But before I talk about the latest villain cast for Gotham's pilot episode, I should post that other cast picture that was released.
After I had posted the first four cast member photos, FOX only went and released one of Benjamin McKenzie as James Gordon. It's as moody and atmospheric as the previous ones and while many have commented on the lack of a beard, it does look good nonetheless. Now we just need some promo pictures of Barbara, Fish, Bruce and Essen.
As for the villain in question - it's Edward Nygma/The Riddler and he will be played by Cory Michael Smith (Olive Kitteridge). A guest character in the pilot episode with the potential to become a regular later on, Smith's take on the role will see Nygma working as a forensic scientist for Gotham PD. He's described as an eccentric and someone who is desperate to be liked as well. Can't wait to see him in action.
