March 4th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

According to Deadline, Drew Powell (Straw Dogs) has been cast in a guest starring/recurring role in Fox’s Gotham.

Powell will play Butch Gilzean, described by the site as:

“The deceptively clever and ambitious second-in-command to sadistic gangster boss Fish Mooney.”

Based on characters from the Batman universe, Gotham explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as an idealistic rookie detective in Gotham City, along with Bruce Wayne and the villains who made Gotham City famous.

The cast also includes Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, Sean Pertwee asAlfred Pennyworth,  Erin Richards as Gordon’s fiancee, Barbara Kean, Zabryna Guevara as Gordon’s boss at the GCPD, Captain Essen, and Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney.

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.
