One of Batman's longest running allies has been Commissioner James Gordon. The steadfast and dedicated policeman has been committed to the city of Gotham nearly as long as Batman has. He is a strong symbol of the resilience of the people of Gotham and the fight for good. Although he has on occasion been pitted against the Dark Knight, he has always remain loyal to Gotham. Gordon has been present in many of Batman's comic appearances. In tv and film, many great actors have portrayed the character: Neil Hamilton in the 1960s Batman, Pat Hingle in the Batman films of the late 80s and 90s, Gary Oldman in the Dark Knight trilogy, and JK Simmons in the new DCEU. @mrbenmckenzie
portrays a fantastic version of a young Jim Gordon in @gothamonfox.
In Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures, Bob Hastings provides the voice with voice work in other projects done by Tom Kenney , Gary Cole and Jonathan Banks to name a few. The actor who plays Jim Gordon needs to recognize the commitment he has to the city and the legal and ethical boundaries he is forced to abide by to deliver peace and security to the city. There is an emotional depth to the character both in his loyalty to his city and to his family. I think the incredible @bryancranston
would do great work with this character. His resume needs no recounting although it is highlighted by comedic works like Malcolm in the Middle and @seinfeldtv
and one of the greatest tv dramas of all time-@amcbreakingbad.
I think Bryan Cranston is a great fit for this character. Who would you cast?? Next week: who is one of Batman's most clever villains who asks some of the most tricky questions Batman has ever faced? If you figure it out, that's who we'll cast!
