Beloved shows never really die in this day and age. They just enter a limbo state, leaving showrunners and stars to spend the rest of their lives fielding questions from fans about possible revivals and/or movie sequels. A lucky few even get resurrected, like Arrested Development or Gilmore Girls or Full House, keeping hope alive for fans of the rest.
At a recent event, producers Ted Griffin and Shawn Ryan addressed the question of reviving Terriers, their wonderful but tragically short-lived drama starring Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James. The short answer is that they’ve talked about it — but the long answer is that they’ve have several hoops to jump through first. Read More »

Poor Jim Gordon. The guy really wants to clean up Gotham, and is clearly willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen. But in Season 1, he encountered, greed, corruption, and evil at every turn. And based on the fact that Season 2 is titled “Rise of the Villains,” we’re gonna guess that doesn’t really change in Season 2.
A fresh Gotham Season 2 promo and a bunch of new photos showcase some of the friends and foes Jim (Ben McKenzie) will be dealing with when the show returns in a few weeks. Of particular interest are new characters like GCPD captain Nathaniel Barnes (Michael Chiklis), billionaire industrialist Theo Galavan (James Frain), and his loyal sister / enforcer Tabitha Galavan (Jessica Lucas). Watch the Gotham Season 2 promo and see the new photos after the jump.

Entertainment Weekly has released a faux public service announcement with character actors explaining why you should care about “that guy from that thing” more than “that guy on the billboard.” Character actors are supporting actors who are usually skilled at playing interesting or unusual characters, but not usually the lead roles in a film. They are the unsung heroes of Hollywood. Watch the character actor PSA video embedded now after the jump.

Only time will tell which shows will emerge as the best of the 2014-2015 freshman crop, but certainly one of the most highly anticipated is Fox’s Gotham. The DC prequel series promises to reveal the origins of the Gotham City personalities we know and love.
That includes protagonist Jim Gordon, of course, and Bruce Wayne the future Batman — but also the troubled souls who will become Catwoman, the Penguin, the Riddler, Poison Ivy, and more. Get a better look at these not-quite-superheroes and not-quite-supervillains with a new batch of Gotham character posters after the jump.

The Batman prequel pilot Gotham is currently in production. While several spy photos have made their way online, Fox has just revealed the official first look. Interestingly, though, they didn’t choose the show’s star, Ben McKenzie, who is playing Jim Gordon. They chose his partner — here is your first Gotham Photo Donal Logue As Detective Harvey Bullock. Check out the full image 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.

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.
