Michael Chiklis Becomes “Gotham” Regular

“The Shield” and “American Horror Story: Freak Show” actor Michael Chiklis has joined the cast of FOX’s “Gotham” series.

Chiklis has landed the series regular role of Captain Nathaniel Barnes who arrives at the Gotham City Police Department “like a tornado, ripping out the dead wood of the city’s police force” says the producers.

According to them he’s a law-and-order zealot unafraid of making enemies who becomes a strong ally and something of a mentor to Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), though one day he will become an equally powerful enemy.

“Gotham” returns with its second season on September 25th.
