SONS OF ANARCHY's Donal Logue Weighs In On Harvey Bullock And GOTHAM
Donal Logue (Sons of Anarchy), who will be playing Detective Harvey Bullock in Fox's upcoming Gotham show, recently set some time aside to talk with the guys over at nerdrepository. Come listen to him chat about character development, Batman: The Animated Series and more After the Jump!
When stated about how he was first rumored to play Jim Gordon, then debunked it and was then announced as Detective Bullock, Sons of Anarchy star Donal Logue said, "I'm really happy. It’s great, and Ben McKenzie is fantastic. It’s funny because I don't know how that went down. The truth is that I had met them a long time ago to talk to them about the project. All we had was a conversation, and it was funny when these rumors came out because they were unfounded in that Gordon was always supposed to younger and Bullock was older, so it was never a possibility for Gordon. Bullock was a possibility, but it was part of this vague conversation, and there never was an offer or something like that."
"It also puts them in a tricky spot because on something this big, with Warner Bros. and DC and everything, there are a lot of different people that weigh in on who’s going to be in it. When I finally did get an offer, which was very recently, they were very apologetic because they felt in a weird way that it was dragging through a weird rumor mill that was slightly awkward, you know? I knew that they were interested, I just knew that there were other people in the mix too, and until certain things were taken care of they couldn't make decisions."
When mentioned about the several different interpretations of Detective Bullock between Comics and the fan-loved Batman: The Animated Series, Donal Stated: "It’s dangerous, because my kids watched the animated series and I remember listening to it over the speaker on road trips up to Oregon, I would hear it. It's that tricky thing where I'm not that guy, I don't look visually like the guy even in the cartoon. And then there's that weird thing where I don't want to take someone’s choice from the cartoon and match it. I want to create a character, no different from Lee Toric in Sons of Anarchy or King Horik from History's Vikings or Hank Dolworth in Terriers. They're all uniquely different scenarios and I don't want to feel forced to do an impersonation of something else, which is a difficult thing to keep up over the course of a longer series."
