According to a scoop from El Mayimbe at Latino Review, Oswald aka the Penguin will be the first Gotham City villain to appear in the FOX television show GOTHAM. FOX is currently casting the role. However it is still not known whether we will be seeing Mr. Cobblepot as himself or whether he will adopt the name The Penguin on the show.




What are your thoughts on the news? Who do you think FOX should audition to play Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot?


Character Description: The Penguin is a supervillain who is known as one of Batman's oldest and most persistent enemies. Artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger introduced him in Detective Comics #58 (December 1941). The Penguin is a short, rotund man known for his love of birds and his specialized high-tech umbrellas. A mobster and thief, he fancies himself as being a "gentleman of crime;" his nightclub business provides a cover for criminal activity, which Batman sometimes uses as a source of criminal underworld information.

Funny, when I saw Oswald, a character in his 20's I automatically thought of Patton Oswald. He'd be perfect for the role!
