About a month ago, we found out that one of the last remaining classic Batman villains not to be utilized by Fox’s Gotham TV series was going to dive down the rabbit hole and head to the small screen for the show’s upcoming third season, and now we have our first official look at him.
Fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead will no doubt recall Benedict Samuel as the deranged member of The Wolves that was held prisoner by Morgan, and here’s the actor looking far more dapper as Jervis Tech, AKA The Mad Hatter.
EW also provides a character profile, which gives us some idea of what to expect from Tech’s first storyline:
A talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness. He arrives in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone’s guess just how far down the rabbit hole he’s willing to go in order to find her.
Samuel will recur, and is set to make his debut in episode 3, “Look Into My Eyes.” Gotham returns Monday, Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox, and you can check out the first season 3 footage right here.
