Tony Award winner and Fringe alum Michael Cerveris will join the cast of Gotham as villain Professor Pyg, the schizophrenic leader of the Circus Of Strange. In a season that already promises the debut of Scarecrow, the addition of the Professor Pyg definitely one-ups the creepiness ante.
Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon had this to say about Michael:
“He’s one of my best friends. He was in film school graduation movie when we were both amateurs. Now he’s joining the fold.”
Things look to be gearing up for a season full of surprises when Gotham returns on Sept 21.
