Harvey Dent Cast For ‘Gotham’
The FOX drama Gotham adds another face to its cast. Nicholas D’Agosto has been picked to play Harvey Dent, the man who would go on to be the district attorney for Gotham as well as the Batman villain Two-Face. D’Agosto is best known for his role as Dr. Ethan Haas on Showtime’s Masters of Sex.
The description of Dent via TVLine is a character who is “handsome, warm and engaging”, which sounds not unlike Harvey Dent before his transformation. As of now, the character will make appearances in the remainder of the first season with a potential to carry over into the second season.
In the comics, Dent has his face disfigured by mob boss Sal Maroni after he tosses sulfuric acid at his face (see Batman Annual #14 or The Long Halloween). Maroni has already been cast for Gotham and will be played by Dexter alumni David Zayas.
