Morena Baccarin is ready to give birth. Like. Right. Now. "My water could break right now," the actress told E! News last night at a special fan screening of her new flick Deadpool in New York City.

Morena Baccarin Gets Real About the Less-Than-Glamorous Side of Pregnancy: "[I Feel] Like Crap"

9 February 2016 8:09 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

While pregnant celebrities may make having a baby look like a breeze, Morena Baccarin is letting us all in on a little secret—it's far from glamorous.  Though the rich and famous look flawless with their perfect baby bumps, couture maternity wear and gleaming faces, the 36-year-old Gotham actress is pulling back the curtain on the shiny Hollywood veneer. Pregnant for the second time and expecting her first child with boyfriend and co-star Benjamin McKenzie, the brunette beauty revealed she's not exactly in the mood to be strutting a red carpet in a gown.  "[I feel] like crap, like I want to just sleep all day and not be in a dress all day and heels," she told E! »

Morena Baccarin and Ben McKenzie looked so happy when they hit the red carpet at a fan event for Morena's upcoming film, Deadpool, in NYC on Monday evening. Morena, who is currently pregnant with her second child, showed off her growing baby bump in a black lace dress while Ben made a dapper appearance in dark-gray suit.

Watch Gotham Stories: Chapter 2 – “Mr. Freeze Targets Penguin”

8 February 2016 10:12 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox has just released yet another exciting chapter of Gotham Stories, which bears a rather straightforward title in “Mr. Freeze Targets Penguin.” As you have no doubt gathered, it delivers what it promises.

Featuring the voice talents of Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin), Camren Bicondova (Selina Kyle/Cat), Nathan Darrow (Victor Fries), Ben McKenzie (Jim Gordon) and Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock), this episode is the second of five motion comics that intends to bridge the gap between the first half of Season Two, “Rise of the Villains,” and the second half, “Wrath of the Villains.”

In this particular episode, which picks up right where last week’s left off, Mr. Freeze (whom you can get a new look at here) wastes absolutely no time making his frosty, lethal presence known. And while we may not know what caused his vendetta against Penguin, Freeze gives the impression that someone may have hired him. »

While we all wait impatiently for the return of Gotham, Fox has thankfully decided to sate our appetites by releasing a five part motion comic mini-series online, titled “Gotham Stories.”

Featuring the voice talents of Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin), Camren Bicondova (Selina Kyle/Cat), Nathan Darrow (Victor Fries), Ben McKenzie (Jim Gordon) and Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock), these brief installments will bridge the gap between the first half of Season Two, “Rise of the Villains,” and the second half, “Wrath of the Villains.” Thirty seconds of this installment will be shown during tonight’s episode of The X-Files, but the entire one minute clip can luckily be viewed in the video embedded above.

In this first episode, we see that Penguin and others are not wasting any time attempting to fill the power vacuum left after the demise of corrupt mayor, Theo Galavan. »

Jada Pinkett Smith Returning as Fish Mooney in 'Gotham' Season 2

29 January 2016 12:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in March, a few months before Gotham closed out its first season, Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that she will not be back as the villainous Fish Mooney in Season 2. At the time, the actress claimed she had only signed on for one season of the hit Fox show, which is currently on its midseason hiatus, set to return on February 29. Today, TV Line is reporting that the actress just signed on for a multi-episode arc in Gotham Season 2. Fox has confirmed that the actress is in fact coming back, but no details about her return were given.

In the Season 1 finale, Fish Mooney was pushed out of a warehouse and into the sea by her arch-nemesis Penguin (Robin Taylor). We never saw her actually die, or resurface after her fall, so her fate was left up in the air. It seems that she did actually survive, but it isn't »

Summer Roberts is really regretting her iconic "Chino? Ew!" commment. One of three reported Powerball winners bought the lucky lottery ticket in Chino Hills, California, and the Internet immediately congratulated the area's fictional hometown hero: The O.C.'s bad boy with a heart of gold, Ryan Atwood. "Just heard kid Chino won the lotto, Ryan Atwood where you at?" one fan tweeted Wednesday night. "Ryan Atwood throwing one heck of a party in Chino tonight. Powerball winner, probably," another wrote. Just heard kid Chino won the lotto, Ryan Atwood where you at? pic.twitter.com/gnkNtN9Qju— Sarah Anne (@raja »

Gotham's Ben McKenzie Says Dead Villains Might Not Stay Dead

14 January 2016 5:03 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Cinemablend.com recently caught up with Ben Mckenzie, who plays Jim Gordon on Fox's "Gotham", at Wizard World New Orleans and asked the actor about the deceased villains and the possibility of them returning to the show such as Jerome, played by actor Cameron Monaghan, who was killed off earlier in season 2. 

Mckenzie simply said:

"Not only can we but we might. I can’t definitively say yes. I’ll put it this way: almost nobody that you’ve seen go away is dead. They are all able to come back."

The first-half of season 2 saw the demise of the some notable villains on the show which included Jerome, Theo Galavan, and Fish Mooney. It will have to be an impossible feat for the writing team to bring those dead characters back from the grave.

"Gotham" is set to return from Winter hiatus on February 29th on Fox. »

Dead "Gotham" Characters Could All Return

13 January 2016 6:49 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Fox's "Gotham" has seen numerous characters meet their apparent demise, especially in this second season so far which has been a bit of a bloodbath. Now, the show's leading man Ben McKenzie says that despite all this death almost no character is off the table and could well make a return at some point.

Speaking at a panel at the recent Wizard World convention in New Orleans, McKenzie was asked about the return of Cameron Monaghan's proto-Joker character Jerome. He responded (via CinemaBlend:

"Not only can we [bring characters back] but we might. I can't definitively say yes. I'll put it this way: almost nobody that you've seen go away is dead. They are all able to come back."

This most likely refers to the mysterious Indian Hill facility run by the still unseen Dr. Hugo Strange and through which several villains have gone through as part of Strange's experimentation efforts. The »

Gotham Spoilers: Which Fan Favorite Character Is Still Alive?

13 January 2016 6:32 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Is anyone else ridiculously pumped about Gotham coming back to television on February 29th?  Not only are we excited but according Ben McKenzie at least one popular character is going to be resurrected.  Speculation is that Jerome will be the one who makes a return.  Even tough the “Joker” was stabbed in the neck in season two fans were left reeling because they wanted to see more of the entertaining lunatic.  Sure he may not be the actual Joker but who cares?  He’s awesome anyway. Resurrection seems like an inevitability too as the introduction of Dr. Hugo Strange and his

First Look at Paul Reubens as Penguin's Dad in 'Gotham' Season 2

5 January 2016 2:21 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in October, just a few weeks after Season 2 of Gotham debuted, it was announced that Paul Reubens has signed on to play Tucker Cobblepot, the Penguin's father. It was never confirmed when this new character would actually debut on the show, but earlier today, Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon revealed the first photo of Tucker Cobblelpot on his Twitter page. The photo was taken on the first day of production after the holiday hiatus, with Paul Reubens pictured alongside his on-screen son, Robin Taylor.

Oddly enough, this is the second time that Paul Reubens is playing Tucker Cobblepot. He portrayed the Penguin's dad in the 1992 movie Batman Returns. No details have been given yet as to how the elder Cobblepot will be introduced into the show, but the return of Penguin's father certainly does come at a crucial time for this tormented character.

Earlier this season, Penguin's psyche was »
