Doctor Hugo Strange is heading to Gotham, and you should be very afraid. TV Insider revealed the first look of BD Wong (Law & Order: SVU) as the Arkham Asylum mad scientist, which the actor posted to his Instagram page on Monday.
Strange will make his first appearance on the episode "Mr. Freeze" when Gotham returns from winter hiatus on Feb. 29. He'll be in charge of the new Arkham — and potentially has ties to the mysterious Indian Hill laboratory located underneath.
Wong is sporting a chinstrap beard and rose-colored glasses, much like his comic book counterpart. The actor also revealed to that he'll be dealing with a familiar face inside of Arkham - the Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor). "[Penguin] is never the same from the moment he walks through the door," Wong tells TV Insider. He has nothing good to say of Strange's intentions either. "What [he] is doing in there is indeed very, very bad," he says. "Imagine the worst thing someone might do. Then multiply that by 10."
