In September, news broke that Fox made a series commitment to “Gotham,” a new live-action show that will follow the adventures of a young Detective James Gordon. Now, TV Show Auditions is reporting they are casting a 10-year-old Bruce Wayne for the show and it would be a regular role.
According to the site: “A 10-year-old Bruce Wayne is among the roles that are now being cast as series regulars on the upcoming Fox TV series “Gotham” which explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham City famous. Under development for over a year, the project has now been given a direct-to-series order by the network, which won an intense bidding war for the Warner Bros. Television rights to the show. Shooting on the pilot episode will get underway in March, 2014 and will center on Gotham City PD rookie homicide detective James Gordon who investigates the double murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne.”
The series hails from “The Mentalist” creator Bruno Heller. First appearing in “Detective Comics” #27 (the 1939 comic that also debuted Batman), Commissioner James Gordon is the creation of Bill Finger and Bob Kane.
