Michael Chiklis Brings True Grit To ‘Gotham’

Late Tuesday night it was announced that Michael Chiklis would join the cast of Gotham as a series regular in the role of Captain Nathaniel Barnes.

Barnes character description from TVLine per Gotham’s producers:

He lands on the GCPD like a tornado, ripping out the dead wood of Gotham’s police force. He is a law and order zealot; unafraid of making enemies – on either side of the law. For Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Barnes is a hero and a mentor, someone with whom he can share the burden of heroism. Captain Barnes proves himself to be a strong ally to Gordon… but one day he will make an equally powerful enemy.

Chiklis made famous for his role in The Shield, will bring an anger to Gotham unlike no other.
