Here's Who the Batman Prequel 'Gotham' Cast As Its Sadistic Gangster Boss

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).

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
