Paul Reubens to play Penguin’s father on Gotham
Last year, it was revealed that Paul Reubens would be making his way to FOX’s Gotham and taking on a very familiar role, the father of Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin. This, of course, marks the second time that Reubens has played the character, having a cameo in the role in Tim Burton’s 1992 follow-up Batman Returns. Now, series executive producer and director Danny Cannon has posted an image from the set featuring Reubens in character with his “son,” Robin Lord Taylor. Check it out below!
Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Michael Chiklis as Detective Nathaniel Barnes, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/the future Riddler, James Frain as Theo Galavan, Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan, Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox, Nicholas D’Agosto as Harvey Dent, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Sarah Essen.
