Actor Ben McKenzie tweeted the first official image of him as Gotham’s James Gordon just moments ago, and it marks a slightly new look for the beloved future Commissioner. Young and fresh-faced, this Gordon has yet to run into the rampant crime and corruption that’s inherent in Gotham’s DNA.



The Gotham pilot is executive-produced by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome) and Danny Cannon (CSI series, Nikita, The Tomorrow People). Cannon is directing the pilot episode from a script by Heller.

Based upon characters published by DC Entertainment, Gotham is from Warner Bros. Television. The project has a series commitment at FOX.
