Breaking News: Jada Pinkett Smith Joins Gotham

By Tim Beedle Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

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...
