With recent news that Michael Chiklis would be joining Fox's Gotham we now know get a glimpse into his character. Michael Chiklis will be playing a new character and the new Gotham PD police commissioner Nathaniel Barnes. “[Barnes] lands on the GCPD like a tornado,” reads the official description of the Michael Chiklis Gotham character, “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, 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.”
Gotham is set to return to FOX on Monday, September 21, 2015.
