Michael Cerveris (Fringe) is set to join the cast of Fox show Gotham as it returns for Season 4.
Cerveris will be joining the show as Professor Pyg a DC Comics villain. Pyg aka Lazlo Valentin was the porcine mask-wearing, schizophrenic Circus of Strange leader who was known for his “Dollotrons” — victims to whom he affixed doll-like masks.
“Michael is one of my best friends,” Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon told TVLine during their Fall Preview Q&A. “He was in my film school graduation movie, when we were both amateurs. And now he’s joining the fold as Professor Pyg,” in a multi-episode arc.
Gotham returns on Sept 21 for Season 4 in a move to Thursdays on Fox.
