Gotham 1The first photos of The O.C.’s Ben McKenzie as a young Detective Jim Gordon have found their way online from the Brooklyn set of Gotham, and he is without his iconic (?) moustache!

However, while the actor was busy shooting an exciting rooftop chase, a younger version of one of his and Batman’s future foes was making his presence known on the streets of Gotham City; The Penguin, a.k.a Oswald Cobblepot, played by Robin Taylor. It seems fair to say that he certainly looks the part!

The photos are extremely interesting, and Gotham might just be one of 2014?s surprise small screen hits. What do you guys think? Be sure to let us know in the comment section at the bottom of the page!

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker? GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), GOTHAM follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
