I'm fairly certain my editor has gone to bed on the east coast, so it's safe for me to link to Latino Review & El Mayimbe. Although much like the Johnny Depp/Dr. Strange story from yesterday, the scoop is once again being refuted by the actor involved almost instantly. Not that a denial means much lately -- we watched Marvel and Paul Rudd deny Ant-man rumors up until the announcement that he was cast.
This rumor follows the exciting news about the premise of the new Gotham show. Latino Review is reporting that Donal Logue has been offered the part of James Gordon, a part described for the show as a young twenty-something detective. The 47 year old actor is quite talented, but even he isn't so sure he has that range.
So, before you start thinking this show might become worth watching, we wanted to give you both sides of the hype train. LR says he was offered a role, Logue says he wasn't. Actors and Studios lie until they are allowed talk about projects. Rumor websites get stuff wrong all the time. What does all this mean? Well, mostly that we know nothing more about Gotham than we did at the beginning of this article. Just remember -- If Logue takes the part it's "scoop points," and if nothing comes of it, it's just Hollywood baby. We only keep score when it pans out.
