Gotham has cast House of Card’s Nathan Darrow as Dr. Victor Fries, a.k.a. Mr. Freeze, in its second season.
Darrow is best known for playing Frank Underwood’s bodyguard, Edward Meechum, on the hit Netflix political drama
According to TVLine, Darrow’s Fries will be a recurring character.
“The first time we see Freeze is in December, and then we’re going to be telling a heavy Freeze story in Episodes 12 and 13,” Gotham EP John Stephens said.
Here’s the official character description:
Though ferociously smart and eminently capable in his work as one of Gotham’s preeminent cryogenics engineers, Victor struggles to make meaningful connections with others. The one exception is his wife, Nora (casting TBA), who has tragically fallen ill with a terminal disease. Victor’s love for Nora knows no bounds, so as her condition worsens, he goes to extreme measures to figure out a way to freeze her before she dies. This harrowing journey leads to his transformation into the legendary DC villain, Mr. Freeze.
Gotham airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
