Gotham Casts Benedict Samuel As Mad Hatter

Gotham is ready to play some mind games.

According to TVLineGotham is ready to play some mind games. The show has cast The Walking Dead‘s Benedict Samuel as DC Comics’ brain-manipulating Mad Hatter, aka Jervis Tetch.

Per the official casting description provided by Fox and Warner Bros., Tetch is a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness. He arrives in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone’s guess just how far down the rabbit hole he’s willing to go in order to find her.

Samuel recurred on The Walking Dead in Season 6 as the Wolf that Carol caught Morgan trying to rehabilitate (and ultimately killed). Additional credits include the Robert Zemeckis-directed feature The Walk and the Australian miniseries The Beautiful Lie.

This is Gotham‘s fourth major new hire ahead of Season 3, joining James Carpinello’s Mario Falcone, Jamie Chung’s Valerie Vale and Maggie Geha’s new Poison Ivy.

Gotham‘s third season is set to debut on Monday, Sept. 19 at 8/7. We here at SciFi Pulse look forward to what Benedict Samuel and these new additions bring to the prequel’s universe.
