Just who will play Gotham's Joker?
We know that Fox's fall drama Gotham will be introducing us to young Bruce Wayne, and we've seen a growing cast of classic Batman villains added to the cast. But on the subject Batman's most famed villain, the Joker, Gotham has remained oddly silent.
It's hard to keep a secret in the internet era, and so it's no surprise that the rumor mill has a good idea of who has the role: Jon Beavers, who's playing the role of a comedian in the pilot episode. But of course the show's producers knows how internet rumors go and Bleeding Cool reports that they're toying with us -- and intend to keep it up all season, with a new character in each episode who just might turn out to be the Joker.
Well, that is one way to keep a secret from prying internet eyes -- but will the suspense keep viewers tuning in? We'll have to check out the show this fall to find out.
