After seeing the Superbowl ad wondering why the hell they’d try to resurrect Heroes via Reborn after they messed up the final few seasons, it seems Heroes-actor Milo Ventimiglia has made a leap over to the DC Universe, joining the cast of Gotham.
The role is a recurring one, and is of an original character; Ventimiglia will be making his debut in Gotham‘s Episode 19.
Ventimiglia will be playing an opulent psychopathic serial killer (but apparently his handsomeness makes up for it somewhat) who is affectionately known as “the Ogre” a.k.a. Jason Lennon. He’ll have the tendency to lure young unbeknownst Gotham women and put them through a series of tests to assess their suitability as a mate. Not doubt he’ll be enjoying his Jack the Ripper games in a place as gothic as Gotham.
But when you have an insatiable serial killer on the prowl with a you, ever determined Gordon in the mix, what you’ll definitely get is the callous pursuit of justice that may spell tragedy for both men on opposite sides of the law and human spectrum.
Can’t wait? Loving the series so far? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
