Last week, Fox debuted a trailer for the new "Beasts of Prey" episode of Gotham, which gave us our first look at a new villain known as Ogre, played by Milo Ventimiglia. With the "Beasts of Prey" episode less than one week away, Fox has debuted a new preview that highlights this new character, who will be featured in each of the last four Season 1 episode. As you can see below, Ogre will be quite the formidable foe for Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and the rest of the Gotham police department.
Milo Ventimiglia's Ogre is a ruthless serial killer who not only targets young women, but, when the police start to investigate him, he also kills their loved ones as well. Ben McKenzie reveals that the Ogre is the GCPD's "dirty little secret," and Jim is the only one who is "brave enough or foolish enough" to go after him. The actor also reveals that the Ogre will do something terrible to "someone he loves" and there will be "hell to pay" when Jim catches up to him. Although Ogre shares the name with a DC Comics character, there is no connection to the comic book version.Read More
In just a few weeks, Gotham will return from its six-week hiatus with "Beasts of Prey", the first of Season 1's final four episodes, airing Monday, April 13 on Fox. The network has released a new trailer, which gives us our first look at Milo Ventimiglia's Jason Lennon, a.k.a. Ogre, who is seen getting close with Jim Gordon's (Ben McKenzie) ex Barbara (Erin Richards). We also see what could be the first step into villainy for Edward Nygma (Cory Michael Smith), while Gordon confronts The Penguin (Robin Taylor).
When we first reported on Milo Ventimiglia's casting in February, we reported that his character Ogre is not the same as the DC Comics character of the same name. Gotham's Ogre is a serial killer who has been preying on young women for more than a decade, putting each of them through a series of tests to determine if they are the right match for him. The character will make his debut in "Beasts of Prey" and will appear in rest of this season's episodes as well.Read More
Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, upcoming The Whisperers) has been set to guest star in a major, multiple-episode recurring arc in Season 1 of Gotham. Appearing first in episode 19, Ventimiglia will play Jason Lennon, aka the Ogre. While this Ogre shares a nickname with a character from the DC Comics, it is a different character, not from the DC canon.
Handsome, wealthy and seductive, the Ogre is a serial killer who has been preying on the young women of Gotham for nearly a decade, luring them into his web and confronting them with a series of "tests" as he searches for his perfect mate. When the women fail to live up to his impossible standard, Lennon disposes of them quickly and viciously. His obsessions, combined with Gordon's determination to bring him down, send both Gordon and Lennon - and those around them - on a course toward tragedy.Read More

Anchor Bay Films has released the opening scene from The Divide, director Xavier Gens' apocalyptic thriller which arrives in theaters January 13. Click on the video player below to watch the first moments from this horror tale starring Lauren German, Milo Ventimiglia, and Michael Biehn.
In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers-all tenants of a New York high-rise apartment-escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building's bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, thegroup begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness. Each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows himself or herself to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape, even with no promise of salvation on the outside.Read More
