Gotham adds Heroes’ Milo Ventimiglia to regular cast
First we fell in love with Milo Ventimiglia as the heart-meltingly handsome Jess Mariano in Gilmore Girls. Then, we lost a little of that love for him after watching the 2005 gross-out teen film Dirty Deeds… But he quickly won us back again as Peter Petrelli – the ability-replicating super-human in Heroes.
Now, instead of reinlisting for NBC’s revival series Heroes Reborn, he’s making the transformation from superhero to supervillain.
Set for a major recurring arc in Gotham as ‘the Ogre’, Milo will play a serial killer who’s been at work for the past decade seducing women with his money and good looks, and then confronting them with a series of ‘tests’, before disposing of them when they fail to meet his impossible standards… Dark!
The character is an entirely new creation for the show, rather than a reincarnation of a DC mainstay.
We just hope that Gotham‘s writers do a better job this time round than when they created the tacky red-fringed monster that is Fish Mooney.
