Gotham Enlists Milo Ventimiglia for Major, Villainous Recurring Role

Gotham Milo Ventimiglia

Milo Ventimiglia is switching to the dark side.

The Heroes alum will recur on Season 1 of Fox’s Batman prequel Gotham as Jason Lennon, a serial killer known as the Ogre.

Jason — who shares a nickname with a DC Comics creation, but is not from the canon — is described as handsome, wealthy and seductive. He has been preying on the young women of Gotham for nearly a decade, luring them into his web and confronting them with a series of “tests” as he searches for his perfect mate. When the women fail to live up to his impossible standard, Lennon disposes of them quickly and viciously.

Gordon’s determination to bring down the killer sends both men — and those around them — on a course toward tragedy.

Ventimiglia — who next stars in the ABC drama The Whispers — makes his debut in Episode 19.

    Good casting. Looking forward to see him on the show.

  2. Chris says:

    Dang. My browser loaded up that entire headline except the show title and was hoping it would be Heroes Reborn.

  3. Azerty says:

    I wished he was cast for a young version of the (future) joker since they said we would learn more about him before the end of the season.

  4. Simon says:

    Oh yeah!!! I loves me some Milo.

  5. Marci says:

    He’s been a villain to me since Gilmore Girls.

  6. Jss0058 says:

    You’d think they’d want to focus on their MANY exsisting characters this season and wait to introduce yet another “major” character until season 2…

  7. lorna says:

    Loved him since gg. MAJOR FAN. Thrilled.

  8. april-ann says:

    Jess is all grown up and man, is he HOT.

  9. Joey says:

    I dunno but when I read that character synopsis, Jason Blood/Etrigan the Demon was the first thing that came to mind.

  10. Here hoping that the tragedy is miss Barbara’s death *o*
    Srry, but can’t stand her anymore!

    • Marilyn says:

      Have to agree with you on that. I find her irritating, rather than interesting. A demise would be greatly appreciated.

  11. keith says:

    Hes been a villain to me since American Dreams.

  12. Dawn says:

    Happy about GOTHAM, ABD XMEN!!!

  13. Penelope says:

    Ummm, so excited to see this! I saw him with his girlfriend in LA and he looks so delicious in person. I hope he keeps his hair and beard!

  14. Abby says:

    So this guy kills Barbara? His role won’t last much longer than her death, I’m assuming…he hasnt been booked on the Heroes reboot, has he?
