There's a new villain in Gotham City and she's none other than Jada Pinkett Smith. The HawthoRNe star has signed on to play Fish Mooney in Gotham on Fox.
The character, which is original to the show, is described as a hothead "sadistic gangster boss" and owns one of Gotham's hottest nightclubs. She's got street smarts and "almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book."
Gotham chronicles the beginnings of Batman's rogues gallery. Southland star Ben McKenzie stars as James Gordon, the man who will one day become Batman's trusted ally and commissioner of the Gotham City police. Donal Logue has been tapped to play Detective Harvey Bullock, Gordon's partner.
