The series, which will debut it's second season on Monday, September 21st, is a prequel to Batman and chronicles the life of Police Commissioner James Gordon, played by none other than Baccarin's new beau, Mc Kenzie.
The pair both star in the hit show in recurring roles that fell in love over the course of the show's first season.
Glamour: There's a great scene with you both at the end of the pilot.
Jim walks a fine line between being the good guy and keeping order and also having to conform to certain standards in order to achieve anything positive for the city.
Ben: Broadly speaking, what we're doing is the ascendancy of Jim to commissioner and the descendance of Gotham into anarchy.
Jim finds himself an honest man in a morally bankrupt city.
Mc Kenzie, 37, revealed that they had actually worked together before when Baccarin, 36, guest-starred alongside Mc Kenzie on The Brazilian beauty was previously married to Austin Chick, an American producer and director.Three years ago, I shared a dinner table at the swanky UNICEF Gala with Benjamin Schenkkan.We chatted about sports, our hometowns, and how he couldn't possibly leave before Lionel Richie performed (he had to be at work at a crazy-early hour the next day). Not that I would have minded—I've long admired Ben as an actor—but that night I was more interested in talking about everyday life.This role might be more similar than the other two. Glamour: This role reunites you with Fox again, but you've traded the sunny shores of Orange County for gritty Gotham. He called me and said,"I've written this part with you in mind, so I'd like you to take a look." That was very flattering, so that's how it started.I was never the kid from the wrong side of the tracks. I met Danny Cannon, who directed the pilot, and talked with him.Ben: I think you always bring a part of yourself to these characters. I could see myself getting a place out there, but I'm not wild about the dead of winter. If you have a great job, New York is a great place to be. Glamour: What sold you on *Gotham *and what was the audition like? Bruno Heller created the show, and we did a pilot last year together.In that sense, all of them are similar to me in different ways. I feel like that is maybe more similar to me, but it's a hard question to answer. It didn't go to series, but Bruno and I really hit it off.I grew up in a perfectly lovely family, upper-middle class. It's really hard—you can imagine reading it on the page and then thinking, There's an enormous amount of these legendary characters in a very condensed pilot.This could either be amazing or an enormous sh-t show.__Ben: We played on the same middle-school football team.I haven't talked to him in ages and haven't seen him in ages. I don't really have a pro team [that I root for] though.
