Jada Pinkett Smith Set To Play A Villain In GOTHAM
According to Deadline, the Matrix: Reloaded actress will be facing off against Ben McKenzie's Jim Gordon as one of the villains in Fox's upcoming Batman prequel series. Who will she be playing? You'll have to hit the jump to find out!
Prepare for a shock guys, because Deadline report that Jada Pinkett Smith will play a female version of The Joker in Fox's Gotham Series! Okay, not really - she'll actually be playing an original character not based on anyone from the DC Comics named 'Fish Mooney', who's described as "an imposing, hotheaded and notoriously sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner with street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book who is not one to be crossed". If the name is familiar it's because Mooney was mentioned as the arch-villain whom Robin Lord Taylor's Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin) will be working for. Interesting casting to say the least I'm sure you'll agree. Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome) wrote the pilot script and will serve as executive producer on Gotham, Danny Cannon (CSI, Nikita) directing the pilot which is expected to air this fall.
