‘Gotham’ season 2 adds ‘The Wire’ star Leo Fitzpatrick as Joe Pike

The Wire alum Leo Fitzpatrick is set for a recurring arc on the second season of Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham as the “Rise of the Villains” will be the theme and Bruce Wayne discovers the batcave.

Fitzpatrick’s character will be Joe Pike, the leader of a notorious gang of arsonists known as the Pike Brothers. He is just the latest in a series of new baddies joining the rogues of Gotham City.

Centering on GCPD and the early days of Jim Gordon’s career, Gotham stars Ben McKenzie, David Mazouz, Robin Lord Taylor, Camren Bicondova, Cory Michael Smith, Erin Richards, Morena Baccarin, Donal Logue and Sean Pertwee will all return to reprise their respective roles from season one.

Chris Chalk and Nicholas D’Agosto were both upgraded to series regulars, so expect more Lucious Fox and Harvey Dent.

New additions to the cast will be Shield star Michael Chiklis as an officer with GCPD. James Frain and Jessica Lucas were cast as villains Theo Galavant, “a billionaire industrialist hell-bent on taking over Gotham,” and his “sexy, violent enforcer” Tabitha Galavan, aka the show’s version of Tigress. Cameron Monaghan has been teased to have more screen time to capture the evolution into the Joker.

Gotham Season 2 premieres Monday, September 21 on Fox.
