Fox is starting its rollout of Gotham promotion. The DC Comics-based pilot is a prequel centering on James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), the man who would become Commissioner and Batman's ally. Below, we've got the first character poster for Gordon's partner Detective Harvey Bullock, as played by Donal Logue.

In Gotham, Bullock pulls double duty as Gordon's mentor. He's described as being "rough around the edges." He also "plays loose with police procedure, but gets results — and he does so with old-school, hard-ass panache." Bullock is usually portrayed as younger than Gordon, but obviously here the roles have been reversed.

The Gotham pilot is executive-produced and written by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome). It will be directed by Danny Cannon, who's best known for his work on Nikita and The Tomorrow People. The rest of the Gotham cast includes Jada Pinkett Smith and Sean Pertwee.

Does anyone else notice the faint Batsignal in the background? What do you think of Logue as Harvey Bullock?
