Gotham - Season 2B - Michael Bowen & Lori Petty Join Cast

“Gotham” has cast “Orange is the New Black” star Lori Petty in an upcoming episode of the Fox drama, Variety has learned exclusively.

Petty (who is no stranger to comic book roles, having played Tank Girl in the cult 1995 film of the same name) will appear in episode 214 of the DC Comics-based drama when it returns for the back half of its sophomore season in early 2016. Petty will play Jeri, the flamboyant and enigmatic hostess of an underground club where mass murder and art are celebrated in equal measure. Jeri gives clues to Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) during his hunt for his parents’ killer, but she and her gang of merry maniacs are less helpful when Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) comes calling.

Michael Bowen, best known as Uncle Jack on Breaking Bad (also Lost, multiple Quentin Tarantino films), has been cast in the role of Patrick "Matches" Malone on Gotham, set to debut in the second half of season two, ComicBook.com can exclusively report. The character description doesn't give us too much to go on, but does offer a tiny bit of insight into him.

"One of Gotham's deadliest killers, Matches Malone is a weathered, philosophical hitman who may be the triggerman behind one of the most important crimes in Gotham's history."

Matches Malone in the pages of DC Comics is a small-time crook who really is just a product of Gotham City, committing crimes simply to get by. When he dies, Batman covers the death up, and assumes the identity of Matches when he needs to go undercover amongst Gotham's criminal element. He's even been thrown in prison (on purpose) as Matches Malone before.
