page…

Meanwhile, our new Harvey Bullock, Donal Logue told Nerd Repository, “What I do love about Gotham, that I can say so far, is that it creates this incredible world that, for me, you can step into things that almost feel like the roaring ’20s, and then there’s this other really kind of heavy Blade Runner vibe floating around. It has this anachronistic element to it where it feels like it’s either New York in the ’70s, or it kind of exists independently of time and space in a way, and you can dip into all of these different genres. So I’m excited by it.”
