The cast of "Gotham" on Fox continues to grow. Following the announcement that Ben McKenzie will play the lead of James Gordon on the show, Fox has revealed four more actors joining the series, including two classic "Batman" characters.

Sean Pertwee ("Elementary," "Luther") will play Alfred Pennyworth. His character is described as "a tough-as-nails ex-marine from East London [who] has loyally served the Waynes. Now, in the wake of their tragic deaths, he's fiercely protective of the young Bruce Wayne."
