Featured Role, Casting Call for FOX Series, “Gotham” To Play Villain in NYC


FOX Batman inspired series “Gotham” is filming in NYC and now casting a few very specific, featured roles.

GWC is looking to cast talent in the New York City area to play a featured villain. There are 2 casting calls out with some very specific needs. The show’s casting team at GWC is looking for someone very tall, 6’7″ or taller to play a featured monster. Also, they are looking for talent with a finger missing to fill another featured villain role.

Gotham” is a prequel to the Batman movies. It follows our favorite characters from the Batman films and comics before Bruce Wayne became the masked vigilante. The series stars Ben McKenzie (“Southland“), Donal Logue (“Sons of Anarchy“, “Vikings“) and Jada Pinkett Smith (“The Matrix“).

Gotham focuses on the characters and villains of the Batman comics before Batman was a vigilante. “GOTHAM” follows Gordon before he rose up in the police force, while he was still a detective and just getting to know the iconic characters from the comics. Bruce Wayne / Batman is part of the show, but not the focus. In the series Bruce Wayne and Cat Woman are still kids, orphans, struggling to find a place in the world.
