'Gotham' Casts One of TV's Most Lethal Show Killers as James Gordon's Partner
As rumors had predicted, Donal Logue (talk about someone who should be on more magazine covers) has officially been cast in DC’s Batman prequel, Gotham. He’ll play Det. Harvey Bullock, the partner of Ben McKenzei’s James Gordon (see the rest of the cast here).
The bad news is that, as fantastic as Logue is, he’s also a lethal show killer. He basically the male Summer Glau. Consider the following cancelled too soon shows: Knights of Prosperity, Life, Terriers, and Copper (OK. That last one was justly cancelled). He’s a regular in season two of Vikings, too, which does not bode well for a third season.
Still, we’ll take all the Logue that the television gods offer us, but the old school among us will always remember him best as Jimmy the Cab Driver.
