The FOX/WBTV drama project "Gotham" has cast the final two series regular roles of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle. Just released, "David Mazouz ("Touch") has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne, sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents. Serious and soulful, young Bruce relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and James Gordon."

The role of "Selina Kyle" goes to newcomer, Camren Bicondova (who bears a striking resemblance to Michelle Pfeiffer). Selina is described as a "teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A street thief and skilled pickpocket, she’s dangerous when cornered."

The new drama series is based upon characters published by DC Comics, and will examine the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous. It should be noted that the series is not a “Batman” show and that David Mazouz is not playing "Batman" but young "Bruce Wayne."

The pilot script was written by Bruno Heller ("The Mentalist," "Rome") and he will also serve as an executive producer.  The pilot will be directed by and executive produced by Danny Cannon (the CSI series, "Nikita").

As of now, the series regulars are Ben McKenzie (Detective James Gordon), Donal Logue (Detective Harvey Bullock), Zabryna Guevara (Captain Essen), Erin Richards (Barbara Kean), Sean Pertwee (Alfred Pennyworth), Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin), David Mazouz (Bruce Wayne), Camren Bicondova (Selina Kyle) and Jada Pinkett Smith (Fish Mooney).

We'll keep you posted on any new developments on the series.
