A second villain for the Gotham TV series has been cast with Jada Pickett Smith.
According to Deadline, Smith will play Fish Mooney, an imposing, hotheaded and notoriously sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner with street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book who is not one to be crossed.
Previously it was announced that Robin Lord Taylor will play Oswald Cobblepot (The Penguin) who is described as a low-level gangster working for Fish Mooney who is a psychopath hiding his true demeanor behind a polite facade.
Smith joins Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon, Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen and Erin Richards as Barbara Kean.
