On a new episode of Gotham, called Hog Day Afternoon, we are introduced to the nefarious Professor Pyg. The deranged Professor will be played by Tony-Award winner Michael Cerveris. DCTV talked with the cast and crew of the series about the arrival of more recent Batman villain created by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely. The first big thing to take from this video is that executive producer Danny Cannon talks about how we meet the character tonight and then over the next four episodes we learn more about him and it makes the character even darker. This tells us that Pyg, short for Pygmalion, will be around for at least five episodes.
This also tells us that Pyg has strayed away from his comic counterpart by focusing on the police and putting pig heads on them rather than bonding doll faces. Perhaps they are taking away the Pygmalion aspect of the character.
We also hear from Jessica Lucas and Carmen Bicondova about the formation of the Gotham Sirens (Selina Kyle, Tabitha Galvan and Barbara Kean), Robin Lord Taylor talks the trouble coming up for the Penguin, David Mazouz talks about Bruce Wayne finding himself as a crime fighter and Sean Pertwee lets us know that we'll be diving more into the backstory of Alfred Pennyworth.
Cannon ends it by explaining that this is the "crazy, bananas" season. That they've spent three years building it up and now they're, "setting this bonfire off."
Gotham airs tonight at 8 PM on Fox.
