Over the past few episodes, Gotham has shined a light on the Wayne family business. Its board members don't exactly live by its founder's moral code. They have no problem stealing from Bruce and injuring Alfred in the process. The young teen needs help, and not just from Gordon.

You can't tell the story of a restructured Wayne Enterprises without introducing Lucius Fox. The character is a tech genius who becomes an ally to Bruce in his personal and professional life. According to Deadline, Fox makes his debut in Episode 21, and will be played by Chris Chalk.

Chalk is a theater veteran who's also racked up some impressive TV credits. He's appeared in HBO's The Newsroom and Showtime's Homeland, as well as FX's Sons of Anarchy and Justified. He also starred in the Oscar-winning film 12 Years a Slave. As Gotham's Fox, the door is open for him to become a recurring star in season two.

In the comics, Fox is a man of many talents. He's served as Bruce's business manager and the acting CEO of Wayne Enterprises. Plus, he's made multiple contributions to Batman's arsenal. He's a necessary addition to Gotham's roster.

What do you think of the new Lucius?
