Milo Ventimiglia, who is no stranger to the world of superheroes, is the latest addition to Gotham. Having starred on the hit show Heroes and having voiced Wolverine in the eponymous anime, he should be right at home. Milo will play Jason Lennon, The Ogre in a multi-episode arc starting with episode 19. Keep in mind this is not the same Ogre from the pages of DC Comics.
The character is described as follows:
Handsome, wealthy and seductive, the Ogre is a serial killer who has been preying on the young women of Gotham for nearly a decade, luring them into his web and confronting them with a series of “tests” as he searches for his perfect mate. When the women fail to live up to his impossible standard, Lennon disposes of them quickly and viciously.
His obsessions, combined with Gordon’s determination to bring him down, send both Gordon and Lennon — and those around them — on a course toward tragedy.
