Cory Michael Smith set to play Ridder on Fox's Gotham

Apr. 1, 2014by: Niki Stephens

The Riddler is a popular item today, huh?

Cory Michael Smith is set to take on the role in Fox's GOTHAM. Smith may not be a name that you are familiar with. The actor most recently starred on the stage alongside Emilia Clarke in the adaptation of BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S. He can check him out next in CAMP X-RAY which stars Kristen Stewart, and premiered at this year’s Sundance.

Most of you may be well acquainted with Edward Nigma (but Nygma with a y for the show), but for those who are not, here’s a character description from the series:

Nygma is a brilliant young forensic scientist working for Gotham PD and a penchant for speaking in … rather cryptic language. Inquisitive, eccentric and outgoing — yet socially awkward — he wants to be liked, but he doesn’t quite know how.

Smith will come on the series as a guest star with the option to be a series regular. I haven’t seen Smith in any roles, so it’s a little too early to judge if he fits the character or not.

GOTHAM debuts this Fall on Fox.

Gotham debuts this fail on Fox

Ugh, I really wish this wasn't happening. The cast, the story, the leaked scripts all point to this being the worst new show of the Fall season.

Sounds reminiscent of how the Riddler was characterised in Arkham Origins.

If he's the same guy,

he voiced a pretty solid Joker in the recent LEGO Batman movie. In that case, he has some decent chops. I think this is good casting.

He definitely looks the part. I just hope the show does the Riddler justice because the Riddler has always been one of my more favorite Batman villains while growing up.

I would have loved to have seen Nolan's take on the villain in one of his films. Hopefully Snyder and co don't wait too long to introduce him into the new Batman films.

I hope by Justice you mean talking in a horrible accent and making horrible jokes, worse than Jim Carreys Riddler.
