First Look at Ben Mckenzie as James Gordon in “Gotham”

Doesn’t look awful or anything, but where is the Gordonstache? Are they purposefully not going with it for this version or will it be added later? He doesn’t quite feel like Gordon without the mustache, more like any old generic cop in a crime drama.

I am excited for this series but am wary of it at the same time. The concept is interesting, but I don’t want it to fall into some of the same problems as Smallville (2001-2011) did, ie bringing in characters and storylines that wouldn’t have been introduced into the universe that early in the characters’ lives (like Zod in Smallville, for example). Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
