Logue joins a cast that just yesterday revealed four names, Fox and Warner Bros. Television have announced that Donal Logue (Sons of Anarchy) has been cast as Harvey Bullock in their upcoming series Gotham.
He was originally rumored for the Gordon role in a case of mistaken identity. His character is described as:
Jim Gordon’s partner and mentor. The rough-around-the-edges detective plays loose with police procedure, but he gets results … and he does it with old-school, forceful panache.
The cast includes Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, Sean Pertwee asAlfred Pennyworth, Erin Richards as Gordon’s fiancee, Barbara Kean, and Zabryna Guevara as Gordon’s boss at the GCPD, Captain Essen.
Under development from Bruno Heller (The Mentalist), Gotham will focus on a young Gordon as a detective in Gotham City in the years before Bruce Wayne puts on the Batman cape and cowl. The show will also include a 12-year-old Bruce Wayne as a character, plus appearances from classic Batman rogues including The Joker, Catwoman, Penguin and Riddler.
The pilot episode will be directed by Danny Cannon.
