Donal Logue Will Play 'Harvey Bullock' In GOTHAM

The Terriers actor was rumored to be up for Jim Gordon at one point, but it turns out he was actually in the running to play a different role entirely. Now it's official: Donal Logue will play Detective Harvey Bullock in Fox's Batman prequel series, Gotham.

Latino Review (you know, those guys that pull scoops out of thin air?) first reported on Donal Logue's possible involvement in Gotham, though they did incorrectly assume he was being looked at for the lead role of James Gordon. But now FOX and WBTV have confirmed that Logue has accepted their offer and has been officially been cast as Detective Harvey Bullock. This take on the character is described as 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." Gotham will also star Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot. We're still awaiting the casting of a young Bruce Wayne. The show is written by Bruno Heller and directed by David Nutter.

You know I was not really excited for this show at all, but with all this great casting I am really wanting to see this.

@ Reasonnn

LOL El Mayiambe is the modern Nostradamus!

GeneralZod1138 - 2/12/2014, 9:41 AM
NOW I'm in.

I remember him from that 2000 sitcom "Grounded for life". He's a funny guy.

Sorry to burst the anti-Elmayimbe bubble, but...
JoeMomma29 - 2/12/2014, 9:45 AM
Yeah this dude can play funny and serious, great casting choice.

MrCBM56 - 2/12/2014, 9:46 AM
Cast is really coming together great!
JoeMomma29 - 2/12/2014, 9:48 AM
You know I will crap my pants if this show becomes a hit.

LMAO!!!! Make sure to use adult wipeys........well just ask Gusto which ones to buy.

Nice to finally have Harvey in live action. I'd love to see the Earth One version eventually.

Cool. I think Rises missed a huge opportunity for Bullock. They could have easily replaced Foley for him.

Does anyone know when this series is meant to take place? Is it contemporary or sometime in the past (1980's/1990's) so that the adult Bruce Wayne is a contemporary?

Based on the casting so far, DC is really taking this seriously. Very encouraging.

Looks like David Morrissey let himself go a bit
Zordan - 2/12/2014, 9:59 AM
El Mayimbe clarified that.
REALELMAYIMBE - 2/12/2014, 10:00 AM
El Mayimbe bags another one!
soforizo - 2/12/2014, 10:01 AM
Wasn't this known weeks ago?
ALegendaryPanda - 2/12/2014, 10:01 AM
I'm starting to get a really good feeling about this show.
soforizo - 2/12/2014, 10:04 AM
Good cast for the show though; not as exciting as The Flash's crew, but interesting. But lack of Batman is what makes me uncertain of this show.
Dedpool - 2/12/2014, 10:05 AM
Interesting take on the character. But I like.
charlie2094 - 2/12/2014, 10:05 AM
Getting more excited about this show, seems like great casting!

Praetorian - 2/12/2014, 10:18 AM
He'll be a good Bullock
Praetorian - 2/12/2014, 10:19 AM
I don't see the point of this show.
TheClemster - 2/12/2014, 10:19 AM
@ Gust

Heard the reception was bad though in Murica

Godzillafart - 2/12/2014, 10:22 AM
That's a better fit. Logue is a great actor.
DrNomid - 2/12/2014, 10:23 AM
El Mayiambe corrected himself and I quote:
"FANBOY NATION! I have an update on the Donal Logue/Gotham story. I was wrong. My bad. He actually got offered DET HARVEY BULLOCK."

That was on January 17th
Godzillafart - 2/12/2014, 10:24 AM
And, if you haven't seen Terriers, do yourself a favor and check it out.
Ineedrevelation - 2/12/2014, 10:26 AM
First good choice to come out of this debacle or a tv show choice DC/WB.

Logue's a fantastic actor. Can't wait to see how he and McKenzie play off of each other.
