I gave up on Gotham in season one, and haven’t looked back. But some news out of New York Comic Con means I might have to reconsider my meh position.
Entertainment Weekly reports Paul Reubens will be guest starring on Gotham as the father of the Penguin, meaning he’s reprising the role he played 23 years ago in the best Batman movie ever made Batman Returns. Robin Lord Taylor, the show’s Penguin, dropped the good news during Gotham’s NYCC panel:
“So we’re all familiar with Oswald’s mother, the fabulous, fabulous Carol Kane. “We don’t know a lot about his father… We just found out that I do have a father. And he will be showing up very soon, and he will be played by none other than Paul Reubens, a.k.a. Pee-wee Herman! He’s playing my dad! What! The! Hell!”
Let’s us rejoice and dance!
Gotham airs Monday nights at 8PM on Fox.
