Gotham is getting some important new residents. James Frain will be playing Theo Galavan, while Jessica Lucas has been cast as his sister Tabitha, who later becomes the super-villain Tigress. Theo is described as a billionaire industrialist, and a “savior” of the city. Deadline continues,

He is sexy, heroic, and lovingly devoted to his sister Tabitha. But behind Galavan’s altruism is a centuries-old vendetta. Galavan and Tabitha (aka Tigress) will take chaos and violence to a new level in order to bleed Gotham. Their plan will lead to the creation of new villains… and the destruction of others.

intruders-james-frain-gotham-season-2With Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) out of the picture, it seems Theo will be taking over as Gotham’s big bad. That should be welcomed news, since Frain is a great actor who excels in these kind of roles. As for Lucas (who recently appeared on Fox’s Gracepoint), her bullwhip-toting badass Tabitha is an enforcer for her brother, and as TV Line describes, “she’s the opposite of her cold and calculating brother, deriving a sensual pleasure from the mayhem she’s tasked with making.

So what do you guys think of these new characters and their casting? Looking forward to Gotham Season 2 — or at least, willing to give it another shot?

Gotham will return to Fox Monday, September 21st, and will serve as the lead-in to the new series Minority Report.
