First Look at Donal Logue as 'Harvey Bullock' on GOTHAM Set

Yesterday, we got our first look at Ben McKenzie's Jim Gordon and Robin Lord Taylor's Oswald Cobblepot, and today we get peek at Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock. Plus, a closer look at the spoilery newspaper the Penguin was looking at.

Harvey Bullock is a Detective of the Gotham Police department in Gotham television series. He'll be Jim Gordon's "rough-around-the-edges partner and mentor. Plays loose with police procedure, but he gets results... and he does it with old-school, forceful panache." Bullock's first appearance was in Detective Comics #441 (June 1974). He was portrayed a corrupt detective that was instructed by Gotham City's Mayor Hamilton Hill to foul-up Jim Gordon's investigations by making mistakes and being careless" on purpose. Over the decades, there's been several different takes on the character. Sometimes he is portrayed as good, other times he's corrupt. Sometimes he is shrewd while other times he is oafish. As for Batman, Harvey usually is depicted as a staunch opponent of The Dark Knight, but that too has not always been the case.


Growing up in Gotham City’s surrounding suburbs, JAMES GORDON (Ben McKenzie, “Southland,” “The O.C.”) romanticized the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolis where his late father once served as a successful district attorney. Now, two weeks into his new job as a Gotham City detective and engaged to his beloved fiancée, BARBARA KEAN (Erin Richards, “Open Grave,” “Breaking In”), Gordon is living his dream – even as he hopes to restore the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid.

Brave, honest and ready to prove himself, the newly-minted detective is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue, “Sons of Anarchy,” “Terriers,” “Vikings,” “Copper”), as the two stumble upon the city’s highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. At the scene of the crime, Gordon meets the sole survivor: the Waynes’ hauntingly intense 12-year-old son, BRUCE (David Mazouz, “Touch”), toward whom the young detective feels an inexplicable kinship. Moved by the boy’s profound loss, Gordon vows to catch the killer.

Gordon looks kind of dumb in that first picture.
MexicanChinman - 3/18/2014, 6:40 AM
@WombRaider, how would Gordon be able to produce a hot ass daughter if he was a ugly as shit?
MexicanChinman - 3/18/2014, 6:41 AM
@JaiHo, it looks like he is breaking the forth wall.
GenerationX - 3/18/2014, 6:41 AM
Ol Harv don't look half bad! I think I will actually give this an honest shot
MrReese - 3/18/2014, 6:42 AM

MrReese - 3/18/2014, 6:43 AM
While I'm not 2 fond of it.I'll give it a shot.
charlie2094 - 3/18/2014, 6:46 AM
Harvey and Penguin don't look half bad, not overly fond of the look of Gordon, not much resemblance there...oh well, only a minor point, hope this turns out well
MexicanChinman - 3/18/2014, 6:50 AM
@MrReese, so true. The mother and her redhead daughter were fine.
typicalfanboy - 3/18/2014, 6:52 AM
Neckbeard instead of stache and glasses?
CaptShipwreck - 3/18/2014, 6:52 AM
He nailed it
IAmNotGroot - 3/18/2014, 6:55 AM
Idk what to think about this.
megabatfan - 3/18/2014, 6:55 AM
Question: How old is Harvey Bullock in the comics? Cause wouldn't he be a grandpa time Batman shows up in this show? I always assumed Bullock was just a couple years older than Gordon. But this looks like a huge age difference
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/18/2014, 6:56 AM
Nice!!! Donal Logue is a boss actor! Grounded for life haha!!! He was great on SOA
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/18/2014, 6:56 AM
I love the look of the show so far
MrSotoMan - 3/18/2014, 6:56 AM
.........*sigh*
CherryBomb - 3/18/2014, 6:57 AM
He's only a younger, rookie Gordon.
He'll get older and grow a stache and his eyesight will get worse too! It's no big deal.
He actually looks pretty good so far.
KrazyForKomix - 3/18/2014, 6:57 AM
Yes, I am basically a Marvel fan. However, I loved The Dark Knight, and am hoping this show does well. But honestly as little as Agent's of SHIELD has to work with, doesn't Gotham have even less? I mean pre-Batman . . . what are we going to see?
PunPun - 3/18/2014, 6:58 AM
If I took a steaming hot shit and filmed it all it would be better than this chickenshit bullshit.
GrayFox1025 - 3/18/2014, 6:58 AM
What is this non-mustached Gordon nonsense?
JoeMomma29 - 3/18/2014, 7:01 AM
I am actually excited to see this for some reason......
dckizzle - 3/18/2014, 7:05 AM
I hope he's a ass
Arrowhead77 - 3/18/2014, 7:05 AM
This is looking better the more I see pictures ....
BatManiac - 3/18/2014, 7:05 AM
So far, this is the only decent looking character in the show.

