Michael Cerveris on Playing Professor Pyg on ‘Gotham’, Being Part of ‘Mosaic’, and More

From the moment of his debut on the Fox series Gotham, Professor Pyg (played with unnerving brilliance by Michael Cerveris) had most definitely made an impression. As a serial killer assassinating cops and dressing his victims in the severed heads of pigs while also wearing a pig’s head himself, Pyg is terrifying and disturbed, but also clearly the mastermind of his own twisted plan that involves Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), whether he likes it or not. During this 1-on-1 interview with Collider, actor Michael Cerveris (who also played September on Fringe and Ramses IV in The Tick) …

4.4 The Demon's Head

The Demon's Head is an example of what Gotham is capable of when it's firing on all cylinders. Tonight's episode, written by series star Ben McKenzie, has a tightness often missing from Gotham and from network TV in general.

Paired with the kind of impeccable production values we've come to expect from this show and a killer performance from Alexander Siddig as R'as al Ghul, and you easily have the best episode of the season and one of the best episodes of Gotham ever, full stop.

Gotham Season 4 Episode 3 Review – ‘They Who Hide Behind Masks’

Martin Carr reviews the third episode of Gotham season 4…

According to those in the know Gotham hit bottom last week with an abysmal showing. Audience numbers are apparently down, interest is waning and those in network television land are ready to hammer that final nail home. Although there would be those inclined to agree I am not amongst them. In truth Gotham has flaws but no more or less than any other show which has been on air consistently over four years. Peaks and troughs are bound to happen, new characters will get introduced and gel or otherwise, such is the way of entertainment industries. What remains true throughout is that Gotham prevails.

When Danny Cannon and company began this origin series back in 2014 detractors were widespread, voracious in their condemnation and never spared the lash. Other more interesting shows surfaced but lasted no more than one season and yet Gotham brought in big numbers.

Ra’s Al Ghul Returns In Promo And Photos For Next Week’s Gotham

Gotham is enjoying a terrific run at the moment. With Bruce Wayne stepping up to become a vigilante and more of the villains coming out of the woodwork – like Jonathan Crane’s Scarecrow – it’s thrilling to see the legendary Batman mythos slowly begin to form.

Gotham Season 4 Review

This review is based on the season premiere.

From the start, a common complaint about Gotham has been that it’s “a Batman show without Batman.” And even as a supporter of the series, I have to admit that position is warranted. But now, we’ve made a huge leap forward, putting it in similar territory to Smallville seasons 8-10 – which I referred to as “the proto-Superman years” – because, like it or not, we’ve now entered the proto-Batman era, baby.

With that, I’m not going to waste time addressing the elephant in the room: The fact that Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) is already putting on a mask and dispensing vigilante justice three years after his parents were gunned down. I firmly believe the producers have decided to allow him to split some wigs because not only are the amount of stories you can tell involving young Bruce extremely limited,

Ben McKenzie Reveals Why He and Wife Morena Baccarin Got Married on Her Birthday

Ben McKenzie Reveals Why He and Wife Morena Baccarin Got Married on Her Birthday
Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin didn't mean to get married on her birthday... it just sort of happened that way.

During an appearance on Harry on Thursday, the 39-year-old actor opened up about their June 2 wedding, revealing that the location of their nuptials was more important to them than the actual day.

“I just got hitched,” McKenzie confirmed, showing off his wedding ring. “We wanted to get married at the Botanic Gardens in Brooklyn, which was beautiful. When we wanted to book it, which was over a year in advance in our defense, the only date available was my wife’s birthday."

“It is sweet, or so I thought,” he continued, revealing that Baccarin gave him just one rule to follow after they chose that date. "Half of her loves that and I think she just wants me to be clear that she is going to get a birthday present and there is going to be an anniversary

Gotham Season 4 Photos Reveal New Characters

Gotham returns to Fox for its fourth season tomorrow night and from what we’ve heard, this new run is set to be the most thrilling yet, as it’ll push its ensemble cast of heroes and villains ever closer to where we know they must end up, as per the Batman comics universe. For instance, Bruce Wayne is set to step up and begin operating as a masked vigilante for the first time – albeit sans bat-ears.

Speaking of Gotham‘s eclectic ensemble, a new photo of the cast has dropped online today and it gives us another look at two fresh additions to the show’s line-up. Namely, Crystal Reed’s Sofia Falcone and Alexander Siddig as Ra’s Al-Ghul. If you recall, the latter actually appeared during the tail-end of season 3 but has been bumped up to a regular this time around.
