James Frain Joins GOTHAM Cast as
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from NBC’s Gotham series, based off of DC Comics’ Batman’s hometown. But we’ve just gotten news that Orphan Black‘s James Frain joins Gotham cast as Theo Galavan, a biliionaire, and better (or worse, I suppose) yet, is that he’ll be playing brother to Tabitha Galavan, the future super-villain Tigress (not to be confused with the Hunger Games character from the third book, Mockingjay.)
James Frain (The Tudors, True Blood) has been cast in one of the two new regular roles on the Fox series. He will play billionaire industrialist Theo Galavan. A new Gotham arrival, Galavan is the savior the city has been waiting for — he is sexy, heroic, and lovingly devoted to his sister Tabitha (yet to be cast). But behind Galavan’s altruism is a centuries-old vendetta. Galavan and Tabitha (aka Tigress) will take chaos and violence to a new level in order to bleed Gotham. Their plan will lead to the creation of new villains… and the destruction of others.
Sounds superb! Although James is already busy, having done recurring roles in both HBO’s True Detective and BBC’s Orphan Black, it looks like his character might have a more constant presence in the Batman spinoff series.
