Gotham will go “mad” with the addition of Benedict Samuel!
Gotham Season 3 is going down the rabbit hole with the introduction of Mad Hatter!
The show has cast actor Benedict Samuel to take on the troubled scientist Jervis Tetch, who goes down a dark path after his younger sister Alice goes missing from the streets of Gotham. He’ll do anything to get her home safely, including deploying his mind-control and torture devices. Like most villains, he suffers from dark delusions and a quirky tick: He speaks in rhyming patterns when agitated.
The character, who first appeared in comics in 1948, was inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland.
Benedict Samuel is best known for his role on The Walking Dead, where he played the “Alpha Wolf” that Morgan captured and mostly failed to rehabilitate. He’s also starred in Secret City, The Beautiful Lie, and Home and Away.
Gotham returns to FOX on Monday, September 19, 2016.
