FOX’s “Gotham” keeps looking better and better, as more cast members are announced. Producer Warner Bros. TV has named the actors who will portray young versions of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, before they become Batman and Catwoman.
David Mazouz, the 13-year-old former star of “Touch,” will play Bruce Wayne as a preteen, “sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents. Serious and soulful, young Bruce relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and James Gordon.”
Selina Kyle will be played by Camren Bicondova. The character is described as “a teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A street thief and skilled pickpocket, she’s dangerous when cornered.” What’s interesting about Bicondova is she’s got a bit of a young Michelle Pfeiffer look going on. Pfeiffer, of course, played arguably the best Catwoman in “Batman Returns.”
Mazouz and Bicondova are the last two series regulars for “Gotham,” which also stars Ben Mackenzie, Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sean Pertwee, Zabryna Guevara and Erin Richards. It’s slated for FOX’s 2014-15 schedule.
