Fox’s Batman inspired series “Gotham” is filming in NYC and casting kids / teens ages 12 to 15 in the area.
The show is filming the new season and needs kids to play prep school students in a scene filming this coming Monday. Casting directors at Grant Wilfley are seeking kids available Monday and have specific attire (see below) that they could wear to play prep school kids.
“Gotham” is now filming season 2 which is set to premiere on September 21st. The new season of “Gotham” is being called “Rise of the Villains”. While season 1 introduced a good amount of Batman series villains, season 2 is supposed to really bring it with the introduction of Mr. Freeze, The Joker and according to Variety, Victor Zsasz, Tigress and the Ogre.
“Gotham” is the back story of Jim Gordon and the people that would become the super villains we are all familiar with. In the series, Gordon is a rising detective in the very corrupt Gotham City. Gordon is determined to prove himself and put a dent in the city’s crime rate. Joining Gordon is his partner, Detective Harvey Bullock. After the high profile murders of billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne, Gordon befriends their young son Bruce Wayne and forms a bond with the orphan who will grow up in the corrupt, crime stricken city to become Batman.
