Deadline announces that actor Chris Chalk will be joining the cast of “Gotham” to play Lucius Fox at the end of season one:
Another key character from the DC Batman universe is heading to “Gotham”. Chris Chalk (“12 Years A Slave”) has been cast as Lucius Fox in the Fox drama series. He will appear in the penultimate Episode 21 of the current first season with an option to return in Season 2.
Lucius Fox is Wayne Enterprises’ resident tech genius. In a corporation shadowed by nefarious dealings, Fox emerges as a moral beacon for young Bruce Wayne. His desire to help Bruce uphold Thomas Wayne’s legacy eventually will earn him a spot as one of the boy’s most important confidants. Indeed, in the comics, Fox goes on to become Wayne Enterprises President/CEO when Bruce Wayne becomes Batman. The role was played by Morgan Freeman in the “Dark Knight” trilogy.
Chalk, who started off in theater in New York, is coming off a recurring role on HBO’s “The Newsroom”. He is repped by Stone Manners Salners and Brillstein Entertainment.
