Also joining the series, Zabryna Guevara and Erin Richards.

The press release issued by FOX follows :

Robin Lord Taylor (Another Earth, Accepted, The Walking Dead) has been cast as Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin). Character description: With the brains of a chess grandmaster and the morals of a jackal, Oswald Cobblepot is a low-level psychopath (for gangster Fish Mooney) who hides his sadistic lust for power behind an exquisitely polite demeanor.

Zabryna Guevara (Burn Notice, 3 lbs.) has been cast as Captain Essen. Character description: Gordon’s boss at the GCPD Homicide Squad, Captain Essen balances the two worlds of police and politics with a Machiavellian skill that’s as much corporate litigator as cop.

Sean Pertwee (Alan Partridge, Jo, Camelot, Devil’s Playground Doomsday, Event Horizon) has been cast as Alfred Pennyworth. Character description: A tough-as-nails ex-marine from East London, Alfred Pennyworth has loyally served the Waynes. Now, in the wake of their tragic deaths, he’s fiercely protective of the young Bruce Wayne.

Erin Richards (Breaking In, Being Human, Merlin) has been cast as Barbara Kean. Character description: A sophisticated emergency room doctor, Barbara is the fiancée of James Gordon, joyful but with an edge of vulnerability. She stands by her future husband…which can be difficult in a world as corrupt as Gotham.

Interestingly enough, Donal Logue, who was said to have been cast as Detective Harvey Bullock, has yet to be officially announced.

Danny Cannon (“Judge Dredd”) directs the pilot for “Gotham”.
