Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, Mob City, Gilmore Girls) has joined the cast of ‘Gotham.’ Announced by Warner Bros. TV on Wednesday, Milo will play a seductive serial killer named Jason Lennon, a.k.a. “The Ogre,” in a major multiple-episode arc starting with episode 19, titled “The Whispers.”
They also note that while this Ogre shares a nickname with a character from the DC Comics, it is a different character and not from the DC Canon.
Handsome, wealthy and seductive, the Ogre is a serial killer who has been preying on the young women of Gotham for nearly a decade, luring them into his web and confronting them with a series of “tests” as he searches for his perfect mate. When the women fail to live up to his impossible standard, Lennon disposes of them quickly and viciously.
His obsessions, combined with Gordon’s determination to bring him down, send both Gordon and Lennon — and those around them — on a course toward tragedy.
Stars Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock), Ben McKenzie (Detective Jim Gordon), David Mazouz (young Bruce Wayne), Robin Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin), Camren Bicondova (Selina Kyle/Catwoman), Cory Michael Smith (Edward Nygma/The Riddler), Sara Paxton (Bette Kane), Jada Pinkett Smith (Fish Mooney), Clare Foley (Ivy Pepper/Poison Ivy) and Sean Pertwee (Alfred Pennyworth).
‘Gotham’ airs Mondays on FOX at 8pm.
