15 Asian American Actors who Could Play Villains in the Upcoming TV Show ‘Gotham’


Courtesty of YOMYOMF:

FOX announced last week that it would be developing a new TV series entitled Gotham set in a pre-Batman Gotham City and focusing on the origins of the Dark Knight’s future ally Commissioner James Gordon. Although Batman himself is not scheduled to appear in the show, his villains will (yes, I find that a little odd too). And because I’m all about helping out, I’m here to offer the producers some casting decisions that may not be the obvious choices.

Hollywood has occasionally changed the race of supporting comic book characters to reflect a more diverse world—usually turning white characters into African Americans i.e. Perry White in Man of Steel, The Martian Manhunter in Smallville and Harvey Dent himself in Tim Burton’s Batman—so in that spirit, here are my humble suggestions for fifteen Asian American actors who could play some of Gotham’s most notorious baddies and bring some more much-needed “color” to the Dark Knight’s world.
