Heroes Alum Milo Ventimiglia Joins the Cast of Gotham as a Super Gross Villain

The press release says Ventimiglia’s role will be “a multiple-episode recurring arc.” But as which DC Comics character?
None of them, actually. From the press release:
Appearing first in episode 19, Ventimiglia will play Jason Lennon, aka the Ogre.
Handsome, wealthy and seductive, the Ogre is a serial killer who has been preying on the young women of Gotham for nearly a decade, luring them into his web and confronting them with a series of “tests” as he searches for his perfect mate. When the women fail to live up to his impossible standard, Lennon disposes of them quickly and viciously.
His obsessions, combined with Gordon’s determination to bring him down, send both Gordon and Lennon — and those around them — on a course toward tragedy.
So that… kinda gross. I’m happy to see the show taking more initiative to get away from the classic Batman villains but I really don’t like the sound of this villain specifically. What do you think?
