<font color=red>UPDATE!</font> GOTHAM: Commissioner Gordon Role Offered To 'Blade' Actor Donal Logue

According to El Mayimbe of Latino Review, Fox has set their sights on actor Donal Logue ("Ghost Rider") for the role of James Gordon in the new Gotham television series. Update! Donal has tweeted that this rumor is "not true."

The moment that plans for a Gotham television series were announced many people have been wondering who will take on the role of James Gordon. Latino Review's El Mayimbe believes he has identified the actor Fox wants for their pre-Batman television show.
Donal Logue has been offered the lead part of Commissioner James Gordon in Fox’s upcoming Gotham TV show which has been ordered to series. - latino-review

If Donal does accept the role he'll be judged against past actors that portrayed Gordon in a live-action format, such as Neil Hamilton in the 1960's Batman television series, Pat Hingle from the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher live-action films, and of course, Gary Oldman from Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy.
A 10-year-old Bruce Wayne is among the roles that are now being cast as series regulars on the upcoming Fox TV series "Gotham" which explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham City famous. Shooting on the pilot episode will get underway in March, 2014 and will center on Gotham City PD rookie homicide detective James Gordon who investigates the double murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. - Feature Film Casting

HUH! Well not so exciting........
Kurne - 1/14/2014, 7:43 PM
I HATED this guy in Sons of Anarchy (good actor tho)...
Gyasiman - 1/14/2014, 7:43 PM
No. Just no. Come on DC, you can do better.
Batman52 - 1/14/2014, 7:44 PM
It's not the actor it's just I thought they would tell us the cast of BvS.
Gyasiman - 1/14/2014, 7:46 PM
I don't trust Latino-Review anyway. Remember when that said Christian Bale was gonna be the star of the Justice League?

Take it with a grain of salt people.

A kind of outside the box choice. But its never a bad thing to get talent. So I think it will be a good pick if he excepts.
Kurne - 1/14/2014, 7:50 PM
Yeah what the heck, Mayimbe was making this scoop sound BIG big...
Ignition - 1/14/2014, 7:51 PM
He was great in Terriers and SOA.
BaneSmash - 1/14/2014, 7:51 PM
AOS ain't affecting MCU so I doubt it will do anything to the bat brand.
BaneSmash - 1/14/2014, 7:52 PM
I also hated his ass in SOA...... I loved how auto to his ass out!

Reasonnnn - 1/14/2014, 7:54 PM
@gyasiman they've been right since the holiday season.
Kurne - 1/14/2014, 7:54 PM
@BaneSmash - Yeah lol didn't Otto chib him then cut out his tongue? Best part of S6

I hope it's not true but I heard Joker, Catwoman, The Riddler, and penguin is suppose to be in the Gotham tv series showing their origin.
Nick56 - 1/14/2014, 7:56 PM
Yeah I didn't like how Elmayimbe hyped something that wasn't that big at all. A tv actor is unconfirmed to have auditioned for a tv role. Thats it.
Nick56 - 1/14/2014, 7:56 PM
He can pull it off. The rumour is just uninteresting.
Kurne - 1/14/2014, 7:59 PM
Oh wait no otto cut out his tongue before then got killed after killing torric
DraculaX - 1/14/2014, 8:00 PM
Interesting. I loved him in SOA, Terriers (Sucks it got cancelled after 1 season)and Grounded for life.

Take out the Mullet, throw some glasses and a stache and I can see it. Maybe.
DrDoom - 1/14/2014, 8:06 PM
no one is going to watch this show after the third episode
ColonelKilgore - 1/14/2014, 8:07 PM
Big shoes to fill. I mean Oldman? I'm sure he'll be good though. He was good in what I saw of Terriers.
JoeMomma29 - 1/14/2014, 8:08 PM
Yeah the only idea I like about this show is the origins of the baddies beyond that it sounds like it will be cancelled after seven episodes.
AimForTheFlatTop - 1/14/2014, 8:12 PM
Gordon should have gone to David Morrissey.
JDUKE25 - 1/14/2014, 8:12 PM
Guys I have a BIG DC CASTING SCOOP!!!!!! Get excited and pumped up!!!!! Are you ready for this exciting news that I'm about to bring to you?!?!?! It's BIG!!!! AND it's.....EXCITING!!!!!!

Donal Logue will play Commissioner Gordon in the TV Series "Gotham"

How excited are you!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Firgosaurus - 1/14/2014, 8:12 PM
Can't wait! Super stoked!
Firgosaurus - 1/14/2014, 8:13 PM
I would be more excited if Hermione Granger plays Zatanna.
VISIONaryNPa - 1/14/2014, 8:15 PM
this stinks on ice.
REALELMAYIMBE - 1/14/2014, 8:18 PM
You guys are such a trip! lol
GreenLantern519 - 1/14/2014, 8:18 PM
El Mayimbe pisses me off sometimes. "Hey guys I have a HUGE Casting Scoop! Yeah #DC #ApexScoopHunterPredator #Bagthebigones #Elephant" aaand it's the casting for a FOX TV Show that most likely will have nothing to do with the Cinematic Universe.
JDUKE25 - 1/14/2014, 8:19 PM

JoeMomma29 - 1/14/2014, 8:20 PM
Uh! Oh!! You guys are going to get now!!!!!
typicalfanboy - 1/14/2014, 8:24 PM
really? this guy? isn't cranston not working?
GreenLantern519 - 1/14/2014, 8:25 PM
I get he's just trying to get a hype train going, but still, it's irritating when you think he's going to give us the casting of a major character that we've all been waiting for (Luthor) and all we get is some stupid basic cable TV show casting.
Reasonnnn - 1/14/2014, 8:28 PM
Lol Donald Rogue is great. You guys are tripping balls.
yonny616 - 1/14/2014, 8:33 PM
@Nail You confused "accept" with "except". Just sayin'. :P

Also it was fun seeing the article develop. At first it was just a quote, then had pictures, then had a video, ect.

On-topic: I expected something more. So underwhelmed.
Batman52 - 1/14/2014, 8:34 PM
@REALELMAYIMBE I thought we were gonna get DC Cinematic not that the news you just gave us wasn't alright cause it is, but we just want to know what's going on with BvS that's all.
SuperCat - 1/14/2014, 8:34 PM
Like this dude. Great in "Sons of Anarchy."
ALmazing - 1/14/2014, 8:34 PM
Something tells me this might not get picked up after the pilot, just a hunch.
FirstAvenger - 1/14/2014, 8:35 PM
Meh interesting choice.
