TV Line are reporting that “Shield” star Michael Chiklis is set to join season two of Fox’s Gotham.
Chiklis will play Captain Nathaniel Barnes, a hero and a mentor for Ben McKenzie’s Jim Gordon.
According to the official character description, Barnes “lands on the GCPD like a tornado, ripping out the dead wood of Gotham’s police force. He is a law and order zealot; unafraid of making enemies — on either side of the law. For Gordon, Barnes is a hero and a mentor, someone with whom he can share the burden of heroism. Captain Barnes proves himself to be a strong ally to Gordon… but one day he will make an equally powerful enemy.”
“Gotham” returns to Fox on Monday, Sept. 21 at 8 pm EST.
