Two more big pieces of Fox's Gotham series are finally in place, and one of them is the future Caped Crusader.
TV Line is reporting that the series, which will give us early versions of many of Gotham City's most enduring citizens, has finally cast both a young Bruce Wayne and a young Selina Kyle. These two teen actors will join an already large cast that includes Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock and Jada Pinkett Smith as gangster Fish Mooney, among others. So let's meet them.
In the role of Bruce Wayne, we've got David Mazouz.
Mazouz is best known for his performance as the autistic but brilliant Jake Bohm on the now-canceled Fox series Touch. Now he'll be the young billionaire left without his parents and cared for by his loyal butler, confidante and guardian, Alfred.
In the role of Selina Kyle, we've got dancer, actress and model Camren Bicondova.
She'll play a teenage version of Kyle, an orphan pickpocket who is "wholly unpredictable" and "dangerous when cornered." Bicondova's dance background also makes this casting more interesting. After all, Selina Kyle needs to move in ways other Gothamites simply can't.
Just how much the show will focus on these teenage future legends is unclear at this point, but we're hoping to see plenty of formative moments that point toward their respective futures as two of Gotham's greatest icons.
Gotham is expected to premiere this fall.
