David Mazouz is set to star as the very young Bruce Wayne in 'Gotham'.
Young actor David Mazouz will be playing the pre-teen Wayne.
Gotham criminals beware: the Fox drama has cast the young man who will one day take you down.
David Mazouz has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne, who has been 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 (Sean Pertwee) and Detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie).
Based upon characters published by DC Comics, Gotham is a Batman prequel that explores the origin stories of Commissioner Gordon and the villains that made Gotham infamous.
Newcomer Camren Bicondova has also been cast as Selina Kyle, a teenage orphan, street thief and skilled pickpocket who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. Kyle, who in the DC comic books grows up to be Catwoman, is dangerous when cornered.
Mazouz and Bicondova are the final two series regulars.
Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) wrote the pilot script and will serve as executive producer. Danny Cannon (CSI) will direct and executive produce the pilot.
Other series regulars include Donal Logue (Detective Harvey Bullock), Zabryna Guevara (Captain Essen), Erin Richards (Barbara Kean), Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin), and Jada Pinkett Smith (Fish Mooney). — Reuters
