Paul Reubens joins Gotham


Pee Wee Herman is coming to Gotham.

At the New York Comic Con panel on the weekend Gotham executive producer John Stephens revealed that Paul Reubens would be joining the show’s second season in the recurring guest role of Oswald Cobblepot’s (Robin Lord Taylor) father.

In 1992’s Batman Returns, Reubens made a cameo as Tucker Cobblepot, the shamed aristocrat who thought he was disposing of his deformed baby Oswald by pushing his stroller into a river.

A sizzle reel also played at Comic Con.

The cast of Gotham made their second appearance at New York Comic-Con this weekend! Series stars Ben McKenzie, Robin Lord Taylor, Cory Michael Smith, Erin Richards as well as new cast members Michael Chiklis, James Frain and Jessica Lucas and Executive Producer John Stephens answered fan questions, and debuted an exclusive sizzle reel with all new footage from the 10/12 episode of Gotham.


  1. Great casting. Now the big question here is when and what channel Gotham will appear next. Having spent the first half of season one on nine and the second half on Go!, its anyone’s guess with Arrow gone to foxtel and all.

  2. I quit Gotham after season 1 but about 2 weeks before season 2 started I read Michael Chiklis was joining as a regular I decided to keep watching because I loved him in The Shield 3 episodes have aired so far and he still isn’t there. Does anyone know what episode Michael Chiklis will be starting in?
