Gotham First Look: Paul Reubens Makes a Splash as Penguin's Dad

As revealed at New York Comic-Con, Paul “Pee-Wee Herman” Reubens will be playing Papa Kapelput on Fox’s Gotham, and now we have a first look at Penguin’s stylish sire — Elijah Van Dahl.

Series EP Danny Cannon shared the first photo via Twitter on Tuesday. (And no, that is not Kyle MacLachlan. It’s Paul Reubens.)

Reubens’ visit to Gotham actually marks his second turn as a Penguin’s pop, having first played the role in 1992’s Batman Returns.

Gotham resumes Season 2 on Monday, Feb. 29, where it will now lead into the freshman drama Lucifer.
