During the Heroes and Villains Fan Fest panel for Gotham Sunday, actor Robin Lord Taylor, who portrays The Penguin on the show, spoke publicly about working with Paul Reubens (best known for his work as Pee Wee Herman) on the show. Reubens reprises his role as The Penguin's father, a role he played in 1992's Batman Returns.

The cast was asked who the biggest clowns on the set were, and Taylor spoke up.

"In my experience, it would be Paul freaking Reubens," he said with a laugh. "He, as we all know, is playing my father. He's an absolute delight. I think he's sky-rocketed to the top of the list in terms of actors who aren't in the core group on the show. He's beloved by everyone on set, and he's also absolutely hilarious. He'll do everything he can do to make you laugh and break in the scene."


Gotham returns to Fox February 29, 2016. Reubens' first appearance has not yet been announced, though it was shooting early in January.
