‘Gotham’ Casting News: The Ogre

Gotham’s” roster of villains has just added one more and this one has a thing for female victims and this new villain calls for a new cast in the show. Who’s this villain? Read below for the full details.

The show has tapped Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes”) for a recurring guest role as Jason Lennon or most commonly known for his villain name “the Ogre.”


According to Variety, Ventimiglia’s character is a handsome and wealthy man who is “a serial killer that targets young women of Gotham.” This has been going on for almost a decade and with his killer looks and money in his favor, he uses this to lure women to him and conduct a number of tests to find his perfect mate. However, no one has passed these tests yet due to his awfully high standards and what does he do when a woman fails the test? Of course, he disposes them by killing them.

Jim Gordon is determined to take him down but with power on his side and his obsession with what he does. This is going to cause a frenzy between the two and Gordon will not be able to dispose of him right away especially that his role is recurring. It only means that we will see him from time to time throughout the first season of the show, or even in the next seasons to come.
