The actor, who has played power hungry Oswald Cobblepot on Fox’s Batman prequel since the pilot episode, will play Will on You. Will deals with unsavory sorts as part of his job, but is himself a thoughtful, personable, and highly intelligent guy who marches to the beat of his own drummer. That is, until he gets trapped in a bad situation.
You, which also hails from Gotham producer Warner Bros., follows bookstore manager Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley). In the freshman season, which was based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same name and aired on Lifetime, Goldberg becomes obsessed with his customer Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail), using social media and the internet to stalk her.
