Former GILMORE GIRLS bad boy, turned NBC HERO is going back to the dark side. Yes, Warner Bros. Television has just announced that Milo Ventimiglia has signed on to guest star on GOTHAM. According to sources, Ventimiglia will play Jason Lennon, aka the Ogre (Editor’s Note: While this Ogre shares a nickname with a character from the DC Comics, it is a different character, not from the DC canon.). “Handsome, wealthy and seductive, the Ogre is a serial killer who has been preying on the young women of Gotham for nearly a decade, luring them into his web and confronting them with a series of “tests” as he searches for his perfect mate. When the women fail to live up to his impossible standard, Lennon disposes of them quickly and viciously. His obsessions, combined with Gordon’s determination to bring him down, send both Gordon and Lennon — and those around them — on a course toward tragedy.
Fans can expect their first glimpse of Ventimiglia in episode 19. GOTHAM airs Mondays at 8PM on FOX (CTV in Canada).
