This past weekend, I had the pleasure of speaking with Drew Powell. He plays the notorious Butch Gilzean on the series Gotham. A credit to his acting skills, Drew is a great and likable person and doesn’t show the often hard exterior of Butch. I talked to Drew at his booth at the Heroes & Villains FanFest in Nashville. And since we were in Music City, it was only fitting that he brought his guitar.
