Gotham - Jada Pinkett Smith Joins Cast!

Jada Pinkett Smith (known for many things including playing Niobe in two of the Matrix movies) has been cast in the upcoming Fox show 'Gotham' playing Fish Mooney "a sadistic gangster with street smarts and a short temper." = Penguin's boss.

The show will focus on a younger version of James Gordon, who is being played by Ben McKenzie. Other cast members include Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot a.k.a the Penguin.

The hour long series was written by The Mentalist’s Bruno Heller, and the first episode will be directed by Danny Cannon (CSI).

Personally I think this show has a lot to live up to, but cast members like Smith joining only makes its pull stronger for prospective fans!
