From A Threesome With Lex Luthor To 'Gotham' For Mister Freeze

– by LRM

While Fox's Gotham may have initially been sold as an origin story for the one day Police Commissioner Jim Gordon, the series has shifted gears a bit for its second season. With the emphasis now being placed on Batman's iconic rogues (the tagline for Season 2 is "Rise of The Villains," naturally). As such, all eyes are on the bad guys now. Who'll show up next? Who'll play them? How much is the age gap between them and Bruce Wayne going to piss us off this time?

Well, enter Mister Freeze.

It has now come to light that Victor Fries, the mad scientist who likes to freeze things ever since his wife became ill and he lost his mind trying to put her on ice until he could find a cure, is going to be played by Nathan Darrow. The actor is best known for his work as Meechum in the hit Netflix series House of Cards. Darrow was part of one that show's buzzy moments from Season Two, when he participated in a threesome with Kevin Spacey (Superman Returns) and Robin Wright (The Princess Bride).

Darrow's a busy man. Not only will he be appearing in Gotham, and reappearing in House of Cards when it returns next year, but he's also snagged a recurring role in the Showtime series Billions

What do you think of his casting as Mister Freeze?
