The actor will play Gordon's partner and mentor, the rough-around-the-edges Detective Harvey Bullock, who plays loose with police procedure. Still, he gets results and does it with old-school, forceful panache.
Logue — whose credits also include Terriers, Vikings and Life — joins the previously cast Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Robin Lord Taylor as the Penguin, Erin Richards as Gordon's fiancée Barbara Keen and Zabryna Guevara as Gordon's boss, Captain Essen.
Mentalist creator Bruno Heller will write and executive-produce Gotham with Nikita's Danny Cannon.
