Jada Pinkett Smith has been cast in the series regular role of the sadistic gangster Fish Mooney in FOX's one-hour Batman-themed drama series "Gotham".
Created for the series, Mooney is a nightclub owner with street smarts and a keen perception of people who is hotheaded and doesn't like to be crossed. In the series, the future 'Penguin' Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) works for her.
The series itself explores the origin stories of James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and the villains that made Gotham famous. Bruno Heller wrote the pilot script and will serve as executive producer.
