Gotham, the upcoming new Fox drama set early in the life of James Gordon and the young Bruce Wayne, has cast Matrix Reloaded and Madagascar star Jada Pinkett Smith in a surprising role.
That of gangster Fish Mooney.
Fish Mooney was previously mentioned along with the news that Robin Lord Taylor had been cast as Oswald Cobblepot (who is a low-level hood under her employ). Fish is described as being "a sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner, she’s got the street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book. Imposing and hotheaded, she’s not one to be crossed."
A nightclub owner would seem to make sense, as one would assume young Oswald would eventually supplant her and we all know what business he runs, right?
More to come...
