Gotham Finds Its Commissioner Gordon in The OC’s Ben McKenzie

FOX’s Gotham just got interesting.

When it turned out that Donal Logue had been cast NOT as Commissioner Gordon, but as the much more logical Detective Harvey Bullock, I breathed a sigh of relief. Now, with this news that The OC’s Ben McKenzie has been tapped to play a young Commissioner Gordon, I’m starting to get pretty excited for the show.

McKenzie rose to fame in FOX’s The OC, and then moved on to the underrated Southland for a time. Interestingly, though he appeared to be way too old to be playing a high schooler in The OC, he seems to have barely aged since, and doesn’t look like he’s 35. But that age is probably perfect for him to be playing a young Gordon who takes a 11-12 year old Bruce Wayne under his wing.

We know next to nothing about the rest of the show, other than it will feature various Gotham villains, but I am starting to think it might turn out to be pretty cool after all. I guess well have to wait and see, but fall can’t come soon enough.
