To be played on the Fox drama by Robin Lord Taylor (Another Earth, Accepted), Oswald here boasts the brains of a chess grandmaster and the morals of a jackal. He’s a low-level psychopath employed by gangster Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), concealing his sadistic lust for power behind an exquisitely polite (and polished) demeanor.

A Batman “prequel” series chronicling the life of fated police commish James Gordon, Gotham previously released first looks at Donal Logue’s Detective Bullock, “Catwoman” and Alfred, the Wayne family steward.
