Paul Reubens will be reprising his Batman Returns role in an upcoming episode of Fox's Gotham. Revealed during a panel at New York Comic Con, Reubens originally played Oswald Cobblepot (a.k.a. the Penguin)'s father.
"Pee Wee Herman is playing my dad!" said Robin Lord Taylor, who plays Oswald Cobblepot in Gotham.
Lord Taylor spoke with Newsarama in September about his desire for Reubens in this role.
"I had the immense pleasure of meeting Paul Rubens the other day and I’ve been a lifelong Pee Wee Herman fan and I’m sure as you know he played Oswald’s father in Batman Returns," Lord Taylor told Newsarama. "I would just love it if we could establish Oswald’s parents and have him be Paul Rubens, that would be incredible.”
