Actor Michael Chiklis has accepted the role of police Captain Nathaniel Barnes for the upcoming season of Fox televisions hit show “Gotham”.
In a press release from Fox:
“Barnes lands on the Gotham City Police Department like a tornado, ripping out the dead wood of the city’s police force. He is a law-and-order zealot; unafraid of making enemies on either side of the law. For Gordon (Ben McKenzie) he is a hero and a mentor, someone with whom he can share the burden of heroism. Captain Barnes proves himself to be a strong ally to Gordon (Ben McKenzie), but one day he will make an equally powerful enemy.”
Chiklis, whose credits include roles in “The Shield” and “The Fantastic Four” should make a fine addition to the cast of Gotham.
Gothram returns for it’s second season this fall on Fox.
