James Frain is really good at playing a bad guy. You might recognize him from The Tudors, the White Queen, True Blood, The Cape, Grimm, Intruders or Orphan Black… Oh and the new season of True Detective. Yes, when you need an actor who can act like your best friend as he holds a knife to your back, this is the guy. Seems the producers of Gotham thought the same thing. Frain will be joining the Fox series as a regular playing Theo Galavan.
Galavan will be part of a villainous duo with his sister Tabitha who has yet to be cast. Tabitha Galavan will also be the DC Comics character Tigress. How much the character will relate to the comic character is unknown. The Tigress has been three people of the years, a foe for Zatara that debuted in Action Comics #1. Another Tigress was a member of the Young All-Stars before becoming the villainess Huntress. And most recently it was the later alias for Artemis Croc, the daughter of the Sportsmaster and member of the Teen Titans.
As for Theo, he is a billionaire industrialist with a centuries old vendetta. He appears to be the savior of Gotham, but he and his sister will cause chaos and destruction which will lead to the creation of new villains… and the destruction of others.
Gotham season 2 kicks off this fall on Fox.
