'Heroes' alumnus Milo Ventimiglia joins 'Gotham' as villain Ogre

Another bad guy is headed to “Gotham,” causing trouble for the citizens of Bruce Wayne’s hometown. The actor best known as Peter Petrelli in “Heroes” is slated to play the charming psychopath.


“Wrapped ADR on ‘The Whispers,’ on my way to Gotham,” Ventimiglia tweeted.

This week was good news for the villains of “Gotham.” First, we heard that the Joker will be making his way to the hit Fox show. Now, it’s been announced that “Heroes” alumnus Milo Ventimiglia will guest star as Jason Lennon aka the Ogre in a multi-episode guest arc.

“Handsome, wealthy and seductive, the Ogre is a serial killer who has been preying on the young women of Gotham for nearly a decade, luring them into his web and confronting them with a series of ‘tests’ as he searches for his perfect mate,” says Variety. “When the women fail to live up to his impossible standard, Lennon disposes of them quickly and viciously.”

Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) aims to bring him down, which could only spell trouble for everyone.

Gotham” is a reimagining of origin stories from the Batman canon. These include teenage Selina Kyle, better known as Catwoman, and orphan Bruce Wayne aka Batman. Fans even get to see glimpses of classic villains Poison Ivy, the Penguin and the Riddler. However, according to Variety, the Ogre on “Gotham” bears no relation to the villain of the same nickname from the DC Comics.

Ventimiglia is no stranger to action-packed roles. He’s spent four seasons playing superhero Peter Petrelli on NBC’s “Heroes,” as well as reluctant assassin Ian Mitchell in the Crackle series “Chosen.” The actor has voiced Wolverine in the “Marvel Anime” series as well as Spider-Man Noir on “Ultimate Spider-Man.” This will mark his first time playing a DC Comics character, other than his guest appearance as Green Arrow on “Robot Chicken.”

“Heading to Gotham to see my friend Ben McKenzie,” Ventimiglia tweeted about his guest star role. “Add a little madness to an already great and intense show. Very excited.”

Fans can also see Ventimiglia in the ABC sci-fi alien drama, “The Whispers.”

'Gotham' actress Clare Foley says role as young Poison Ivy helps keep her kid brother in check

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Talk about a way to keep a young sibling in check.

Clare Foley, who plays Ivy Pepper in Fox’s Batman prequel “Gotham,” says she’s got her baby brother convinced that she is the future Batman nemesis — and she’s using it to her advantage.

In an interview this week, the 13-year-old actress said she thinks “it’s kind of funny” that 4-year-old Declan, the youngest of her four brothers, truly believes that she and the character she plays — the orphan daughter of the man framed for the murders of Bruce Wayne’s parents — are one and the same.

Her mom says Declan was so frightened at one point that they had to assure him that his big sister was the “good Ivy.”

As for her other brothers, Foley laments that she doesn’t get the same respect. Also Batman fans, they think it’s “very cool” she has the role but she says they realize that “I’m just their sister.”

In “Gotham,” which airs Mondays at 8 p.m. EST, Ivy becomes homeless after her dad is shot dead by police and her mother commits suicide. The actress says this sets the stage for the hatred the one-day villain develops for the Dark Knight.

“We are seeing the beginning of that relationship,” says Foley.

Two-Face Is Not Ready for His Close-Up, Gotham

Nine episodes into Gotham, the show has done a relatively savvy job of building its world for viewers, fleshing out the throwback versions of established Batman characters it introduced in the pilot. There are a lot of people to account for: Bruce Wayne, Alfred, Jim Gordon, Catwoman, Penguin, Riddler, even Poison Ivy (though she hasn’t showed up again). So why, why, why, so early on in the season, do we need to get a half-baked take on Harvey Dent, who will one day become Two-Face? His portrayal played into all of Gotham’s worst impulses: Everyone seemed to be winking madly at the audience for every second he was onscreen.

“Harvey Dent! You know, one day he’ll be Two-Face!” the show, essentially, screamed as Nicholas D’Agosto stalked around flipping a coin about as much as he possibly could. Dent has been portrayed a variety of ways over the years—there’s Tommy Lee Jones’s vaudevillian psychotic of Batman Forever, Aaron Eckhart’s fallen hero in The Dark Knight, the truly coin-focused crime boss of the ‘90s animated series, etc. D’Agosto is making the slightly unusual choice of lending him an unhinged air before his face is even scarred. His Harvey Dent screams in the faces of criminals maybe a little too gleefully, perhaps suggesting he’s halfway to schizophrenic even before any gruesome injuries.

