Greetings Gothamites! I hope you all enjoyed the lovely holiday season! There is great news for the second half of the season in the form of a new image from the set. Paul Reubens, of Pee-Wee Herman fame, will appear on the show as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin’s father. For anyone who paid very close attention to Batman Returns, he played the father of Danny DeVito’s Penguin in a flashback scene.
That was then. This is now.
He still looks creepy and fits the role very well. I cannot wait to see him in action again, especially that he’ll have a bigger role in Gotham than he did in Batman Returns. The winter hiatus hasn’t been easy, especially when other shows are returning but it’s fun to read news like this to give us fans something to look forward to.
Gotham returns February 29 at 8pm on Fox. Check your local listings.
