"Wire" Alum Leo Fitzpatrick Heads to "Gotham"

The upcoming second season of Fox's "Gotham" plans on focusing on "The Rise of Villains," and while fans can already expect more Penguin, Harvey Dent and newcomers Tigress and Mr. Freeze, there's still another to add to the list: Joe Pike, leader of a notorious gang of arsonists known as the Pike Brothers.

As reported by Deadline, actor Leo Fitzpatrick of "The Wire" will play the city's fire-happy hooligan and is set for a reoccurring role on the series sophomore season. He joins Jessica Lucas' Tigress and James Frain's Theo as the city's latest villainous additions. Mr. Freeze, also confirmed for the season, has yet to be cast.

Starring Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue and David Mazouz, "Gotham" returns to Fox on Monday, Sept. 21 at 8 pm EST.
