Gotham Scoop: Donal Logue Cast as Detective Harvey Bullock in Fox's Batman Origin Series
Det. Bullock, a well-known DC character who makes his live-action debut in Gotham, is Gordon’s partner and mentor. He plays loose with police procedure, but he gets results — and he does it with old-school, forceful panache.
Logue joins a cast that also includes Robin Lord Taylor (as the Penguin), Sean Pertwee (as Alfred Pennyworth), Zabryna Guevara (as Captain Essen), Erin Richards (as James’ fiancée, Barbara Kean) and the aforementioned McKenzie.
The Gotham gig will not interfere with Logue’s recurring role as King Horik on Vikings, which kicks off its second season on Feb. 27.
Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) penned the pilot and will serve as an EP alongside director Danny Cannon (Nikita).Follow @MichaelAusiello
