It’s official. Fox’s Gotham season three will introduce the DC villain Jervis Tetch also known as the Mad Hatter. According to Fox’s official announcement, “Jervis Tetch is a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness. He arrives in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone’s guess just how far down the rabbit hole he’s willing to go in order to find her.”

The Walking Dead fans will recognize Benedict Samuel as The Wolf in seasons five and six. In addition, the 28 year-old Samuel’s credits include The Walk starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Australia’s The Beautiful Lie. His resume also includes Secret City, By Way of Helena, The Stanford Prison Experiment, Asthma, Underground, and Home and Away. He earned a spot in Vogue Australia’s ‘Actors to Watch’ list and has appeared as the lead on stage in “Tis Pity She’s a Whore.”