Gordon and Penguin look terrible.

Still, this isn't enough to save this crapfest of a show. The worst is yet to come.
Arrowhead77 - 3/18/2014, 7:08 AM
Gordon is young...the glasses and moustache will come later.
thewonderer - 3/18/2014, 7:09 AM
For the love of god, would it kill anyone here to show a little optimism?

Don't like the prospects of the show? Get the hell out.

I'm excited. Looking forward to it.
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/18/2014, 7:10 AM
There a lot of haters here
Nomis - 3/18/2014, 7:13 AM
I can dig it!
Natetrix79 - 3/18/2014, 7:13 AM
Yeah let him grow some facial hair, give him a goatee & in a 3 or 4 seasons give him the stache!!!
Chekkarma - 3/18/2014, 7:15 AM
Key word for this show...PRE-everything...I look forward to this show and seeing the characters evolve into what we all are accustomed to.
SuperCat - 3/18/2014, 7:15 AM
Great casting!
soforizo - 3/18/2014, 7:16 AM
Donal Logue looks good as Harvey

I would much prefer Gordon had a mustache, but that the sort of thing feels like nitpicking. What I'm annoyed at, is the idea of having those teens running regularly on the show (which I assume is the intention). They should've kept young Bruce for an episode, maybe two at most.

I do admit that I like the idea of GOTHAM possibly including Bruce's training years on the show (given the show ends up with him in the suit), but that only works if they intend to skip a few years and recast Bruce as they go along.

BatManiac - 3/18/2014, 7:18 AM
I'm sorry, but I'm not going to criticise Agents of S.H.I.E.L..D but let this slide because it's DC, like some of you guys are obviously doing.
sameoldthing - 3/18/2014, 7:19 AM
Donal is good in his roles. Guess he dies in VIKINGS tv show if he's in GOTHAM now.
Hope the city looks cool in this series,grim & gritty.
Also hope Gordon has hot redhead wife so we see where Batgirl gets her looks from.
mgeoff88 - 3/18/2014, 7:23 AM
Harvey Bullock looks great!

Jim Gordon doesn't grow a mustache until he becomes a hardened detective after many years on the force.

He wouldn't look good with a mustache at that age.

@MrReese Ha ha, I had a huge crush on his daughter!
BatManiac - 3/18/2014, 7:24 AM
You can't criticise Fox's X-Men or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D's Deathlok while praising Gotham's Oswald Cobblepot, and then expect me to take you seriously the next time you complain about the lack of source accuracy.

At the end of the day, this show has already done away with the reasons Oswald is even called the Penguin, and it hasn't even aired yet. He can't become Penguin if there is no reason to call him the Penguin.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/18/2014, 7:25 AM
Really great!
DestroyerofHaters - 3/18/2014, 7:26 AM
I forgive lack of mustache. Wouldn't feel very early in his career if he was already a late 30 year old with a family started/mustache. Apparently a lot of people have very little patience for a show that gives us the opportunity to watch some of the greatest villains of all time grow into who they are.
I didn't think Penguin would look like a full fledged penguin at the age of 20 something either. While Bullock is just nailing it. Hopefully he'll only wear different versions of that jacket/shirt/tie/hat every episode, wouldn't mind the nod.
I for one am excited by the idea for now.

At least until the fools start screaming "who cares if it isn't a shared universe!"
Why care at all? We're comic book fans.

"For the love of god, would it kill anyone here to show a little optimism?

Practice what you preach, dude.
CorndogBurglar - 3/18/2014, 7:30 AM
Bullock doesn't look dirty and sloppy enough.

Although i guess these would be his younger days, so I suppose it makes sense.
