TV NEWS: Your First Look at Paul Reubens on Gotham

January 7th, 2016 by Irwin Fletcher Comments



It’s been months since it was announced that Paul Reubens would be joining the cast of Gotham as The Penguin’s (played by Robin Lord Taylor) father.

While Reubens is best known for his role as beloved, yet strange TV Host Pee-Wee Herman, but he played the Penguin’s father in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns in 1992.

Below you’ll see a photo tweeted by show-runner Danny Cannon.

Gotham returns Monday, February 9th on Fox at 8:00 PM/EST.

What do you guys think? Do you like the look of Reubens in the role? Let me know in the comments! I’m personally happy to see Gotham doing small things like this that are a call-back to the Batman movies a lot of us grew up loving.

Thanks to CBR for the scoop!
