Yesterday, news broke that Sons of Anarchy actor Donal Logue had been offered the role of Commissioner Gordon in Fox's upcoming Batman TV series entitled Gotham. The actor took to Twitter a few hours later and made it clear that the rumor was not true. Here is what he said when questioned about the claim by Nerd Bastards.
@nerdbastards not true! I wish-would be awesome (but who could top Gary Oldman?) From what I heard, Gotham catches Gordon in his late 20's— donal logue (@donallogue) January 15, 2014
The show will be set in the early days of James Gordon's police tenure, when he meets a boy named Bruce Wayne. So what actor is saying makes sense. The project is currently under development by The Mentalist's Bruno Heller. Danny Cannon will be directing the pilot. Who do you think should play the Commissioner?
