Gotham City is getting a new resident, as former Firefly and Homeland actress Morena Baccarin joins the cast of FOX’s Gotham.
Deadline reported that Baccarin will play the recurring character of Dr. Leslie Thompkins in the first season of the show, which recently received a 22-episode order from FOX. Thompkins is described as a dedicated physician who was a friend of the Waynes. We will meet her in her job at the newly opened Arkham Asylum’s Home for the Criminally Insane. In the comics, Thompkins plays a key role in the “War Games” story arc.
Baccarin’s first episode has not yet been announced.
