The last two actors who played Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle have Oscars on their shelves. The next two would probably struggle to reach those shelves.
Two young actors have been cast as the eventual Batman and eventual Catwoman in Fox’s upcoming show, Gotham: Bruce Wayne will be played by David Mazouz, best known for the show Touch. Camren Bicondova, a dancer who appeared on America’s Best Dance Crew, will be Selina Kyle. Read more below. Read More »

Briefly: A few weeks ago there was a rumor that Donal Logue (Terriers, Sons of Anarchy) was the pick to play James Gordon in Fox’s Batman prequel TV series Gotham. Logue denied the report, and in the end Ben McKenzie was tapped to play the future commissioner of police. Then the rumor report changed, saying that Logue was actually offered a part other than Gordon: Detective Harvey Bullock.
Now Logue officially has that role, so he’ll show up in Gotham as Bullock, the cop who has been portrayed in a few different ways over decades of Batman stories. He’s been a gruff, brutish, corrupt partner assigned to Gordon when he first arrives in Gotham, and in other incarnations a loyal, if somewhat bumbling officer. Logue would have made a really interesting Gordon, but he’s perhaps one of the most obvious choices to play Bullock, so we’ll take it.

More Batman mainstays are joining the Fox show Gotham. Over the weekend, Ben McKenzie landed the lead role of Jim Gordon and now, producers have cast Oswald Cobblepot, better known as The Penguin, and Alfred Pennyworth, the Wayne family butler. Cobblepot will be played by Walking Dead and Accepted actor Robin Lord Taylor, while Sean Pertwee, who you know from Dog Soldiers and Event Horizon, will play Alfred.

Earlier this week, we heard that Donal Logue had been cast in the role of Jim Gordon in Gotham, Fox’s upcoming DC-based series. The Terriers actor quickly denied the report, but we had reason to take his demurral with a grain of salt; it’s not uncommon for actors to tell a bald-faced lie when asked about unconfirmed deals or highly secretive projects.
Well, now the word is that Logue was indeed telling the truth. He hasn’t been cast as Gordon in Gotham at all — because he’s been offered the part of Detective Harvey Bullock, according to a new report. Get the latest update on this show after the jump.
