The reports were right, it turns out. FOX has announced that “Sons of Anarchy” and “Vikings” star Donal Logue has been cast as Detective Harvey Bullock on “Gotham.”
In a presse release, the character is described as “Jim Gordon’s partner and mentor, the rough-around-the-edges Detective Harvey Bullock plays loose with police procedure, but he gets results … and he does it with old-school, forceful panache.”
A forceful panache shouldn’t be too hard to Logue to pass off after playing the insanely corrupt former U.S. Marshal Lee Toric on “Sons of Anarchy.” Still, it’ll be interesting to see what a law-abiding officer played by Logue is like.
Previously announced cast includes Ben McKenzie as Gordon, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor as The Penguin, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen and Erin Richards as Barbara Keen.
