Jada Pinkett Smith (Hawthorne) has been cast in Fox’s upcoming Gotham TV series, which will focus on the early years of DC’s Batman character. She will be a series regular as the gangster Fish Mooney. Mooney is described as a “sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner” with “street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book.” She will also be the boss to a young Penguin played by Robin Lord Taylor.

Jada Pinkett Smith is definitely a good choice to play a Gotham City crime boss. She has proven herself numerous times before, in films like The Matrix Reloaded and TV shows like Hawthorne, that she can play someone tough and in control.

Pinkett will be joining an already star-studded cast that includes Ben McKenzie (Southland), Donal Logue (Sons of Anarchy) and more.
