Fox’s upcoming Gotham TV series continues to put together an impressive cast, with Kingdom Come and The Matrix Revolutions star Jada Pinkett Smith set as the latest addition. Who will she be playing? Well, it won’t be a character from the comic books! Instead, the description for her role in the series is as follows:

A sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner, Fish Mooney’s got the street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book. Imposing and hotheaded, she’s not one to be crossed.

Mooney is set to be The Penguin’s boss in the series, so original character or not, her presence in Gotham will obviously be pivotal to the series which focuses on the early years of Detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) after Bruce Wayne’s parents are murdered.

Gotham also stars Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, »
