GOTHAM Casts THE TICK Actor Michael Cerveris As The DC Comics Villain Professor Pyg

As Gotham season four prepares to delve deeper into the the Batman mythos, the hit FOX series has added Michael Cerveris (The Tick, Fringe) as Lazlo Valentin a.k.a. Professor Pyg. Come take a look!

TV Line is reporting that Tony Award-winning actor Michael Cerveris has signed on to play classic Batman villain Lazlo Valentin a.k.a. Professor Pyg in the upcoming fourth season of FOX's hit superhero prequel series Gotham.

Details on his multi-episode arc remain under wraps, but with the Scarecrow also coming to town, it wouldn't be a stretch to assume that we're on the cusp of seeing one of the series' most frightful teamups yet. 

Outside of his work on Broadway, Cerveris is probably best known for his roles on Fringe, The Good Wife, and most recently, The Tick. Additionally, when Warner Bros. was in the midst of casting Man of Steel, he was rumored to be a contender for Lex Luthor.
