Cory Michael Smith has joined the cast of Gotham as Edward Nygma, the DC Comics character destined to become future supervillain The Riddler. In the prequel drama from Fox and Wbtv, Nygma is a brilliant but socially awkward forensic scientist who’s eccentric and outgoing and desperate to be liked. Smith has a guest role in the pilot and might become a series regular on the hourlong drama exec produced by Bruno Heller, which stars Ben McKenzie as young Gotham City cop James Gordon. Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, Zabryna Guevara, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Erin Richards, David Mazouz, and Camren Bicondova also star. Smith is coming off of HBO miniseries Olive Kitteridge with Frances McDormand and turns in Todd Haynes’ Carol, opposite Cate Blanchett, and Camp X-Ray with Kristen Stewart. Smith is repped by Paradigm and Circle of Confusion. Related: ‘Gotham’ Character Photos Revealed: Slideshow 2014 Fox Pilots »

The hype is slowly starting to build around Fox’s new DC series Gotham, which is due to start airing in the autumn. We now have the first official images of British actor Sean Pertwee as Wayne family butler Alfred Pennyworth, and as you can see he’s definitely got the looks for the part.
Pertwee will obviously be playing a younger Alfred than we’re used to seeing, as he takes care of a recently-orphaned Bruce Wayne in the show which will look at the rise of Police Commissioner Jim Gordon and some of Batman’s most notorious nemeses.
Speaking of which, the production has also tweeted a shot of Carmen Bicondova as a 14-year old Selina Kyle, who of course becomes the morally grey Catwoman:

As production continues on Fox's Gotham, from Warner Bros. Television and based upon characters published by DC Entertainment, the first character-look image of Donal Logue as Gotham City Police Detective Harvey Bullock has been released.
Jim Gordon's partner and mentor, the rough-around-the-edges Detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue - Sons of Anarchy, Terriers, Vikings, Copper) plays loose with police procedure, but gets results, and he does so with old-school, hard-ass panache.
Check out the next character-look reveal tomorrow (Friday, March 21) on the Gotham social media pages. "Like" Gotham on Facebook at Facebook.com/GothamOnFox.
