Gotham Adds Prison Break's Marina Benedict For Season 4

Gotham is adding two new characters for season four, and like other WBTV series, they've looked to Prison Break. The Fox series has cast Marina Benedict, who played the assassin in the Prison Break revival, as Cherry, a recurring character who owns a fight club in the Narrows. She is described as edgy and tough while her club represents a seat of power in a lawless area of Gotham. As Edward Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) and Solomon Grundy (Drew Powell), Cherry serve as an ally… or an adversary.

Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) is getting a new friend as Benjamin Stockham (About a Boy) signs on to play Alex Winthrop. This is a guest role as Stochham plays a bookish grandson of a museum curator that Bruce comes across while he's tracking a mysterious artifact. When bad guys come looking for the artifact, Bruce and Alex go on the run. The character does not appear to be connected to the DC comics at all. But, Butch Gilzean is now Solomon Grundy… so who knows, this could be Tommy Elliot.

Benedict has also appeared in Torchwood: Miracle Day and the series Flesh and Bone. Stockham has appeared in 1600 Penn and Sons of Tuscon.

Gotham Season 4 premieres on a new night and time, Thursday, September 21st at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
