Ben McKenzie Says He's "Great in Bed," Admits to Using "Pink Fluffy" Handcuffs With an Ex

19 December 2014 | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Ben McKenzie is spilling all his dirty laundry!The "Gotham" star opens up about his personal life (ladies, he's single!) and his skills in the bedroom in the January issue of Elle magazine.  While we don't think the 36-year-old actor has trouble getting dates now, that hasn't always been the case. When he was living in New York many years ago, he had bunk beds—a deal breaker for some women."You have to talk about it before you enter the apartment. You can't just drop that bomb," he recalls. "I may have managed a makeout session or two, but I certainly don't remember being able to seal the deal. Any woman worth her salt has to draw a line at some point. And that line is definitely having bunk beds as a 22-year-old." After Ben's stint on "The O.C.," he played a cop on "Southland" for five years. Did »

Ben McKenzie Admits to Using Handcuffs in Bed With a Woman, Talks Dating Regrets

19 December 2014 1:31 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Mr. McKenzie will see you now! Gotham's Ben McKenzie doesn't talk much about his private life, but he opened up a little to Elle about his thoughts on relationships and sex — including at least one past experience with a pair of novelty handcuffs. Asked whether any of his former partners had asked him to wear his cop uniform from Southland to bed, the O.C. alum, 36, replied, "There's been a joke or two, but no one's ever really asked. Handcuffs have been brought." He was quick to [...] »

Ben McKenzie is 'Great in Bed,' Uses Fluffy Pink Handcuffs

18 December 2014 5:50 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Gotham star Ben McKenzie might have grown up in the Friday Night Lights world of Texas high school football, but he insists he was no Tim Riggins.

"Oh man, I wish I was Riggins," the actor told Elle in a recent interview. "I did have a chance to briefly date a cheerleader, which was fun. Until she dumped me."

He might not have been Riggins, but it sounds like the actor channeled his O.C. character Ryan Atwood, another handsome brooder, for most of his high school years.

"I tried to milk the quiet, introverted type for as long as I could," he says. "You know that great quote they attribute to Abraham Lincoln: 'Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt'? It's better to shut up and look dangerous than speak and reveal yourself to be an idiot."

Ben McKenzie: I'm 'Great in Bed'

18 December 2014 4:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ben McKenzie has just confirmed all of our teenage, O.C.-centric dreams: He's great in bed. At least, that's what the Gotham actor said when asked what his former paramours would have to say about him in the January issue of Elle, on newsstands now. In the relationship-focused Q&A, McKenzie, 36, also admitted his former flames "would say, 'He's stubborn.' Maybe that's a little too self-deprecating. But early on, stubborn. Maybe a little detached at times." McKenzie, who has managed to keep his romantic relationships out of the spotlight, revealed another intimate detail: Handcuffs have made an appearance in the bedroom. »

Today, Fox released a handful images from the mid-season premiere, “Rogues’ Gallery,” as well as a description of the episode, and they both promise exciting things to come.

Ben McKenzie: Handcuffs Are “Fun” For Sex, Bunk Beds Not So Much

18 December 2014 10:31 AM, PST | GossipCop | See recent GossipCop news »

Ben McKenzie opens up (at least more than usual) in a new Elle interview, revealing a sex life littered with bunk beds and handcuffs, but Not Nina Dobrev. He was falsely linked to the actress earlier this year after they were spotted embracing at Comic-Con. Gossip Cop was the first to bust the rumor back then, and McKenzie can't believe it got so much attention in the first place. »

Listen up, ladies: Ben McKenzie is single! The Gotham actor opens up about his romantic life and shares lessons he's learned about love in Elle's January 2015 issue. McKenzie is a catch, but he hasn't always had it easy. When he was living in New York many years ago, he had bunk beds—a deal breaker for most women.

Casting notice out for Robin’s parents in Gotham

17 December 2014 12:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month, Gotham star Ben McKenzie revealed that the Graysons could be heading to the Batman prequel series, with showrunner Bruno Heller subsequently stating that they’re planning a “prenatal origin story for Robin” where we’d learn how Robin’s parents met.

