Following the images posted over the weekend of Nicholas D’Agosto as Harvey Dent (see here and here), The Daily Beast had an interview with Gotham star Ben McKenzie who dropped the news that The Graysons could be set to appear in the show. And not only that, they could be here before this season is finished.
“The Grayson’s may appear this season,” McKenzie said. “I’m not 100 percent sure yet, but I think so.”
In Batman comics, The Graysons (also known as The Flying Graysons) are a family of acrobats who are murdered by a mob hit. The youngest of The Flying Graysons, Dick, now an orphan, is taken in by Bruce Wayne who trains him to become Robin. Given the show’s timeline, it would be expected that Dick Grayson will not be a fixture of the act.
McKenzie also notes that the show has hired Morena Baccarin, »

Much like other DC Comics TV shows like CW's Arrow and The Flash, Fox's Gotham has been introducing a number of comic book characters early on in its first season, including James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz, Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee), Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Taylor), Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) and Edward Nygma (Cory Michael Smith). During a new interview with The Daily Beast, Ben McKenzie hinted that the future Robin, Dick Grayson, and his parents, may be popping up sometime in Season 1.
"The Graysons may appear this season. I'm not 100 percent sure yet, but I think so."
Dick Grayson has his own tragic origin story in the DC Comics. He watched his parents, trapeze artists known as The Flying Graysons, plummet to their deaths after their equipment was sabotaged by local gangsters. Bruce Wayne takes Dick Grayson under his wing and teaches him how to fight, eventually leading »
Pretty much every Batman villain (well, the ones that work within the Gotham universe anyway) has either appeared or is set to appear on Fox's small-screen telling of the origins of the Dark Knight. We know Harvey Dent will be featured in next week's ep, and following that the likes of Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, and the Joker have all been teased. Well, it sounds like some more heroic character have also been added to the list. Last week Ben McKenzie revealed that his character, Jim Gordon, and Morena Baccarin's Dr. Leslie Thompkins would be lovers on the show, and now he's teasing the appearance of Dick Grayson's, aka Robin/Nightwing, parents. “The Grayson’s may appear this season,” the actor tells the Daily Beast. “I’m not 100 percent sure yet, but I think so.” It sounds like they will be showing up at some point then; maybe just not this season. »
We found out recently that another character from Batman lore, Dr. Leslie Thompkins, would be debuting on Gotham soon and Serenity's Morena Baccarin had been cast in the role. In the comics, Thompkins was an old friend of the Wayne family and acted as an ally and confidant to Bruce on many occasions; but it sounds like she'll have a slightly different role in the Fox TV series. During an interview with the Daily Beast, Ben McKenzie reveals that Jim Gordon and Dr. Thompkins will be hooking up at some point, stating: “they just hired Morena Baccarin on Gotham to play my love interest, Dr. Leslie Thompkins." Pretty cut and dry wouldn't you say? Gordon and Barbara Kean's relationship has been strained on the show of late, but this definitely suggests things will soon get even worse. Of course in the comics Jim eventually settles down with Barbara and »

American Idol‘s newest Season 14 promo — available exclusively here at TVLine — uses the bold-faced names of its previous success stories, a rundown of their accomplishments and a “Superstars Made Here” tagline to differentiate itself from competitors that haven’t exactly rocked the Grammys, the Oscars and the Billboard charts.
“I was so happy ’cause the British man didn’t make me cry,” exclaims Season 1 champ Kelly Clarkson, kicking off the new video.
But the second half of the ad — which flashes the eager faces of Season 14 hopefuls over an optimistic jingle, »
Morena Baccarin (Firefly, Homeland) has secured a role in Gotham, where she will play the character of Dr. Leslie Thompkins. Baccarin will have a recurring role in the first season which is airing now, and will reportedly feature as a regular in season two.
The character is described as: “a gifted and dedicated physician who was a friend of Bruce Wayne’s parents, Thomas and Martha. She is determined to use her skills to aid Gotham’s most in need, which currently means working at the newly opened Arkham Asylum’s Home for the Criminally Insane. In addition to her medical skills, her coolness under pressure will serve her well as she finds herself drawn close to James Gordon and into more and more dangerous waters.”

Frankenstein has come alive at Fox.
The network has ordered a pilot for a modern-day sci-fi drama inspired by the Mary Shelley classic, Deadline reports.
Exec produced by Homeland‘s Howard Gordon and Crisis‘ Rand Ravich, Frankenstein centers on Adam Tremble, a morally corrupt FBI agent who is given a second chance at life when he is brought back from the dead. Now younger and stronger, Tremble will have to choose between his old temptations and his new sense of purpose — all while navigating the complicated relationship with his “creators” (an antisocial internet billionaire and his bio-engineer twin sister).
(Cbr) Morena Baccarin has been cast as Dr. Leslie Thompkins on "Gotham." TV Line reports that Morena Baccarin has joined the cast of "Gotham" as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, the dedicated physician and family friend to the Wayne family. In the pre-Batman series, the character will appear as a doctor working at the newly-opened Arkham Asylum, and finds herself drawn to Detective James Gordon. TV Line describes the "Gotham" version of the character as having "coolness under pressure." Baccarin will join the series as a recurring character in early 2015.

As one of the few civilians that knows Batman's secret identity, she's become a friend of the Bat-family and has -- more than once -- patched up some of Gotham's heroes. Thompkins has also run a clinic that treats »

In light of Gotham having recently been granted an order for extra episodes, it seems that Fox are confident in the future of the show. As well as the season one extension, the addition of more crackers characters from DC’s back catalogue would indicate that Arkham Asylum could serve as a narrative lynchpin of sorts. Now that Morena Baccarin has joined as one of the asylum’s most decorated workers, Dr. Leslie Thompkins, this might definitely be the case.
If Fox’s intentions are to ensure a high rating on the geek intertextuality meter, then they’ve certainly done their research. Baccarin is no stranger to genre titles, after appearing in Joss Whedon’s Firefly, Stargate Sg-1 and V. For those non-sci-fi lovers, she’ll be more recognizable from her fantastic work on Homeland.
But back to Gotham, and Baccarin’s involvement in the show’s burgeoning mythology. Harkening »

Happyish had been ordered to series in January of this year, weeks before Hoffman’s passing. With Coogan now in place, it reverts to the pilot stage.

Is Thom in need of a “rebranding” for the new generation? Is pursuing happiness is a fool’s errand? Or, at his age, is “happyish” the best one can expect? »

Dr. Leslie Thompkins made her DC Comics debut in 1976 issue "Detective Comics #457," and she is also featured in the New 52 comic reboot Red Hood and the Outlaws during flashback sequences.

She will also be drawn to Ben McKenzie's James Gordon and into more dangerous territory.

Morena Baccarin, who played Jessica Brody, the wife of turned Pow Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) and mother of their two kids on Homeland, has landed a recurring role in Fox’s Gotham, and the people that she will be dealing with may be even crazier than Carrie Mathison. Baccarin will reportedly play Dr. Leslie Thompkins, who begins working at Arkham Asylum and soon finds herself in Jim Gordon’s orbit. Although her role will be recurring throughout Season 1 of Gotham, Baccarin is slated to become a series regular if the show gets picked up for a second season (which, unless its ratings suddenly tank, we all know it will). According to TVLine, “Thompkins is a gifted and dedicated physician who was a friend of the late Thomas and Martha Wayne.
