Superhero Hype reports that Jada Pinkett Smith has joined the cast of Warner Bros. Television and FOX's Gotham as gangster Fish Mooney. Fish is an original character for the series.
Here's a character description: A sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner, Fish Mooney's got the street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book. Imposing and hotheaded, she's not one to be crossed.
It was revealed in Oswald "The Penguin" Cobblepot's description that he works for Mooney.
The series stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, Erin Richards as Gordon's fiancee Barbara Kean, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot. Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome) wrote the script for the pilot and will executive produce the series. Danny Cannon (CSI, Nikita) will direct and executive produce. The pilot will air this fall.