Gotham‘s Big Prequel Problem


I’ve feared the introduction of famous Batman villains since Gotham kicked off, because it’s one area where the show has struggled to strike a consistent tone. The characterization of the Penguin so far has been great, and lil’ Catwoman is hard not to like, but every time the future Riddler pokes his cackling head into the frame, I groan and wonder how the show’s writers plan on ever making him intimidating.

D’Agosto is not my favorite actor, but I recently enjoyed his work as Ethan Haas in Masters of Sex. Still, he’s an odd choice for Dent, lacking that character’s inherent magnetism. Even Tommy Lee Jones, slathered in purple makeup for Joel Schumacher’s cartoon vision of Batman’s rogues gallery, played him like a showy Southern lawyer gone off the deep end, down to his mellifluous monologuing. Every time Gotham takes a chance on an established villain, it needs to find a unique spin that leaves an impression, and so far this isn’t it. I continue to dread the Joker’s introduction, although I imagine that won’t come until the end of season one at the absolute earliest.

Probably the most compelling plot in “Harvey Dent” had nothing to do with Harvey Dent at all, but with Bruce Wayne’s burgeoning friendship with little Catwoman. By the way, with Dent introduced as an adult, it’s clear that everyone’s ages on this show are going to be out of sync with typical Batman chronology, and I’m fine with that. The more Gotham wants to mess with tradition, the better off it’ll be, since then it won’t just be telegraphing the same plot twists fans have been enjoying since they were children. So if Dent is a grown-up when Batman and Catwoman are teenagers, I can deal with that.

Alfred is trying to teach Bruce how to fight to toughen him up, but Catwoman knows there’s more to winning fights than simple boxing skills, and she gives Bruce a real runaround after Jim Gordon drops her off at Wayne Manor (for some reason). There’s a cute romantic element to their partnership that just manages to skirt being corny by virtue of their chemistry.

This Harvey Dent screams in the faces of criminals maybe a little too gleefully.

I generally like the idea of Catwoman’s corrupting influence on a young Bruce—if he’s staying in Gotham, Alfred’s boxing lessons aren’t going to be enough to turn him into a bat-costumed crime-fighter. Batman’s push and pull with Catwoman, who stands on the other side of the law while sharing a lot of his values, has always been an important one in the Batman universe, so I approve of the show getting to work on that early. Plus, it’ll give Bruce more to do than just mope around the manor getting his hair ruffled by his earnest butler.

You’ll note I’m skirting the actual crime of the week on this week’s episode. That’s because it was by far the weakest of Gotham’s crime plots to date. Perhaps our cops needed a week off from the real tough stuff after all they’ve been through with Carmine Falcone and Sal Maroni. Even Penguin and Fish were rather sedate as they continued to set up their plans for citywide domination. But on a show that has made an effort to carefully build out its world, “Harvey Dent” felt like the first huge misstep. Here’s hoping it was just a bad first impression.

‘Gotham’ Trailer: 18 Key Scenes

Before Batman, there was Gotham. And during the “24: Live Another Day” premiere, there was a “Gotham” trailer.

Our first full look at Fox’s new Batman TV show sans Batman has arrived, and with it comes our first real impressions of Gotham’s assorted gangsters and gumshoes. There’s a lot of material packed into that two-minute trailer, but we’ve gone over it with a fine-tooth comb and picked out all the best details. Here they are:

Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, a veteran detective of the Gotham City Police Department.

Benjamin Mackenzie as James Gordon, Gotham’s newest rookie, throwing Bullock all kinds of Ryan Atwood shade.

Robin Lord Taylor, late of a one-off “Walking Dead” appearance, not faring much better as a bloody-nosed Oswald Cobblepot — also known as the man who will eventually become The Penguin.

Jada Pinkett-Smith as Fish Mooney, the awesomely named Gotham City gangster who serves as Oswald’s boss, and provides a huge thorn in the side for both Bullock and Gordon.

David Mazouz as young Bruce Wayne, on the most important night of his life.

Gordon and Bruce meet for the first time. It won’t be their last encounter, not by a long shot.

The funeral of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Just past Bruce’s shoulder is Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, the trusty butler who otherwise doesn’t appear in the trailer.

John Doman, alias William Rawls from “The Wire,” as … someone. Not really sure. We hear he has some night club suggestions.

More of Gordon getting his Ryan Atwood on. And by “getting his Ryan Atwood on,” we really just mean “getting it on.”

Gordon getting it on again, but with an entirely different type of gun.

Newcomer Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, future Catwoman, on the outskirts of Wayne Manor…

…as she spies young master Bruce on the edge of despair.

Before the Penguin…

Before Catwoman…

Before Riddler…

Before Poison Ivy…

And even before Clayface*…

…there was this awesome “Gotham” logo.
