First Official Photo Of Ben McKenzie As Jim Gordon From ‘Gotham’ Looks Bummed, Mustache-Free
The rollout of official photos of characters from the new Fox series Gotham continues as actor Ben McKenzie tweeted fans’ first look at series star Jim Gordon.
While it appeared Donal Logue’s Harvey Bullock will have a little more facial hair than the comics version, Gordon will notably have less. That’s right: McKenzie won’t be rocking Gordon’s signature mustache in the role. He honestly looks a little distraught about it, but hey, Batman ’66 Gordon didn’t have a mustache, did he? And he came out OK. Chin up, fella.
Here’s the tweet:
