Shane West has joined the cast of Fox's Gotham, according to Deadline. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen star will reportedly play Eduardo Dorrance, "an old Army buddy of Jim Gordon's." In comic books, Bane's father is Sir Edmund Dorrance (a.k.a. King Snake).
"Having lost touch with Jim after the war, Dorrance returns to Gotham years later, leading a team of elite soldiers with the goal of helping Gordon restore order to No Man’s Land," reads Deadline's description of the role. "But as the scales fall from Gordon’s eyes, he realizes Dorrance’s true intentions in Gotham are much darker and more evil than he could have believed."
Gotham's fifth season is scheduled to launch in 2019 on Fox.