Well, it looks like we should expect an appearance from Dick’s mother and father in the latter half of the first season, with TV Line revealing that a casting notice is out for the characters of John Grayson and Mary Lloyd, “teenage circus performers who will figure into Episode 16 and hint at the origin of a certain Boy Wonder.”

The article also goes on to reveal that Episode 17 will introduce two new characters: “Dr. Dulmacher (aka another Dollmaker), this time conceived as a mad European scientist, and Reggie Payne, an old army buddy of Alfred’s who has gone a bit to seed.”

Gotham will return to Fox on January 5th. »

Gotham 1.9 Blog: Harvey Dent Review [Contains Spoilers]

14 December 2014 2:44 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Karen Gaviola

Writer: Ken Woodruff

Cast: Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, David Mazouz, Robin Lord Taylor, Sean Pertwee, Jada Pinkett Smith, Erin RichardsCamren Bicondova, Zabryna Guevara, Makenzie Leigh, John Doman and Nicholas D’Agosto.

Synopsis: Trying to close the Wayne murder case, a young Harvey Dent encourages Gordon to team up with Mayor James. Meanwhile, Penguin makes contact with Mooney’s secret weapon, Liza.

Verdict:

After last weeks Gotham decided to slow things down in terms of the shows (seemingly) central storyline revolving around the rise of the Penguin, episode 9 mixes up the format slightly with the introduction of a brand new character to proceedings.

Harvey Dent will no doubt be a name most commonly associated with Aaron Eckhart’s acclaimed portrayal of the character in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. However, this weeks Gotham attempted to re-introduce the future Bat-nemesis to audiences in the form of a »

Donal Logue Talks Gotham, Joining the DC Universe, How His Kids Love the Show, and More

10 December 2014 6:15 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

On the hit Fox series Gotham, actor Donal Logue plays Harvey Bullock, the brash and shrewd police legend who sometimes walks a very blurred line to get the job done.  While his new partner Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) hopes to restore Gotham City back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid, Bullock helps steer him around the often-underhanded politics of the city’s criminal justice system and the villains that inhabit it. During this exclusive interview with Collider, Donal Logue talked about how spoiled he feels with the worlds he’s gotten to run around in over the last couple of years, why being a part of the DC universe is like coming aboard an aircraft carrier that’s waiting for you, how showrunner Bruno Heller sold him on Gotham, how excited his kids are about him being on the show, that he’d love to »

New Batman v Superman Plot Info Regarding Two Famous Batman Characters

9 December 2014 2:25 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Two of the most popular and well-known supporting characters in the Batman mythos are Commissioner James Gordon and Alfred Pennyworth, the faithful butler.  Both men are a part of the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but what can we expect to see in this new interpretation of the Dcu? (Potential Spoilers Below)

When Batman meets Superman in the much anticipated Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the dark knight will be bringing some of his traditional supporting characters along with him. Not surprisingly, Alfred the butler will be back to assist the caped crusader in his latest incarnation (played by the much maligned Ben Affleck), portrayed this time around by Jeremy Irons (Die Hard With a Vengeance, the Man in the Iron Mask, the Time Machine).   After all, would Batman be complete without the presence of the ever-loyal manservant who raised him after his parents were murdered?

The Top Ten TV Series of 2014

9 December 2014 11:42 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

10. "Gotham" (Fox): In September, on the basis of the pilot, I called "Gotham" "the perfect antidote to superhero fatigue." That assessment stands; if anything, Fox's police procedural/comic book mash-up has only grown on me as Det. Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) increasingly finds himself torn between pragmatic means and idealistic ends. As evidenced by the fine supporting cast, including Donal Logue as Gordon's partner, Jada Pinkett Smith as underworld maven Fish Mooney, and David Mazouz as the young Bruce Wayne, "Gotham" unapologetically favors rakish charm over high dudgeon. Sure, it's as insubstantial as bubblegum -- that's why it's so much fun. Read More: "Review: 'Gotham,' Fox's Whiz-Bang Antidote to Superhero Fatigue" 9.
