Things are moving forward on Fox‘s upcoming GOTHAM series. Deadline reports that Ben McKenzie (The O.C., Southland) will play Detective Jim Gordon in the series. Fans may recall that he voiced The Dark Knight in the animated movie Batman: Year One.

Gotham already has a series commitment, and will feature a young Bruce Wayne as well as early iterations of villains like The Joker, Catwoman, The Riddler and The Penguin. According to the official logline, “Gordon is an idealistic rookie detective for Gotham City Open Police Department’s Homicide Squad, a former college football star and a war hero.” 

The Mentalist creator Bruno Heller wrote the pilot, which Danny Cannon will direct. Fox is eyeing a fall premiere date.
