Chris Chalk cast as Lucius Fox on ‘Gotham’

Chris Chalk from 12 Years A Slave has been cast as Lucius Fox on Gotham. He is scheduled to appear in Episode 21 of the current season. Deadline reports that he has an option to appear in Season 2.

Lucius Fox is the tech genius of Wayne Enterprises, and on the show, he emerges as a “moral beacon” for the young Bruce Wayne. In the comics, when Bruce Wayne becomes Batman, Fox becomes the President/CEO of the company. Morgan Freeman played the role in the Dark Knight movie trilogy.

In other news, Jada Pinkett-Smith announced on Friday on Live with Kelly and Michael that she will not be back for Season 2 — thus spoiling whatever is going to happen to her character Fish Mooney this season.

Gotham returns with new episodes Monday, April 13.
