Here’s someone you’d not typically associate with the role of a villain, Jada Pinkett Smith, who will play Fish Mooney in the Batman prequel, Gotham.

Did you just turn your head to the side inquisitively? Me too.

From E! Online:

The character, which is original to the show, is described as a hothead “sadistic gangster boss” and owns one of Gotham’s hottest nightclubs. She’s got street smarts and “almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book.”

What kind of name is Fish Mooney, anyway?

I like the casting choice, and the big name to go along with Ben McKenzie, who will play Detective James Gordon, and Donal Logue, who is set to play the Commissioner of Gotham. (Here’s the rest of the Gotham cast).
