Benedict Samuel Is Mad Hatter In “Gotham”

FOX and WBTV have selected “The Walking Dead” actor Benedict Samuel to take on the iconic role of The Mad Hatter on the upcoming third season of the Batman prequel series “Gotham”.

The character first debuted in 1948 and was previously played by David Wayne in the original 1960s Batman series and voiced by Roddy McDowall in the 1990s animated series. Here’s how “Gotham” describes him:

“Jervis Tetch is a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness. He arrives in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone’s guess just how far down the rabbit hole he’s willing to go in order to find her.”

“Gotham” Season 3 will premiere on September 19th.
