DC Entertainment and FOX have announced today that Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes”) has joined the cast of “Gotham” in a major, multiple-episode recurring arc as Jason Lennon, aka the Ogre.
Handsome, wealthy and seductive, the Ogre is a serial killer who has been preying on the young women of Gotham for nearly a decade, luring them into his web and confronting them with a series of “tests” as he searches for his perfect mate. When the women fail to live up to his impossible standard, Lennon disposes of them quickly and viciously.
His obsessions, combined with Gordon’s determination to bring him down, send both Gordon and Lennon — and those around them — on a course toward tragedy. Though his character shares a name with a villain from DC lore, he’s an all-new character for the series.
“Gotham” airs on Mondays at 8 P.M. EST on FOX.
