Harvey Dent Comes to Gotham as Nicholas D’Agosto Sets Guest Starring Role

Another character destined for infamy as a member of Batman’s rogues gallery is making a trip to “Gotham.” Variety reports that Final Destination 5 star Nicholas D’Agosto will guest star as Harvey Dent on an upcoming episode of the hit FOX series. It is noted that D’Agosto is not planned to recur significantly during the first season, but it’s probably a safe bet that Dent will return as the series progresses.

Harvey Dent was played in Tim Burton’s original Batman by Billy D. Williams, who appeared solely as Gotham’s District Attorney and not as Two-Face. Tommy Lee Jones then took on both halves for Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever as did Aaron Eckhardt in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.

Next week’s episode of the series, “The Balloonman,” has Detectives Gordon and Bullock tracking down a vigilante who is killing corrupt Gotham citizens by attaching them to weather balloons. Meanwhile, Oswald Cobblepot returns to Gotham and gets a new job close to an influential figure in the underworld. Catch it October 6 on FOX and find out recap of the series second episode, “Selina Kyle,” right here.
