We know that Michael Chiklis will be in season 2 of Fox’s DC comic series, but now we have an image of Michael Chiklis as Nathaniel Barnes in Gotham.
(warning: mild spoilers regarding Gotham season 1)
“[Barnes] lands on the GCPD like a tornado,” reads the official description of the Michael Chiklis Gotham character, “ripping out the dead wood of Gotham’s police force. He is a law and order zealot; unafraid of making enemies – on either side of the law. For Gordon, Barnes is a hero and a mentor, someone with whom he can share the burden of heroism. Captain Barnes proves himself to be a strong ally to Gordon… but one day he will make an equally powerful enemy.”
With some of the baddies, including Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Fish Mooney, gone after the season 1 finale, there’ll not only be more baddies, as we’ve previously posted about, but there will be this guy. I’m hoping Chiklis’ presence in the Gotham PD will shake things up more, and hopefully get things more thrilling for this origin series.
Chiklis will debut in season 2’s second episode, titled “Strike Force”. Gotham will premiere on Monday, September 22, 2015.
