Cory Michael Smith to join Gotham as The Riddler

April 1st, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

FOX’s Gotham has found its Riddler! Deadline reports that Cory Michael Smith ( Camp X-Ray) is set to play Edward Nygma with the character planned to debut in the pilot episode.

They also say that the character will just start off as a guest in the pilot, but that he could end up being a regular on the series.

This version of Edward Nygma is described as:

“a brilliant but socially awkward forensic scientist who’s eccentric and outgoing and desperate to be liked.”

Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), Gotham follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.

The cast includes Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle,   Grayson McCouch and Brette Taylor as Thomas and Martha Wayne, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth,  Erin Richards as Gordon’s fiancee, Barbara Kean, Zabryna Guevara as Gordon’s boss at the GCPD, Captain Essen, Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney, and Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean.

Gotham is based upon characters published by DC Comics and is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Heller wrote the pilot, which will be directed and executive-produced by Emmy Award nominee Danny Cannon (the CSI series, Nikita).
