Nathan Darrow, who plays the sexually-unencumbered bodyguard to President Frank Underwood in the Netflix hit House Of Cards is set to bring the chills to Gotham Season 2. The actor has been cast as Dr. Victor Fries, aka Mr Freeze.
Gotham‘s Executive Producer John Stephens stated that Freeze will make his premiere appearance in the Nov. 30 episode, and then we’re going to be telling a heavy Freeze story in Episodes 12 and 13.
Character description reads:
Though ferociously smart and eminently capable in his work as one of Gotham’s preeminent cryogenics engineers, Victor struggles to make meaningful connections with others. The one exception is his wife, Nora (casting TBA), who has tragically fallen ill with a terminal disease. Victor’s love for Nora knows no bounds, so as her condition worsens, he goes to extreme measures to figure out a way to freeze her before she dies. This harrowing journey leads to his transformation into the legendary DC villain, Mr. Freeze.
